Does a modern HiV test include hiv2?
About This Group:

This support group is for those who are suffering from stress or anxiety associated with uncertain HIV status. HIV anxiety is extremely isolating for those who are going through it, as it is often very difficult to discuss with friends and family members. This group is provided for sufferers of HIV anxiety to discuss their fears in a supportive environment. Those with anxiety over non-HIV STDs are also welcome. For personal advice concerning HIV risk, testing, and prevention, please post in the HIV Prevention Community.

Does a modern HiV test include hiv2?

I'm not living in Africa right now,  which is known to have almost all the HIV2 viruses..
Also my HIV risk was not with a African person,
I know I'll be taking another HIV test soon in a month or 2 months to be sure.
Suddenly, I got anxiety that HIV 1 will be detected but not HIV 2.. should I be worried?

Most modern tests do test for hiv but tbh, most experts have not come across a case pf hiv 2, so i wouldnt be to concerned.
