    Hi, I slept with a guy almost 2 months ago, and during intercourse i realized he took the condom off. I was nervous afterwards because i didn't know his HIV status, it wasn't in my plans to have unprotected sex. Any way I've taken two test since then a rapid test and one with blood once i found out he gave me gonorrhea. If both of my HIV test came back negative, should i still be worried? Because that's all i can think about is what if he gave me more than just gonorrhea....

    The recommended time period for HIV testing is 3 months (90 days) after a potential exposure.

    So....while your 2 previous tests are likely accurate in terms of your status, you haven't mentioned exactly how much past the event of the unprotected intercourse you actually got tested except that it was less than 3 months.

    Yes, although the January 25th test result is a pretty good indication of a negative status.
