What tests are there for HIV?

There are various tests for HIV that you can purchase and use at home. Always go to a healthcare provider for follow-up testing if a home test is positive. Tests include nucleic acid tests, antigen/antibody tests, and antibody tests (the most common at-home tests). All of these tests are generally accurate but may not be able to detect the virus until a period of time after the infection occurs.
