Prenatal HIV Testing
At Labcorp on Monday,I was sent for a total of three tests.....something that began with a C...don't remember what that was exactly, a Cystic Fibrosis test, and of course, HIV...well, the lady tech there told me that test results should only take a couple of days apart from the Cystic Fibrosis screen, since that takes 2 weeks...I got my blood drawn on Monday early afternoon. I called Labcorp this morning and asked about my testing...They said that the first 2 tests are ready and complete and that the Cystic Fibrosis was the only one they are waiting for. My question is this.....If for some reason the HIV test would have some back positive wouldn't they have sent it away for another definitive screen, a western blot, before they actually had the actual test result?I called them and asked them if everything was ok and of course they said they couldn't release that info over the phone, that's fine...I then called my OB and they haven't gotten anything back and they said that even though 2 of the tests are ready, they don't get a report from Labcorp till the Cystic Fibrosis test comes back too...They said they don't like to get tests in pieces or something like that....Anyway...should I be happy that the HIV test was completed so quickly?I'm just looking for any type of comfort right now...I am scared out of my wits!I would think that if my test came back positive for something like HIV that they would send that directly over to my OB because they don't want you out there infecting others but I may be wrong in that assumption?Help Please!!!!!!!!
