PATIENT INFORMATION SHEET (AMNIOCENTESIS)
Welcome to the Ten-Physician OB-GYN Centre. We offer excellent services and with the best physicians. This is a detailed description of the amniocentesis process as done at our centre. Before undergoing the test, it is quite important that you understand the whole procedure and what is required of you as a patient. Therefore, you are asked to read the information carefully before undergoing the test so that you are able to make a knowledgeable decision. In case you need any further clarifications or you have questions, kindly do not hesitate to inquire. Thank you for trusting in us and come again.
Amniocentesis is a check done on expectant women to cater information on the state of fetus. The test is commonly done to examine if the fetus has any hereditary disorders. For instance, the Down’s syndrome or any other types of genetic disorders there is. It is done at the last week of the fourth month or the first week of the fifth month of pregnancy. The test can also be done to tell the blood group of the fetus or if there are any infections in the fetus. When done at late stages in pregnancy, it is done to determine whether the fetus is ready for birth, for example, its adaptive nature to the outside world.
First and foremost, we usually carry out an ultrasound of the uterus. Using the ultrasound, we are able to see the placenta, the amniotic fluid and the fetus itself. The doctor then cleans the abdomen, carefully inserting a needle, using the ultrasound in guiding him to insert the needle in the amniotic fluid sac removing a small amount of the amniotic fluid. It might be a little uncomfortable, but not necessarily. The doctor might be required to repeat the procedure severally until he is certain he has enough fluid for the test. The fluid will then be taken to the lab for thorough testing.
There can be complications in some cases. Note that these are rare and they occur in rare cases. First, a patient might experience leaking of the amniotic fluid. It occurs in very small amounts and is supposed to stop in less than a week or so. If it does not stop on its own and it persists, the expectant woman has to come back for further checkups and monitoring. Secondly, there might be cases in which the fetus is injured. Also, it might cause infections to the fetus in cases where a mother has a continual infection such as HIV-AIDS. Finally, it might cause a miscarriage. These are rare cases, so feel free to talk to us about them and be frank enough in case you have any infections or chronic diseases so you do not put your baby at risk.
After the tests, you might experience discomforts, for instance, mild cramps or mild vaginal bleeding or amniotic leaking. It is quite normal and is expected to stop in a few days. However, if it doesn’t cease in a week or so, report back for medical advice. It is important that you stop some vigorous activities for a day or two after the test, like sex or other heavy tasks.
We normally give results in a span of one or two weeks, but ensure you are given a specific day to have your results before you leave the center.
Thank you. Help us to serve you better.
