Inconclusive MaterniT21 Gender Testing

Hi, anyone else experience inconclusive gender testing via MaterniT21 at 14 weeks and/or at 17 weeks? I’ve had my blood drawn twice and no results each time. Should I be concerned?

    Though very rare intersex children are born (sorry but not everyone is born male or female some are born both).  Honestly, wait for your AS in a couple of weeks they may be able to tell if there is a penis or not.  
  • What was the percentage of fetal cells found in your blood samples? If that's too low, I believe it can be difficult to determine baby's sex.

  • @harpseal135 Why are you sorry some people are born intersex?

    She’s not sorry. It’s an expression, as in, “nature isn’t perfect and not everyone gets a perfect XX or XY baby.” It’s a real possibility.

    This - sorry to people in society who feel that everyone is born male or female.  Not everyone is despite what closed minded people think.

    Ohhhh, okay, so like: “sorry, but the point is that your attitude is unnecessarily combative?” Like, sarcasm? You’re doing sarcasm?

    Just because someone has questions doesn’t mean they’re ignorant or closed-minded.

    Yeah not sure why some people on here are so rude it’s just insane 🙄 just because OP asked asked a legit question that, turns out, actually has nothing to do with just sex chromosome differences. anyways, OP, an inconclusive result is due to insufficient fetal fraction typically  meaning they aren’t really picking up much placental dna in your blood sample (doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with baby this is just normal in some people). Could also be technical error on the lab side but if you’ve had this performed twice I would guess that to be unlikely. If there was a sex chromosome anomaly that they could see as some posters are suggesting, they would report that and not just say “inconclusive.”

    PPS. people with klinefelters syndrome, Turner syndrome and XYY are NOT intersex, and those are really the only sex chromosome disorders detected by this particular test. You wouldn’t even be able to detect most types of differences of sexual development with this test (and the result would just say normal, not inconclusive).
