You have been way overtested. Please stop. The IgAb (4th gen, "combo") HIV tests are among the most accurate diagnostic tests ever developed, for any medical condition. After 6 weeks, they overrule any and all s ymptoms and exposures: And your risk was low anyway: one episode of vaginal sex with an infected woman transmits HIV only once for ever 2,500 exposures. Move on without worry.
