Possible pregnancy: Urine pregnancy tests turn positive around the time you would have your period, but not always. It sounds like you should have started your period this week? If you do not start by the weekend, then i would see a doctor next week for repeat testing and possibly a blood pregnancy test.

Maybe: Condoms give about 85% protection for hiv. You should be tested in another 6 months. The tests you just did show that you did not have HIV before the exposure, but you may take 6-12 months to have a positive HIV test from an exposure.

MRI: If you are looking for soft tissue injuries, an MRI is often the best test. Nerve damage is often temporary and the nerves regrow / repair in 6-12 weeks. Muscle/tendon tears often need surgery.
