Question about amnio/cvs

(4 Posts)

I see that amnio is done at 16 wks and cvs can be done earlier. How does this sit with the rules on termination? (Should anyone go this route?). Is it right that after 14 weeks a termination involves labour being induced rather than a d and c type op?

Can anyone enlighten me?

It's a scary time for me........

Anyone? or should I post this somewhere else, if so what is the best board? Thanks.

there's an antenatal testing and choices board

where I am its after 12 weeks medical tx is the only option on NHS. You would need to go private for surgical tx. There is good reason for this. Medical tx far safer

Which means that even cvs done at 11 weeks might not give you time for surgical tx.

Cut off times do vary region to region I think

Thanks - I will look at the board.
