Down syndrome

Hi there,
My gynea told me my down syndrome test results were very high. She was not clear and sugessted another test between 16/18 wks. What does this mean. Shall I get a second opinion.
Do I need to be worried?

If the Down syndrome risk was high ( you would need to have an exact figure to know this), then the next step would be an amniocentesis. Phone your doctor and ask her for a more detailed explanation.

Best wishes
