What is considered low risk Nuchal?
Mar 2, 2009 5:41AM
Just a quickie really, we are going for a Nuchal scan and blood tests on Wednesday and just wondered what would be considered as a high risk or a low risk ratio? What should we book looking for?

I don't know but I am sure they will tell you whats high and low risk if you ask before the scan.
Whatever you do DON'T GOOGLE IT!!!
I have scared myself silly so many times after googling something, ask the experts and trust what they tell you.

If you get under 1 in 250 it is low, anything above is concidered high x

It depends upon your age. You need to be careful with the N/S results as its easy to get scared by them because numbers vary so much.
The figure given is relative to your age and the information gained in the scan and the blood test if you have it. If it is say 1 in 250, that doesn't mean that you have a 1 in 250 chance that the baby will be downs, it means that out of all women, of the same age as you, with the same measurements as you, 1 in 250 will have a downs baby.
Which is WAY smaller risk that 1 in 250.
Anyway, as Miss impatient said before, take the advice of the proffessionals. Good luck with it.

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
