Answer: Hi! FTS is First Time Screening or Nuchal Translucency test which is done between 11-13 weeks of pregnancy, the test is a specialized ultrasound with your age to find out any down syndrome in the baby, it has been able to give 98% proper result of a baby with down syndrome or chromosomal abnormality. A false positive test is what you have in healthy pregnancies. Please be positive and go for the test. Wishing you the best.

Question: My doctor advised me to do NIPT TEST. Is it mandatory and safe? Please suggest.
Answer: Have you already had a NT scan and a double /triple marker test. Because generally this test is done as an alternate to amniocentesis because this doesn't involve the actual puncturing of the amniotic sachets and it is more non invasive than amniocentesis. If you nt scan and triple marker test haven been done please send us the reports so that we can tell you if this is needed.
