percent false negative

Hello, I brought one of your tests and took it at 5 weeks which was negative and then I took another one of your tests at 6 months and it was also negative, now I’m worried I was one of the 0.01 percent that received at false negative? What is the risk of this happening considering two negative results?

I'm so scared

Hi! I had a risky exposure (giving oral without ejaculation) about a year ago, then I started panicking and got tested at 3, 5, 6 and 7 months with all negative. Now I'm required to get tested for it for work at one year mark but I'm super super scared that it would go wrong. Do I have such a risk that my result would be different this time? I'm so scared that sometimes I get very suicidal.
