Covid and H pylori will not affect HIV results. It would be better to get a HIV nucleic acid test at 6 months after exposure to be sure of your freedom from HIV. For healthy diet: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/., exercise 30 minutes/day, drink enough water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. Get HPV and Covid vaccines.
