Yes definitely. Encopresis could be due to primary or secondary causes, but on both occasions emotion and behaviour is involved. Treatment of underlying constipation and anal spinster abnormalities need to be addressed in addition to psychology.

There is about a 0.5% or 1/200 risk of an amniocentesis test causing the loss of a pregnancy when it is performed between 16 and 22 weeks of gestation. Therefore the decision whether to proceed with this test will depend on the risk to benefit balance of the test in the individual case. For example if there is a substantial risk that the fetus is abnormal then the test can be used to give the mother the option to avoid the birth of a handicapped child. With the arrival of non-invasive prenatal tests (NIPT) now there will be much less need for amniocentesis in the future.
