Hormone Inhibin A
What To Think About
- The maternal quad screen looks for possible problems in your developing baby (fetus). You can have an ultrasound if your quad screen is abnormal. If an ultrasound cannot find the cause of the abnormal results, an amniocentesis may be recommended. For more information, see the topic Reference Fetal Ultrasound or Reference Amniocentesis.
- If abnormal levels of inhibin A are found, talk with your doctor or a Reference genetic counselor Opens New Window. The test results can be abnormal, even when nothing is wrong.
- The level of inhibin A in the blood is often used in a maternal serum triple or quadruple screening test. For more information, see the topic Reference Triple or Quad Screening for Birth Defects.
