HIV time frame

Hello! I was just wondering if I am already at the clear from HIV. Here's what happened. Dec 23 2017 - I had given a guy an oral sex but he wanted to anal me. We tried but it would not fit. Though it let me bleeding for short moment. He had no condom. But I already remove the pre-cum earlier on oral sex. Jan 18 2018 - I did a check-up and I am HIV negative. But the time frame should be 3 months. Although during this time I have no symptoms. I am not experiencing any flu like symptoms. Jan 20 2018 - I found out that I have lack of iron on my blood which made me weak and dizzy. Feb 20 2018 (Current day) - I have not still experienced any other issue. Though it's not yet 3 months.. So please... do you think I am safe?

The 4th Generation HIV tests are able to detect HIV antibodies within 4 - 6 weeks of HIV infection. Test again now and if it is negative then you are negative
