Hi, welcome to HCm, I am Dr. Das
for declaring that you have not get HIV infection, 3 HIV test required, first as basic, second after 3 months, third after 6 months.
So, from your history, it can be said that there is rare chance of getting HIV infection.
But, if you want confirmation, do a DNA PCR study .

After 3 moths HIV test becomes positive so you have gone for test for HIV 2 times after 3 months of exposure and both tests are negative so it is lee likely to have HIV.
