is it possible to get the results of a blood pregnancy test in less that 20 min. or does it take longer to process?

Depends where: Doing the test itself is fast but unless your doctor is processing blood work in the office it probably is being referred out to an outside lab company. Doing a urine test is much faster and can detect pregnancy with a BHCG of > 20. This means it only misses pregnancy in the first few days after conception
