Pregnancy Test
It is generally recommended that you wait until the first day of your missed period to take a pregnancy test.
Amniocentesis
Amniocentesis is a diagnostic test, performed by sampling the amniotic fluid, that can identify genetic disorders and open neural tube defects.
CVS
Chorionic villus sampling (CVS) is a diagnostic test, performed by sampling the chorionic villi, that can identify chromosome abnormalities and other genetic disorders.
