OCD Suferrer Anxiety/Guilt/Panic On STD

Hi Friends,
I'm not sure if posting here would help me. My situation started a year ago around April 2018. Where I went to a massage place and it ended up on a intercourse but was a protected one. After that despite everyone keeps telling I'm -ve and did not contract the HIV virus I kept on testing until Dec 2018 and since it was about 8 months after my encounter I thought I was safe and tried to move on. But somehow the fear came back with 'what if....'since am going to get married in 2 weeks I went on to test again 2 days back which was a rapid test on alere determine combo and my doc said I'm having severe OCD and put me on sentraline medication. The test came out negative and I was really happy but only for 3 hrs after that the fear came back because the doctor during test he never used capilary tube but straight away swab the blood from my finger to the alere determine combo pad and I keep on thinking that I might infected my self. Even tough I know my doctor won't do anything to put a patient in danger but the thought keep on repeating. Whenever I think am safe let's move on this' what if' keeps coming back. Has anyone had the same problem
