Should be ok: If the exposure was unprotected sex then first off it would be extremely helpful if your partner does not have known HIV. But I assume you don't know this so your test is a reliable method of determination. However if you had unprotected sex more than once- your risk is obviously higher so try to practice safe sex 100% of the time.
