Brief Answer:
can be sporadic mutation.

Detailed Answer:
Hello Dear. I understand your concerns very well .

Trisomy 21 is a sporadic mutation and can occur at any age, Although chances are increased after 30 years of age. It is more common in patients treated for infertility than spontaneous conception. It is mandatory in your case to undergo amniocentesis which is a very safe procedure under experienced hands.

does amniocentesis tell accurate result?
When will i get reports for it?
Does FISH technique procedure in amniocentesis tell whether my baby has down syndrome or not?
Answered by Dr. Manisha Jain 14 hours later
Brief Answer:
Confirmatory test

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, sorry for the delay in response
Yes FISH test is very specific and will tell you exactly if Down syndrome is present or not.
You will get the report in 5-7 days most likely but depends on the lab so ask the lab for the report delivery date.
The risk seems high by the report but seeing your age I expect FISH result to be normal
Wish you all the best
