Chorionic Villus Sampling

Chorionic Villus Sampling test is done in the 10th to 12th week after the first day of the mother's last menstrual period.

The test is done by looking at cells taken from the chorionic membrane or placenta. No anaesthetic is required, and a test result is usually available in two to three weeks.

When the test is carried out by an obstetrician experienced in the technique, the risk of miscarriage related to the test is about 2 %.
