How long did it take you to get your blood HCG levels test results back?

I'm going to call my doctor tomorrow morning and ask for her to fax some paperwork to the lab for a quantitive HCG test and then see if I can repeat it in 48 hours to make sure my levels are rising.

How long will it take to get the results back each time?

  • I had mine back the next day, but the results may have come in sooner.

  • It will usualy take within 72 hours for them to give you the results. They usualy will not give another blood test to check the levels 2 days later. You might be able to go back in a week but I doubt 2 days.

  • No Shelii they do them 2 days apart because HCG doubles every 48 hours.

    The test would be inaccurate if it was done much later than 48 hours.

    I want to make sure my HCG levels are doubling like they should be.
