Answer: Hello mother, A triple test checks levels of the following markers in the mother's blood - 1.Alphafoetoprotein(afp) 2.Human chorionic gonadotropin(hcg) 3.unconjugated estriol(E3) Based on the levels of these 3 markers, we can diagnose 1.Down's syndrome 2.Edward's syndrome 3.neural tube defects (spina bifida) 4.multiple pregnancies (twins) 5.other chromosomal abnormalities This test is usually done during 16-18th weeks. If the result shows' low risk 'then the test is negative. If the result shows' high risk 'then the test is positive. Don't worry most of the the pregnancies are low risk. Even if test shows' high risk ', it does not compulsarily mean the baby is affected. Incase of high risk result, further tests such as amniocentesis or chorionic villi sampling is done to confirm the diagnosis. Take care. Enjoy your pregnancy 🤰 ☺ Dr. Shaheen
