Downs Screening
Hi Doc

My Gynae sent me for a Downs Screening test at 13 weeks. Should this test be done around about this time or should it have been done further on in the pregnancy.

Test results was clear.

Please Advise

Regards
LoLo

The nuchal translucency test for Down's is done at 13 weeks. This is sometimes combined with blood tests.
