Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to HCM.
Thanks for posting your query.
Your test results are very much conclusive beyond any doubt. You are free from both HIV 1 and 2.
Tests done by the end of 12 weeks after the high risk activity itself is conclusive You had repeated up to 7 months. Not necessary to repeat any more test for HIV unless you have further risky exposure.
