Welcome to the forum. Thanks for your confidence in our services.

The sexual exposure described carriied little or no risk for HIV. First, it is unlikely your partner has HIV. Second, even if she did, with unprotected vaginal sex, the average transmission risk of HIV is once for ever 2,500 exposures. That's equivalent to having daily sex with infected women for 7 years before transmission of the virus might be likely. Of course it could happen the first time, but these statistics mean it is rare. In addition, oral sex has never been proved to transmit HIV mouth to penis (and only rarely penis to mouth), so that event was no risk. And you used a condom -- which you proved did not break -- for vaginal sex. 

In addition, the HIV test results you report are conclusive. They prove you did not catch HIV. The rapid blood tests are just as accurate as the laboratory based blood tests.

So all is well -- for sure you don't have HIV. Do your best to stop worrying about it.

FYI, the US FDA has no say in whether or not tests approved in the US can be shipped to other countries. If not available in labs in your country, that's the result of the laboratories' or your country's policies, not FDA's.

I hope these comments are helpful. Let me know if anything isn't clear.

It doesn't matter which blood test you had. All HIV blood tests, all generations, are 100% conclusive 3 months or more after exposure. 

Helicobacter pylori is unrelated to HIV. But you'll need antibiotic treatment for it, especially if you're having gastrointestinal symptoms.

This is obvious from the replies above. But if it helps to hear it again:  No, you don't need any more HIV tests.

That completes the two follow-up exchanges included with each question and so ends this thread.  I hope the discussion has been helpful.
