We understand your concerns

Human Immunodeficiency Virus actually affects the immunity of the infected person. The person slowly slowly loses immunity. The tests must have shown the presence of the virus if you are infected. It is already 4 months after the incident. Therefore there are every chance that you had not contracted the HIV virus. But before concluding, get the test done once again from another lab. Good luck.
