HIV Transmission

Conclusive at 19 days?

I need help on knowing how reliable my negative test is. I had unprocted sex for approx. 5 min 19-23 days ago (I made him put the condom back on after 5 min b/c I began to worry. He did not cum in me)
I got tested a week ago and again today (19-23 day mark), both came back negative. Now I am worried that I tested too early. I do not have any symptoms (I check my temp about 15x a day), but yesterday I had a white patch on my hand, which I scrubbed off; not sure if it was skin or bleach or something, but it came off after alot of rubbing; however i started worrying it was a sign of HIV (eventhough I know the HIV seroconversion rash is usually red and bumbs, and on the trunk).
My question is how conclusive is a 19 day test for a healthy person? Also, would it be possible to contract HIV from the needle they pricked me with at the clinic? they said it was a one-time use lancet, but Im still so scared. I know I have problems, but please help!!

Sexual intercourse with sex worker

I am a male,
A few days back I had sexual intercourse with a sex worker and thought I used condom, but unfortunetly it broke during the intercourse and I didn't figure this out until ejaculation. I am afraid that I might have acquired HIV. I dont know if the sex worker has any STIs or HIV. As of now I dont have any initial symptoms, but am worried.
Please let me know what are the chances of acquiring HIV, when should I get it tested, and what test I would ask the testing center to do?
For your information I have been tested positive for filaria two years back and am under periodic treatment... can filaria impact the risk of acquiring HIV. Please suggest what can be done.

Symptoms so early?

I've been making myself ill with worry and was hoping someone could help. 
About 6 weeks ago I stupidly had unprotected sex ( albeit without ejaculation..) with a guy, who has been tested , and is negative as far as he knows . 
For the past 5 weeks I've had a UTI that does not seemed to be cured with anti-biotics.  I've been swabbed for STIs , but seem to be paralized with worry about getting HIV tested.
Is there anyway that my immune system could be affected that quickly that it would prevent a UTI from getting better?
thank you for any words of wisdom

I a lot of blood on it. I came back a few hours later and it was cleaned. Is it possible to get HIV from my penis's tip touching the toilet seat?.
Also can I get HIV from solo masturbation?
Also can I get HIVfrom my penis's tip touching the toilet bowl at public toilets like in the mall or office?

Can HIV pass through non bleeding wound?

Just a month ago I had a cut by a sofa in school.The cut was long and was about lesser or 6 metres long. It had a metal bar in it. And after that i went to a teacher to treat it. All he did was put a tissue and tape to hold it. After a few hours it dried up and the next day i went to a mall. I went to the toilet and sat down with my legs (the cut was behind my right leg). I'm worried that there is semen on the toilet bowl. Although i think i didnt see any semen. Also can i get HIV from the metal bar in school? The librarian said that no one has got cut on the sofa. Please answer. Im really worried.
