Ashkenazi Jewish Genetic Panel (AJGP) - Why Not Be Tested?
There may be reasons you would
choose not to have the carrier tests.
- You are already pregnant and the results will
not affect your decision to continue your pregnancy.
- Carrier tests
are expensive. You may decide not to have the tests if your insurance does not
pay for it.
- The tests are not 100% accurate. There is a small
chance that you are a carrier even if the results are normal (false-negative).
