Best Answer

A "buccal swab" is used for DNA tests. This means that a cotton swab, similar to a Q-tip, is rubbed against the inside of the cheek, to collect cells for evaluation. While it is just as accurate as a blood test, this procedure is painless and non-invasive, making it a much more desirable test, particularly in the case of small children. Only the child and the male in question has to be tested.

Are HIV and STD tests the same?

No, the tests that look for HIV and those for other STD's are different. Each disease has its own test(s). HIV has two main tests that are routinely done to screen (i.e. to see if someone has the disease) for it: the ELISA and the Western Blot. Both tests are done (the ELISA is actually done twice) and must be positive before someone is diagnosed with HIV. If you have had testing for STD's but are not sure if you were tested for HIV you probably weren't tested for HIV. In most states HIV testing is done on an 'opt-in' basis. That means you must give written consent before you can be tested for HIV. There are a few states with 'opt-out' policies (you have to specifically refuse to be tested) but as a general rule if you didn't sign a consent form you weren't tested for HIV. If you're not sure ask whoever tested you whether or not you were tested for HIV.

its means you do not have an STD that was tested with pap, blood or urine testing. You may have other STIs that were not tested for or for which tests aren't available. Talk with your health care provider regarding the exact testing that was done, and what testing was not. (For instance, testing for herpes is usually not helpful unless a patient has a sore, and testing for HPV infection isn't available.)
