How long to get 15 week blood test results back?

im having the 15 week blood test to check for neuro tube defects this week and wondering how long it took for those of you that had it done to get the results. Waiting for test results is always so hard!

Re: How long to get 15 week blood test results back?

  • It's a 2 part blood test. So you have another draw several weeks later. The results aren't definative, you just get probability numbers. 

    DD1 born 5/24/10.

    Missed M/C at 14 wks Feb 2012.

    DD2 born 5/14/13.

    Missed M/C at 9 wks July 2015.

    Expecting someone new 4/17/17.
  • I don't know if it's standard, but it took about a week for my doc to call me with those results.  It's one of those screening tests where they usually don't tell you the results unless it's abnormal.

  • Mine took a week to get back.
  • Exactly one week.

  • If you did panorama or any of those it will be at least a week. If you are talking about the AFP test, I got my results the following day. That checks for spina bifida.

  • Mine was AFP only since I already had the NIPT earlier. Got it back yesterday, 3 days after my blood was drawn. It was faster than expected and all looks good!
