My wife was diagnosed with hiv 6yrs ago but never told me anything about it until about 4 days ago.I bought BioSure over Amazon and did the test and my result came back Negative . Is this normal?.. Do I need another test.

The short answer is "Yes, this is normal". HIV treatment is incredibly effective both at protecting the individual with HIV and their partners, to such an extent that, if treatment is adhered to, transmission risk is virtually eliminated. This is even true for transmission between mother to child during pregnancy. So you are at virtually no risk of getting HIV from your wife. In terms of general life risk, you are much more likely to be involved in a serious car accident than you are to contract HIV from your wife.
HIV is often a very difficult thing to deal with. People suffer greatly from perceived external stigma but more significantly from learned internalised stigma. So again I would imagine that it took a lot of courage for your wife to share this with you, especially after such a long time. But she has and that is a very good thing.
I hope that this information helps. If you feel you need any other information then please don't hesitate to contact me directly. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
