How good can the odds be when you're 41?

I'm booked in for the NT scan and blood test at the FMC next week and am considering my options if the risk is high.

BUT- how low could my risk be given my age (41) even if bloods and scan were good? I know my background risk is 1 in 80.

Is it likely I'm going to have to choose between CVS (risk but quick result) and Harmony (no risk but two week wait by which time it's too late for a surgical termination)?

Any advice appreciated....

The stats are useful rather than being 'shite'. They can help make a decision as to whether to seek further testing or not.

Not everyone wants to risk a mc by going direct to amnio/cvs.
