Question: In quadruple test Trisomy 21 screening is positive. What is it mean? Tell me pla
Answer: Hello dear if the screening of trisomy 21 is normal meaning that there are chances that your baby has chromosomal or genetic problem. But this is not the final test if it is positive than doctors will ask you for another test known as amniothesis. To confirm if there is a problem. After that the doctor will tell you the final decision. see with the heavy heart I want to tell you that it is not easy to bring a special child in this world that is why the doctors do this test to tell you before hand about the babies mental health.
