You're good: The p24 tests are very reliable at one month. Along with the normal oraquick which is maybe 98% reliable, I'd consider yourself HIV-free. If you are obsessing over this and willing to throw away some money, get a PCR for the virus, but I wouldn't advise it. And cherish having shared love, imperfect as it always is. Be more careful next time, but look back on a wonderful experience.
