HIV 1 and HIV 2 ?

I think the place I get tested tests for HIV 1, but not HIV 2, should I be worried? Is there a difference in the results? Are the antibodies different?

Were you even at risk for HIV 2. Do you live in Western Africa? Have you had a partner and had unprotected sex from Western Africa? If not then you don't have a concern.

Well my partner was from middle east who traveled a lot... and he was with several foreign people I bet, because we are in a very diverse area.
