Brief Answer:
You are free from HIV 1 infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to HCM.
Thanks for posting your query.

HIV Antibody test on 30th day was not conclusive as it is well within the window period. HIV RNA test done (Usually detects HIV 1 antigen only) after 52 days of your high risk activity is very much conclusive and ruled out HIV 1 infection which is the commonest one throughout the world except in XXXXXXX
So it is assured beyond doubt that you are free from HIV 1 infection. Nothing to worry. If you send more details about your sexual activities that also may be helpful to assure you in a better way.
