Tips for Getting Your Test Results Quickly

Want to get your 23andme results back super quick? Mr. E and I got ours back in 12 days.

Here are the steps to take to get your 23andme test results faster:

1. Register your kit online.

2. Ship it back overnight instead of using their free USPS shipping label (first class mail could take 2 weeks). You can use the same mailing address.

3. Answer the health questionnaire online right away. It will seriously delay the start of analyzing your DNA unless you’ve answered those questions.

Thats it! Once they start analyzing the DNA, it usually only takes 7 days to complete the health information.

Good luck!
