Brief Answer:
You need to get tested again after 3 months.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXX,

Welcome to HCM.

The risk of getting HIV from single act of unprotected sex is very unlikely even if the partner is HIV positive and your CMIA test result after 4 weeks of exposure is also negative so you need not to worry much about HIV as this result is considered highly reliable and accurate.

Any value below one for CMIA test is considered as negative so don't get bothered about it as it has not of much significance. You need to get tested again after three months as per the guidelines and the result will surely come in your favor. Be relaxed and move on in life happily.

Thank You
