Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Actually the chances of you having a baby with downs syndrome at the age of 19 are extremely low. The chances are 1 in 150 which comes to a chance of less than 1%. Usually we dont see patients at the age of 19 give birth to babies with down syndrome. Secondly we can screen for downs syndrome and other abnormalities by doing amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling after 16-20 weeks of the pregnancy. This gives us AN ACCURATE answer regarding the presence or absence of downs syndrome in the baby. A blood test is inaccurate however the tests that i have mentioned are more accurate.

Do you have any more questions?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
