Ditto other ladies... the quad screen is simply not very accurate, and 5-15% of all women tested get false positives- elevated risk results despite no problem (depending on how properly implemented it was). It also only catches 85-90% of all cases of Downs. I also went straight to MaterniT21, it is almost as accurate as amnio and has barely any false positives for Downs. I am only 31 but was highly unimpressed with the quad screen statistics and did not want to go that route.
