In brief: 2nd trimester

The 'quad screen' is a screening test that detects levels of four different hormones/proteins in your body.
From these levels, your doctor can assess your risk for chromosomal problems/neural tube defects. This test is offered to pregnant women during the 2nd trimester from weeks 15-20.
