By taking the test, if you ask specifically, it is also possible to find out the gender of the child.
After receiving the results of the Harmony test, you can discuss further pregnancy care with your doctor.
The Harmony test does not examine partial trisomy, mosaicism, and translocation genetic differences. Some biological conditions may affect the accuracy of the test. Rarely, there may be few sex chromosome aberrations in donor eggs and twin pregnancies. In twin pregnancies, the boy result may refer to one or both foetuses, the girl result refers to the sex of both foetuses.
The test does not examine all possible trisomies. Some foetal trisomies present a low risk, or there may be non-trisomic foetal abnormalities that present a high risk. False negative and false positive results can occur. The Harmony test provides a risk estimate and does not make a diagnosis. The result should be evaluated with the results of other clinical tests.
If the result is high risk or a chromosomal abnormality is suspected, karyotyping of a foetal sample by amniocentesis is recommended.
