Brief Answer:
You can go for the quadruple test

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
-Yes, you can go for quadruple test as you are not satisfied with the result of triple test.
- The cost differs from lab to lab. That can be one to two thousands higher than the cost of triple test.
- Usually the quadruple test is recommended between 15th to 22nd weeks. But the result will be more accurate between 16th to 18th weeks.
As you just crossed the 18th week, better to take the test now.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the answer, please give your review at the end of the discussion.
Take care.
