    PrivateMDLabs vs DiscountedLabs

    What have your experiences been?

    For me, PrivateMDLabs is cheaper, but DiscountedLabs gets my lab work back much faster.



    For the same panels, PrivateMDLabs took 5 days to get my blood work last time, and DiscountedLabs took 2. I got blood again on Tuesday at 8am, and they now told me it will take 10-14 days. I can't be waiting weeks to get results, I want them in 2 days max, so I think I'll be going with Discounted labs from now on.

    10-14 days is quite long. Did you run anything odd that they'd have to send out as opposed to running "in-house"?

    I use privatemdlabs and have been told 10-14 business days, but the panels I ordered were fairly extensive.
    Generally for total T, free T, CBC, CMP, E2, etc. it takes about 5-7 business days.

    Anyone know a lab that will actually show your test level when you're on cycle instead of just ">2000" or something like that?

    If you order "test-lcms" it'll give you a real number

    The sensitive test is most accurate. That's what I always order

    Sensitive. Some guys order ultrasensitve and then try to compare the values to sensitive, which doesn't really work. Pick one, sensitive or ultrasensitve and stick with it. I've always ordered sensitive E2

    To make sure your HCG is legit? Pregnancy test you buy OTC at drugstore.

    Haha nice thatll be interesting. And piss on it or shoot some HCG on it?

    I guess what I meant in my previous question was what test would I purchase to see how well the HCG is doing its job... other than obviously feeling my balls.
