1. When will I know the answer after taking the test?
The test takes about one month to be analysed in a WADA-accredited laboratory.

(If there is such a requirement, the test is usually answered more quickly than usual).

The exact number of tests is not fixed, but depends on your sporting achievements and the lists of athletes to be tested by anti-doping organisations.
