A positive result on a double marker test does not necessarily indicate a problem, but it does warrant further investigation. The double marker test is used to assess the risk of certain chromosomal abnormalities in the fetus. If the test shows a positive result, it means that there may be an increased risk for these abnormalities. However, it is important to remember that a positive result does not confirm the presence of any abnormality; it only indicates an increased likelihood. Further tests, such as an ultrasound or amniocentesis, may be recommended to provide more information and help make an accurate diagnosis. It is natural to feel concerned when receiving such news, but try not to panic as many women with positive results go on to have healthy babies. Discuss your concerns with your healthcare provider who can provide you with more specific information based on your individual situation.
