Answer: 

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the conclusiveness of your test results. 4th Generation tests are considered conclusive at 6 weeks with an accuracy of 99.99%. From the information given, you have tested multiple times and have received negative test results each time. In this scenario, test results would be considered conclusive. In regards to the symptoms you are feeling, HIV symptoms often mirror other viral infections or can be explained due to other things.

Recommendation: No need for HIV test with the scenario provided, refer to a physician for other health related questions
