Preconception Health Check Up Package in Srikakulam
A preconception health checkup is a medical checkup that a woman should undergo before trying to conceive. The purpose of this checkup is to identify any health issues that may affect the chances of getting pregnant and to address any potential risks that may affect the health of the mother or the baby during pregnancy.
A preconception health checkup package typically includes a thorough physical examination, blood tests, and nutritional counselling. During the consultation, the doctor will typically review the woman's medical history, perform a physical exam, and may also ask the woman about her lifestyle habits, such as smoking, drinking alcohol, or using drugs, and provide guidance on how to modify these habits to promote a healthy pregnancy. The doctor may evaluate chronic health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, or thyroid disease that may affect fertility or pregnancy.
Blood tests check for sexually transmitted infections that tend to pass on to the baby during pregnancy or childbirth. Doctors will review medications that may need to be adjusted or changed to ensure safety during pregnancy. Preconception health check-up also determines nutritional deficiencies that may affect fertility or pregnancy, such as iron deficiency anemia or folic acid deficiency.
A preconception health checkup can help women identify and address potential health issues before becoming pregnant, improving the chances of a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. It is recommended that women schedule a preconception health checkup at least three months to a year before trying to conceive.
