Thank you for your help best regards norbi

Answer: 

Hi Norbert,
HIV testing (with any type of test-- including Rapid Testing) is considered conclusive anytime after 84 days (12 weeks) post exposure. 
 
Your negative test results at 121 and 183 days are conclusive and you do not need to test anymore.
 
Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any other questions or concerns,
All the best,
Monica
