Test agian?

Hi cyberdoc,
3 Years ago i had a HIV test which was negative  the doctor said it may still be to early to tell exactly (as the incident only happened 3 months prior to the 1st test) so i must come back in 6 months to get retested,which i did and the results came back negative. I heard somewhere that its best to test yourself everynow and again as i may lie dormant in your system  is that true? should i test again.
thanx

It will be a good idea to have the test repeated, as there is a window period of 3 to 9 months.
