I am confused because whenever I read posts about SCREENING tests for down syndrome or other trisomies, most if not all women say that they are inaccurate and "always" wrong, false positives, etc. So IF they are wrong - then why do Drs. do them??? Also - aren't they just "screener" tests that give you an idea of whether or not you MAY be carrying a child with a disability?
Also - it is my understanding that there are tests that 100% - Amniothensis and the Chorionic villus sampling (CVS) test. The CVS test is done in first trimester and the Amnio is done in second, correct.
I guess I am a little unclear and wonder what is the TRUTH and why there are so many different anwers about the subject.
