At any pharmacy. I have got them at both CVS and Walgreens. I have used Home Access. They come in both 10 business days or 3 Business Days. The 3 day test is about $10.00 cheaper and the cost is well worth it. They even come with a little prestamped FedEx envelop in them. They do not test for HIV2, but HIV2 is so rare in the US, the CDC says that only 79 cases are in the US.

Home Access Express (three day results) is the only home test FDA approved so go that route. It does only test for HIV-1 , however, it is true that HIV-2 is extremely rare. Since the Home Access uses first generation ELISA testing, it is actually more likely to pick up HIV-2 anyway from what I have heard.
The test is very easy to do and will give you the peace of mind you are looking for.
