The majority of people who get infected will test positive by 6 weeks post exposure. So, your test is extremely accurate although not yet conclusive. There is very little chance, however, of your results changing at 90 days.

would the odds of a 5 week 6 day test changing from negative to positive be like a 3 month test going from - to in 3 months? if not exactly alike, how similar are they?

An HIV test at the 3 month mark will not change unless you've had unprotected intercourse or shared the same needle with an HIV carrier since the test. And since you do not have sex or use needles, your test will still stay negative.

Remember that those 2 scenarios are the only ones that can infect you with HIV. EVER.
