How accurate is an HIV rapid test at 5 weeks post exposure?

I got a rapid test at week 4 after a possible exposure and again at week 5 and both tests were negative and I just want to know how accurate are my results? Do I need to retest at week 6?? And again at week 8 and 12?? I have read on the internet that a rapid test at week 6 is highly reliable so would a week from week 6 make any difference?? Would my negative results change at week 8/12??

HPV question

I am 24 and have had 2 sexual partners total. I have been with my boyfriend for 6 years (we both had only ever been intimate with each other). Since we had had no other partners and were committed, we stopped using condoms after a while (I'm on the pill, and we used the withdrawal method for additional protection). We broke up last year for about 7 months, during which I had intercourse with someone else (condoms were used each time). I am now back together with my boyfriend and my most recent pap was abnormal, and indicated that I have an HPV infection. My boyfriend insists that he was not intimate with anyone during our breakup, but it does not seem likely that I would contract HPV with condom use from the other partner. I thought that only the strains of HPV that cause warts could be contracted from skin-to-skin contact, not the types that can cause cervical cancer...? Can some please clarify? Also, should I start using condoms with my boyfriend if I did in fact get the virus from him, or does it not make a difference since I've already been exposed? Sorry for all the questions, and thanks so much!

I've had a single bump that looks like a pimple on my penis for several months. What could this be?

I'm a young, sexually active male. I've had about 7-8 different partners, always wearing a condom, but I have had them break before, and have had it break with a partner who to my knowledge has been promiscuous. I've had this bump that looks exactly like a pimple for a long time now; long enough to make me very nervous about it. It has turned into a whitehead and popped but never gone away completely. I'm fairly sanitary, but once in a while go a few days without showering. Could this be herpes? I live in Canada: should I go to my family doctor? If not, where do I go to get this checked?
