Hi Peter

I am currently 6w 6d pregnant from donor eggs. My sister was my donor, she is only 26 but had an FSH of 22. I have read somewhere that people with high fsh are more prone to having a baby with downs, is this true? and how high is the risk?

Thanks

Nicky

Very slightly but nothing to worry about

and how high is the risk?

Slightly. You will be offered the triple test to assess Downs' risk shortly. I would suggest that you do this test which will then give you in indication of the actual risk. Overall I would say that you should be low risk.

Don't forget to read my umbilical cord blood stem information!!

Good luck!

Peter

Thanks
