CVS (Chorionic Villus Sample)

A CVS (Chorionic Villus Sample) can be used to determine paternity during pregnancy.

The paternity of your unborn child may be in question. You need answers today rather than waiting until after the birth of your child. Luckily these days you can get a prenatal DNA test. There is no need to wait.

There are also a variety of prenatal DNA tests to choose from. CVS is just one type. Call us at 800-985-2749 or visit www.prenatalDNAlab.com and fill out the online form.

The CVS (Chorionic Villus Sample) is done between the 10th to 12th weeks of gestation. The CVS involves taking a sample of the chorionic villi from the placenta. It shares the same genetic information as the fetus so valuable information can be gleaned from it.


The CVS collects larger samples and gives faster results than some of the14 other prenatal DNA tests. It is relatively safe. There are two ways of collecting samples, transcervical (through the cervical) and transabdominal (through the abdomen). The transcervical method is done most often. The transabdominal method is similar to the amniocentesis.

Though valuable information can be gained from this paternity DNA test there are several risks involved. There is a 1 in 100 risk of miscarriage in clients that have had a CVS DNA test. Other possible risks are a small chance of cramping and vaginal bleeding, uterine infection and Rh sensitization.

Results of the CVS are ready in up to 5 days. Now there is no need to wait. Contact us today via our online form at www.prenatalDNAlab.com or by calling 800-985-2749 for a free consultation.
