Is it possible to get same day STD results?

Most STD results take 3-5 days. 

Our partners above stipulate that STD results can be made available within 1-3 days which is impressive. 

As these companies are walk in labs, it is very possible that they can provide faster results than most doctors who will need to send samples off to be analyzed, review the results themselves and then call you back. 

Do STDs show up right away on tests?

The average incubation period for common STDs is 2-3 weeks. Some common STDs such as syphilis, chlamydia and gonorrhea may take mere days to show up on an STD test. 

HIV may take 3 months to show up on a test according to Planned Parenthood. . 

How long does it take to get STD results back?

STD results can take anywhere between 1 day to 2 weeks to come back from the lab. 

It depends on the type of test you are taking, your current health status and where you are getting tested.
