This paper focuses on the study of a Stochastic Model for predicting the seroconversion time of HIV transmission. As the immune capacities of an individual vary and also have its own resistance, the antigenic diversity threshold is different for different person. We propose a stochastic model to study the damage process acting on the immune system that is non- linear. The mean of seroconversion time of HIV and its variance are derived. A numerical example is given to illustrate the seroconversion times of HIV transmission.
