HARMONY PRENATAL TEST: ANTECIPA O CONHECIMENTO DO SEXO DO FETO

HARMONY PRENATAL TEST: ANTECIPA THE FETUS SEX KNOWLEDGE The Harmony Prenatal Test is a non-invasive prenatal screening test that has the highest detection rates (greater than 99%), being a 100% safe method, with total absence of risk for the baby and detection rates of the aneuploidies very close to those of diagnostic methods such as amniocentesis and chorionic villus biopsy It is available for all pregnant women from 10 weeks of gestation, excluding multiple pregnancies with more than 2 fetuses

In twin pregnancies, the test is not recommended in situations of suspected or confirmed miscarriage of one of the twins Recently, the Harmony PreNatal Test with X, Y has been added to the standard panel of the main trisomies, which, in addition to the trisomies 21, 18 and 13, also evaluates the number of copies that exist for both X and Y chromosomes information on fetal sex, as well as assessing the risk of aneuploidies related to sex chromosomes (XO, XXY, XXX, XYY, XXYY) It has a fetal sex determination rate greater than 99% Already the detection rate for aneuploidies related to sex chromosomes varies according to the condition

The Harmony Prenatal Test can be performed in single pregnancies obtained either naturally or by IVF (including donation of own or non-oocytes) and has also been validated for twin pregnancies However, there are some limitations, namely, that the result obtained is unique for both fetuses Only the standard Harmony test can be ordered (without X, Y) It is a safe test with excellent results and simple to perform, as it is performed from a maternal blood sample and has therefore been incorporated into routine clinical practice in the Pre-Natal Screening With the introduction of the Harmony Prenatal Test in Portugal, the Pre-Natal Screening has become simpler and more accurate, giving the pregnant and the attending physician more peace of mind and safety and the advantage of obtaining results sooner, which will allow a more informed decision to be made in good time
