  • I've always gotten the results back during the visit.

  • if it was a urine test, then the results are take the same amount of time it took you to read the HPT.

    if you missed your period and got 2 +s, I say congrats! ;o)

  • If you took two at home tests and they were positive then your most likely pregnant. My doctor said the strips I was using at home were actually more sensitive than the tests they use in his office! They will do a urine test just like you do at home and you'll have the result in minutes.

  • hugsYour Doc should have told you unless he's really busy like mine and didn't think about telling you. I'm pretty sure your you are if you took two tests at home and they were POS you can't get a false pregnancy with home tests. :) Congrats Mamma !!!!!!!!!

  • Well if it was a blood test they prolly have to send it to a lab. This can take a couple of days before you get the results. A urine test is usually done in office and results should be immediate.

  • Every time I had a blood test done at my OB/GYN's office, I got the results during the same visit.
