Question: Is triple marker test compulsory??
Answer: Dear this test is done to find your baby's DNA in your blood and check it for Down syndrome and two other genetic conditions, trisomy 18 and trisomy 13. You can have this done after 10 weeks of your pregnancy. Doctors don't recommend it for every woman, usually only those who have a high-risk pregnancy. So may be that is why your doctor is recommending it for you. Hope it helps.
