The integrated test is a screening test done during pregnancy to find out the chance that a baby has certain birth defects, such as Down
syndrome. The test is done in two stages at
two different times during the pregnancy. You will get the results after the
tests in the second trimester are done.
The results of all these tests are reviewed to see if
levels are higher or lower than expected, and the results are reported after
the second stage.
