Q:

pls suggest me I am so much confused whether I should go for amniocentesis test or NIPT.pls some one suggest me.and when should I go for it.

Why would you need these tests ? It is recommended for high risk situations where there is a genetic history or past case of birth defects or for women older than thirty five years of age. An amniocentesis test is an invasive test and carries a five percent risk of miscarriage hence if not needed should be avoided.

Dr. Payal M

you need to visit a centre which offers genetic testing and the associated and very important counselling service. please take your decisions after a good counselling session understanding every detail about the ifs and buts. These tests are carried out in a specific time period only which they will tell about.
