Justin, you need to contact where you had the test done to find out about the result. We don't have the means to get that information for you.

As far as your test result is concerned in terms of sexual activity, as long as you haven't had unprotected vaginal or anal intercourse you can expect to test negative.

Please clarify if you have any specific concerns.

well the problem is, is that they don't tell you any information unless it is positive.  I was just wondering how long it usually took to get the test back.

I would verify that they have the correct contact information for you, and if anything's wrong, they'll have procedures in place to notify you.  Other than that, no news is good news.

There is no flatout answer as to how long it takes to get test results. The procedures are different in different locations. When a Rapid test is done you can get the answer in 20 minutes or an hour. It's not unusual for some sites to take up to two weeks.

But it can often be much less time to wait for an answer. That's why I suggested you contact them and find out what their schedule is.

Good luck.
