Brief Answer:
Late seroconversion practically is none...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Late seroconversion is noted theoretically. But in practical cases, I haven't seen late seroconversion for the last 15 years. So if all the test after 1.5 years returned negative results, then you need not be worried about seroconversion and HIV infection.

Hope this answered your question. Let me know if you need clarifications.
