Listed in: Blood Test category.
Screening begins with a half-hour educational session, given by a genetic counselor. A small blood sample is then taken and sent to the laboratory where testing is performed. It takes about two weeks for the testing to be completed. When the results are returned, you will receive a letter that reports your carrier status. In addition, if one partner is found to be a carrier of a disease, you will also receive a telephone call from the genetic counselor to discuss the results. If both partners are found to be carriers of the same disease, you will be asked to schedule an appointment with the genetic counselor.
