How long until I get my STD test results?

Depends. Depends on what tests were done and where they were sent to be interpreted. Most tests, however, will be back for sure within a couple of days. Some may be sent out to an outside lab and take longer.
Longer if culture. If you were cultured (swabbed) for a test, the results may take an extra day or two longer than blood tests.

How long do STD test results come back in ontario? Tested aug 29, haven't heard back sept 9

Should be less. In us(oops, ontario, ca!) we get results back in three days, on average.

Lab tests are done in batches, so blood may sit for a while waiting for the batch to be completed before any testing is done on the entire batch. Culture specimens may take thre to five days for a result. Read more...

Offices are busy. And they have lots of patients to contact. They are not going to leave sensitive information like that (good or bad) on an answering machine. Most offices call back with both positive results and negative results. Call them back and somebody should be able to give you the message they were trying to give you. Read more...
