    Dear tutor1,

    The amnio increases the risk os miscarriage by quite a large margin. Since your OSCAR test came back as 'low-risk', don't do the amnio. I'm sure that's what your OBGYN would suggest too.

    The OSCAR test does not have positive or negative test results, it's not straightforward like that. If your risk ratio is 1:250 to 1:300 you are considered high risk and that's when an amnio is recommended. Anything like 1:301 and so on is considered low risk and no amnio is needed.

    The ratio changes with the age, so check your OBGYN's chart. That ratio I quoted above is for the age of 30.
