Hello welcome to 'Ask A Doctor' service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advise.

Your main concern is regarding HIV diagnosis. After six week of exposure fourth generation ELISA testing can be done to effectively rule out HIV. It is advisable to repeat test again after three month of exposure. So repeat test after three month of exposure. If you want to rule out HIV earlier than western blot like molecular testing can be done. Western blot is confirmatory test for HIV as well.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
