seroconversion in High-Risk Seronegative Men

It is an old paper of 2005, Low Levels of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 DNA in High-Risk Seronegative Men, that describes several people who seroconverted many years after they are identified HIV DNA positive. These people are likely elite controllers, who suppress virus under an extreme low level that doesn't trigger anti-bodies. During the past 4 years, I have some antibody and RNA tests, and both negative, but I have a high CD8+DR percentage continually. I worry it is caused by an HIV exposure. How can I judge I'm not elite controller with prolonged seroconversion?

Oh boy. No. HIV is really straight forward. Yes or no on tests. If you have tested and got a negative and the test was in the appropriate time frame after the exposure, you don't have hiv. What was your exposure.
