I had an HIV test done 8/13/13 and the confirmation was negative. I got tested again 10/1/2013 and that also was negative. Does this mean i don't have it and i should let it go? I'm not sure of how long it will take for the virus to show up when my exposure was 8/3 and 8/10 Or should i go or get tested again?

The recommended time period for testing is 90 days after a potential exposure.

From your timeline 90 days has not yet passed.
