Hi welcome to Healthcare Magic...
I think you need not worry, if your repeated testing for HIV ELISA has been negative for the last 3 years . Usually the test becomes positive after 6 month of sexual contact, so its very unlikely that u might have infected , since your tests have been persistantly negative for last 3 years . U can go for Western Blot for HIV Virus , which is a confirmatory test and rules out HIV infection totally.
Hope it helped you ...
