Test Results
      #176743 - 02/23/06 11:24 AM

How long does it usually take to get HIV test results back? I did my HIV test at a lab near me and they told me my doctor should have them within 5-7 days. I am on day 7. I called the doctor's office and they still do not have the results. I am freaking out. How long did it take for you guys to get your results?

It took 2 days for me to get mine. Call and bitch, I did. The girl at the front desk told me 7-10 days, but the nurse that took my blood told me 2 days.I called and asked for a supervisor and they faxed my results right away. The squeaky wheel gets the grease!!!! God be with you.

I had that problem when I had my children tested only they lost their samples. I had to go back. Talk about walking on eggshells. If they have alot being tested it may take a little longer.

please be patient and remember your test most likely isnt the only one the lab is doing......Go do something to get your mind off it.
