take you hubby with you ...to be sure that we are sure to be assured to be sure
that you are a sechi and perhaps your hubby a nonnie ...+ - I think so, but because of the testresults, as I wrote it to you in one of my mails, it could be that he only shows up now likly a nonnie but is in principe a sechi ....in nature all can be ...but I don't want to do the same error I did once...and thus Peter was obliged to correct me ........hmmmm  


p.s.

yessss here once our Madl Heidi was right, you can test people on that behalf only aproximatly, to be sure to 1000000 %...go for the bloodtest , or spittest.....
I can obviously see for all the parameters, but in case of having done any kinds of
therapies before which might swift your metabolisme... it becomes a bit more difficult, the same in cases of candidose or hypothyriose.......
and as you know, I don't want to give false  inputs nor results .

I sent mine last Saturday and I recall the instructions indicating the sample must be shipped within 72 hours of collecting it.  I bet you're okay with fridging it although I didn't do that ... I spit & shipped!

I shipped mine on Monday after freezing it over the weekend.  It took me one hour to fill 5 mls.  I wasn't suppose to get any foam in the tube.  Quite impossible it seemed.  I guess that's why it took so long.  Glad that's over.

So I'm done  . Of course my mouth was dry out of sheer excitement. Smelled on a lemon, a bottle of tart pickles, no go . Then I induced yawns, which brought on the saliva . 15 minutes and I was done spitting! Now I'm on my way to the local NAP to drop off the sample. It takes about 2 weeks for the results, no?

Phew...

What I would like to know is: How do you ship the saliva for testing?
Do I have to take it to a special place, or package it in some "bio-hazard" packaging or something?
Is the shipping charge expensive?

I'm pretty ignorant about all this.
I'm about to order my kit, but now all these posts have me wondering...

accidental,

All you have to do is pay for the test. †NAP sends everything to you, and the return baggy is pre-paid.

There is a little, clear plastic vial for you to put 3 mm of drool in, after you have not had anything to eat or drink (other than water) for 30 minutes. †Then, 5 minutes before you drool in the vial, you have to swish out your mouth with plain water. †After 5 minutes, you then drool in the cup, taking care to not put in foamy, bubbly saliva, and then you're set.

You have to take care to handle the vial so you don't touch anything but the outsides, and then you write all the requested information on the vial's label and on the slip you include with the vial. †Then you tear off the identification number strip and keep it so you can track down your test results later. †

Then you put it in the enclosed plastic bag and drive over to the offices of whatever courier has been pre-paid for by NAP. †It takes upwards of a week, week and a half to get your results, and I recommend choosing the option of getting your results online, rather than by phone.

Finally, I would probably do the test right at the courier office, just because that keeps it fresher. †Take some water along with you for the swishing, too.

I did the test in July, and the results were available in two days. †I guess it was a slow time of year or something.

That's all there is to it, really. †And this method of determining your secretor status is a lot better than the previous method, which required a spinal tap with a wide-gauge needle bore and a three-hour, colorectal scraping with a device that looks like a tiny garden rake on the end of a steel chain.

Just kidding.

OMG!  I know!!!!  No foam??? How the heck to you prevent getting ANY foam in the vial?    It took me about an hour to fill 5 mls as well.  I thought it would take a few minutes....not!   They said at least 3 ml is required, but I figured more is probably better since a little foam did get in there!

The foam will not mess up the test.  They just want to make sure they have enough saliva, so they want to make sure you don't fill it up with foam.  If you got 5 mil of saliva in the tube you have nothing to worry about.

the foam rises to the top, if you're patient
also, cookbooks with great pictures or googling images of your favorite foods helps things go alot faster - I had a dry mouth, too, til I thought of googling sushi!

More questions I thought about...
Is the package of saliva we're sending very time sensitive?
How many hours between spitting and the arrival to the lab
is acceptable?

And can we take it to be mailed from a location, such as
Kinko's for example, to be mailed off? Or does it have
to be directly to the local main headquarters of the
courier?
What company is usually used to the shipping?
UPS? Fedex? etc....

All that info is contained in the pkg of test material, when you get it. I dropped mine off at some local all-purpose shipping store, the kind that deals with several major shipping companies. I think the company in my materials was DHL.

Oh, fooie, I just realized I have to fix the clock setting here. Off to fiddle with the computer...

Yes, it's DHL.  I took mine to the local Office Max who also is a shipping agent for DHL.

KK - good to know it's okay if a little foam was in it!

ctconservative - you're in good company in the "worry" department - must be an A thing!  (Deep breathing helps!!)

I'm nervous, but I can do this!
