Fetal Fibronectin Test

Fetal Fibronectin can help evaluate a pregnant woman’s risk of preterm delivery.

The test result may be either positive or negative.

A positive fFN result is not very good at predicting whether a woman is experiencing preterm labor and delivery. It is associated with an increased risk for preterm delivery and with neonatal complications, but it will not tell a woman’s healthcare provider whether or not she will deliver early. Then a close monitor is needed for a symptomatic woman.

A negative fFN result is highly predictive that preterm delivery will not occur within the next 2 weeks.
