Does oral swabbing for HIV testing work? My health department only does this and I was just wondering if it's past the window periods and you turn up negative is it definite like a blood test?

Hi there, I have been on many websites doing my research on which test is fastest and most accurate for myself. The most accurate test is a RNA PCR HIV blood test but since you have past the "window period"; the normal antigen blood test should do but it can take up to a year for some individuals for the virus to develop. The swabbing test is not always accurate because sometimes you might have an undetectable amount of the virus.
