    Should I still get one more test?

    I got a 3rd generation HIV test at 12 weeks and 15 weeks and the result I got was Nonreactive because of an MSM last April. (I think I saw condoms being used) It is now 9 months past my encounter and 6 months past my last test. Should I still get one more test just to be sure? (I only had one encounter)
