Hi

I don’t know what type of sex you had but I can give you some information on testing window periods.

The window period is the time between when a person comes in contact with a sexually transmitted infection (STI) and when the STI will show up on a test.

All the infections you have listed would show up by 12 weeks. I don’t know your full medical or sexual history but if you only had that one exposure 12 weeks ago and all your tests are negative I would say there is no need to go for any more testing.

The best person to ask would be the person who did the test for you as they would know your medical history and what tests were done.

I am also a little confused as you said your exposure was on October 17, 2014 and that you were tested on November 11, 2014. This time period is 25 days.

Have a look at our “STIs at a glance” chart, it provides information on STI window periods.
