Genetic Screening and Pregnancy

It is important to note that there is a difference between genetic screening and genetic testing. Genetic screening is carried out to determine whether a person is at risk of suffering from a particular condition, while genetic testing is done to determine whether the condition is present or not. A good example is when you have genetic screening done to check for a particular gene that causes a particular condition. If the gene is present, genetic testing is done to check whether you have the condition or not.
