All these results are conclusive. No more testing is needed. (Also, with oral sex your only exposure, you were at zero risk for some of these infections, including HIV, trichomonas, and M. genitalium; and almost no risk for chlamydia.)

Yes they are. You can move on but remember you were lucky next time might be different. There are other infections e.g. herpes. Pl take maximum precautions when having sex .
