Question:
I took Dicletin from about 8 wks to 16 wks. I'm just wondering if it would affect the results of my IPS Screening results?? This is my second pregnancy, which i sailed through and this one has now come back with a 1:375 ratio for Downs. I wasn't eating properly, throwing up and taking 1 tablet a day... could this make a difference??

Answer:
There is no evidence that having NVP and taking Diclectin would have any effect on your IPS screening results.
