    Interesting, I have used them now for many tests, over a dozen times and have never had one problem in either getting the test or getting a copy of my results!

    I just wanted to give some food for thought on this subject. The first time I saw this thread, I thought 'wow, great, we could find out early.' We just went through another transfer on October 17th. I have been cramping ever since the transfer. Last week, I inquired about the cramping and my NC ordered a early BETA just to *see.* It was done 7dp5dt. The BETA was negative. By all means, this does not mean the transfer did not work. My NC said "It means nothing, we just wanted to see if anything showed up." However, it has made the 2ww worse especially since we have been through 2 failed transfers.

    This is just my opinion and everyone handles situations different. I am amazed by some of the surro's determination and positive faith on these boards! For some, this would not shake them. *If* you are like me, make sure you are pregnant or don't get a bloodtest! It's just too hard!!!! :#:

    I used healthtestsdirect.com with the last surrogacy......
    I did it on both cycles.....
    with the second one I was traveling in MT and it was great that I was able to do that there and still have the results emailed to me to read.

    I have been there quite a few times and never had any issues with them.

    I just went to the site and it gives me labs in CA that I can go to... It does ask for payment at the time I am ordering the test online... and the beta has gone up to 45 now... Does anyone know if CA is a state that I can go without using this site???

    I've used them for both surrogacies and haven't had a problem! My IF used them to get his HIV test(as did I) with no problems at all!!

    Has anyone tried this lately? If so, how soon did you get your results and do they fax them or can they email them?

    Thanks!

    I used health-tests-direct.com in March. I ordered a beta online, paid, printed the form out and went to Labcorp. When it was my turn to check in all they verified was my ID and noted it was prepaid.

    You set up your email and password to log back in to get results. I went in at 10am and my results were posted the next morning. It's a PDF and looks like a normal result page any Dr gets so it could be printed and faxed or even saved and emailed to whoever needs to see it.
