Screening Test for Genetic Disease

Pregnancy needs quite some attention and tricks to take care of the baby when the baby is inside the womb. The tests to identify any genetic disorder is conducted between 10 to 13 weeks, that is, at the end of the first trimester. The genetic disorder can impact the life of the newborn.

Screening Test for Genetic Disease

The genetic disorder may arise in pregnancy due to family history, personal history, radiation, exposure to drugs or environmental injuries. Visit Dr. Smiti Women’s Clinic to get thorough advice and the tests. Our gynecologist will take a blood sample along with ultrasound to check for any genetic abnormalities. But if screening through blood appears a problem, then the specialist at our clinic will suggest Amniocentesis and Chorionic Villus Sampling.

Our clinic offers the most trusted results from experienced doctors. Diagnosis on time is important so that the corrective measures can be chosen.

If the blood sample does not reveal the correct test results, then Dr. Smiti at our clinic will suggest an Amniocentesis test. She will call the pregnant mother between the 15th and 20th weeks.

At our clinic, the doctor will take a thin needle to take out the amniotic fluid from your abdomen. She will remove a small amount of fluid from around the fetus. It will also help to check for genetic problems.

We take care while conducting the test but always make the patient aware that the test can involve a 1% risk of miscarriage. Though to prevent it, our expert will take all the necessary precautions.

The health conditions that the amniocentesis test helps to diagnose include:

1. Down Syndrome.
2. Cystic Fibrosis.
3. Other Genetic Disorders

The test helps to monitor the maturity of the fetal lungs.

We pray and work day &night to help every mother deliver a healthy child. But in some cases, we need to be extra cautious and hence we suggest an amniocentesis test. We will ask females in the following categories to take the test:

1. Women who are above the age of 35 and conceive a child.
2. Older woman.
3. When one child before was born with genetic defects.
4. When the pregnant female has had more than one miscarriage.
5. When a woman has delivered a stillborn child.

We will call a pregnant mother for Chorionic Villus Sampling between weeks 10 and 12.

Our lab expert under the guidance of Dr. Smiti will remove a small placenta for the CVS. The small piece of the placenta will be used for genetic testing.

The CVS test is done to check for any birth abnormalities. Dr. Smiti at our clinic makes the patient aware of the risks involved with the CVS testing. Some risks that may be involved are:

1. Infection: The test can trigger a uterine infection.
2. Rh Sensitization: The test can cause the baby’s blood cells to enter your body. If you haven’t developed the antibodies for the same, then it may lead to damage to the baby’s Red Blood Cells. Hence, we induce Rh Immune Globulin in the female’s body after CVS.
3. Miscarriage: Though the possibility is less, there are chances of one.
