NAT testing- please help!!!

Hello lovely ladies.....

It's been a while since I've been on. We decided on no more treatment last November after a failed cycle. Then 2 weeks ago my DH suddenly announced that he wanted to give it another go- he called it his mid life crisis!! Anyway, got my amh test done last week which came back an awful 2.2 (I'm only 35!) so we are aware that time is against us. The next hurdle is that during the compulsary bloods my husband's hepititis b antigen came back as positive. Although the clinic have said that in 99% of cases this is a false positive they have advised us to have NAT testing just to make sure. I'm due to start treatment in 10 dayys and am wondering if anyone has had any experience of this test, and most importantly how quickly do the results take to come back? Would really appreciate any hel

Hi morvc,
I have no idea about the length it takes for NAT tests, but I think the results will arrive before EC. I think it takes 2-3 weeks.
NAt is a test that directly detects the genetic material of the infecting organism or virus. NAT tests amplify and detect one or more of several target sequences located in specific virus genes. This process is different from traditional testing because it looks for the actual presence of viruses, while most other tests detect the presence of antibodies, which are the body's response to an infection and which take time to develop.
Hope I'm making sense!
Take care
