No, there isn’t any such prenatal screening test available. Autism spectrum disorder is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterised by persistent deficits in communication and interaction, and certain repeated patterns of behaviour or activities. ASD is more common amongst children with certain genetic conditions than in the general population. These include conditions lsuch as fragile X and Angelman syndrome for which there is screening available. However, the vast majority of children with autism spectrum disorder may not have any clear identifiable genetic condition.
In general, abortions are safe with low complication rates when performed by a gynaecologist in a MOH-approved clinic or hospital. Common complications would include small amount of placental tissue remaining in the uterus (generally in the order of less than 5%). This is usually due to perhaps a small bit stuck in corner of the uterus and it would be unsafe to continue scraping at the area. This usually may pass out on its own or the gynaecologist may suggest some medication to expel it. Rarely it may require a second procedure.
