No: Testing at 90 days is conclusive, as long as there has not been interval exposure.

Stop testing!: You have been seriously overtested given the low risk nature of the exposure. The overall HIV risk for a single episode of unprotected vaginal sex with a woman in the US of "unknown HIV status" probably averages under one in a million. A single negative duo test at 28 days or more after the exposure would have been conclusive. For sure you were not infected.
