    When do triple/quad screen results come in?

    I was wondering how long it generally takes to get the triple screen or quad screening test results back. I had blood drawn for it yesterday and totally forgto to ask when th results would be in and if they would call me to tell me the results or if I would have to wait until my next appt for the results.

    Thanks ladies!

    Re: When do triple/quad screen results come in?

    This is the test that tells you your risk of your baby possibly having certain things. It isn't diagnostic. So it doesn't say positive to having downs or negative to having spina bifida or anything. It tells you the risk factor. So it doesn't really have false positive or false negatives or anything. It doesn't come up positive or negative. It gives you a risk factor (like 1 in 47 chance of this or 1 in 200 chance of that) that sort of thing. It then helps you decide if you want any of the diagnostic tests (like an amniocentesis), of which those can then have false positives.

    i just had the test done and was told to call in 10 days i am pleased i had the test done as i know if the results show my risk is very low my worries will be low to. of course if it is high i shall have an amnio and i trust whatever results that will give me 100% or if not there would be no point in having these tests at all. good luck i hope we both get low risk results.

    I opted not to have it done, too. Statistically, I am at "low risk" for a baby with any birth deffects. I'm young, my husband is young, and no genetic problems run in our family, etc. A high risk factor coming back would be a "false positive" since everything counter indicates that. And I wouldn't have an amnio anyway.

    We are probably low risk too...but there are some geentic birth defects in dh's family, but they probably cannot be passed through heredity. I am not sure that we would have an amnio either. But if there is a risk of spina bifida, I would want to know because that can be cured while in the womb through surgery.
