What happens if I get bad results with a chorionic biopsy?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 09/27/2018

If the chorionic villus analysis shows that the fetus is affected by some genetic malformation or abnormality, the woman or couple will have to decide whether to continue the pregnancy or perform a therapeutic abortion.

Depending on each case, the doctor may recommend amniocentesis at a later date to confirm the result.

However, it should be borne in mind that voluntary termination of pregnancy will be easier when it is done earlier.

Suggested for you: Invasive and Non-Invasive Prenatal Diagnostic Tests.
