Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

How are you doing? Let me start by saying that you and your baby are absolutely fine.

  • First of all, 31 years is not at all a risk factor. Only after 35 years, the risk of these genetic problems increases a lot, much more after 40 years. These factors are calculated using an age correlation.
  • In this report, the risk is mentioned as 1 in 675. Only if the risk is 1 in 250 or less, we need to worry. In your case there is no risk as per history and also the tests show the same.
  • So, just enjoy these days of pregnancy and keep following the medications you are following now.

Hope I have clarified your query. Do write back if there are any more queries. All the best.
