Yes...: If you practice unprotected sexual intercourse and if you have been sexually active within the last one month.

Yes: What's important in the interim between initial negative HIV test and repeat test is "protected" "safe" sex, not just "sex" which exposes you repeatedly to opportunity for infection. Don't forget that HIV is not the only std that can be transmitted so be sure to get tested for "everything".

Can but not final: You can get tested a month after potential exposure but a negative result this soon after exposure will not rule out HIV infection. Visit this site for info: https://www.cdc.gov/hiv/testing/index.html
