Hello, folks. I am pregnant. This is my first pregnancy and I am 39 years old. My gynecologist suggests me to do amniocentesis. He says this is an excellent diagnostic procedure for excluding the existence of fetal anomalies. I wonder whether there are risks and what they are. Thank you in advance.

Hello. Amniocentesis is considered a safe procedure. However, every procedure has certain risks. There is a little chance of infection during this. Injury of fetus is also possible. There is even a little chance of miscarriage. However, we are talking about small chances. Benefits of this procedure are far greater than risks. You should discuss about the details with your gynecologist. I hope everything will be all right. Bye!
