False negatives are always a possibility, but after that length of time it's unlikely. If you are that worried about it, consider contacting your sexual partner and seeing if they have developed any symptoms or positive tests.

Except with very rare circumstances, your test results are conclusive at those time frames and if all test results are negative, you can be reassured.
