The myLAB Box Process: How Long Do STD Tests Take to Come Back?
How long do STD tests take to come back from the clinic? Better yet, have you ever wondered how long do your test sample takes to get to the lab? You may not have considered this second option, but we’ll let you know why you should!
At home testing provides the same lab-certified results in just a matter of days.
How Long Do STD Tests Take to Come Back From the Clinic?
Going to a clinic or medical facility is a great option… but it takes time. Sometimes it takes a lot of time. Often, waiting in line at a clinic can take hours. Following your appointment, after giving your sample and having an awkward conversation with the doctor, you will still need to wait. After all, most STD test samples need to be sent to a lab for evaluation. This is when the answer for “How long do STD tests take to come back from the clinic,” gets a bit muddied. You see, some people may never get an answer at all.
It’s sad but true. Many clinics have a standard policy to only inform a patient if their results are positive. This means that, even if your results are negative, you may be left waiting for days without ever getting a phone call to notify you. This is the way of the past. Gone are the days when you have to spend your time rearranging your schedule only to find yourself sitting in a waiting room. Say goodbye to mandatory follow-up visits or waiting for a phone call that may never come.
