Firstly, HIV infection may take from 10-15 years without showing any primary or chronic symptoms. You should retest the Hiv antigen test(ELISA) after 3 months of risk possible exposure as HIV in the blood takes a period known by the HIV window, the period between exposure and body immune response so any test you do before this period may be inaccurate.
