There I had unprotected sex with a white heterosexual

Resolved Question:

Hi there
I had unprotected sex with a white heterosexual male 3 weeks ago, I went for a sexual health screen today which included a rapid HIV test that's 4 weeks accurate from exposure. I am showing no symptoms of anything but I had worked my dates out incorrectly, is there still a significant chance of HIV or can I be reasonably confident that I'm ok?
Thanks S

The HIV rapid test was negative

No, you need to be tested after the 4 week window has passed.

Ok. Am I a high risk?
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 1 year ago.
Are you male or female? Do you know the hiv status of the man?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Female, it was vaginal and oral sex. I had sex with this man 8 weeks ago too. He maintains that he has slept with no one else recently but I am anxious.

I think what I'm saying is that could he have potentially caught HIV and passed it to me in between the 2 dates that we had sex.
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 1 year ago.
I do not do phone calls. Your risk for this type of exposure is less than 1/1000

I'm sorry but I'm so unbelievably stressed - is that a low risk?!
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 1 year ago.
Its a very low risk. Repeat the test in one week
