Suggest chances of HIV infection with oral sex

hi doctor. I had oral sex about a month ago. I had a pcr Hiv test done about 8 days after that. The result was Hiv negative. I had another pcr hiv test done about 5 days Ago. The result also came back negative. Do I need to do Another test or does these two test confirm that I am Hiv negative?

Hi,
Welcome to HCM.
Oral sex carries a low risk for HIV.
HIV PAR is highly reliable. Even though it can detect HIV antigen from the week 1 on wards, false negative is also common. It becomes more conclusive after 4 weeks.
A negative HIV PCR 4 weeks after the high risk activity ruled out the possibility of HIV 1 (The commonest). Both HIV and 2 can be ruled out by an antibody based test by 12 weeks after the high risk activity.
