Re: Non Invasive Prenatal Test

We are in the exact same situation as you are - considering whether to do the NIPT or not. A week or so ago our doctor determined that we are at low risk and advised us not to spend so much money for such a test (but we still haven't completely ruled out doing it). He said the problem with NIPT is it will still not give us certainty (as you very well know the only certain test is the invasive one).

The doctor said if the risk was low NIPT is very unlikely to bring anything and it costs a lot, if the risk is higher then it's definitely worth doing it.

The results are more than 99% accurate.
Actually that's just a marketing thingy.. it's lower than that. Much lower.
