Knowing her lifestyle, she is sure about having contracted the infection from her husband. Her baby also runs a high risk of getting HIV infected. Three lives are now in danger. Her distraught parents now repent not urging for pre-marital health check up of the groom as suggested by their family doctor.

88% of marriages in India are arranged. Marriages are expected to last forever.  Kundlis of prospective bride and groom are matched to ensure the compatibility issues. Parents evaluate every little aspect that can affect their son’s or daughter’s married life. They spend a lot of time and money to find a perfect match for their progeny. But they tend to overlook or are unaware of the health aspect of the marriage. A comprehensive medical check-up for the prospective spouse is as important as matching kundlis. These tests not only include sexually transmitted diseases, but also illnesses like diabetes, thalassemia and thyroid dysfunction.

Why Pre Marriage Medical Testing?

Pre-marital testing is a set of comprehensive medical tests that can ensure better medical compatibility between partners. For couples considering marriage, pre-marital screening helps identify their own as well as each other’s potential health problems and risks for their future offspring. It is vital for couples to be screened to help them understand their medical status and help them take the necessary precautions or treatments.

Dr I. S. Gilada, President of AIDS Society of India emphasises, “Even if a partner tests positive for HIV, he/she can be rejected only as ‘medically unfit’ and won’t have to carry the stigma of a HIV/AIDS patient. Vice-verse, if they decide to go ahead with the marriage, it is with fullest knowledge and understanding, so they can’t blame anyone”.

Now a days, where people are so conscious about health and fitness, it becomes logical enough for both the partners to be ascertained before entering a relationship. LabsAdvisor.com has devised a pre – marital package consisting of all the tests that rule out the factors, deficiencies or diseases that may interfere with a happy married life. It also aids them to understand their genetics and help them take the necessary precautions or treatments.

Benefits of Pre Marriage Health Screening

  • Assess the positive health status of prospective bride and groom – Complete Blood Count (CBC), Complete Urine Analysis and Peripheral Blood Smears are done to check for normal and abnormal cells.
  • Detect the presence of any infectious diseases – Hepatitis B infection, HIV or Hepatitis C.
  • Identify if your partner-to-be is a carrier of genetic disorders which in turn helps in assessing the risk of having children with a severe form of disease. The couple can then choose whether to have an affected child. e.g. Thalassemia or Sickle Cell Disease.
  • To help them be better prepared when they plan to start family by knowing the thyroid level and blood group. Also, be aware of the fertility index of your partner.

Tests that a couple must get done before getting married

  1. Genotype: This test will reveal if you are a carrier on sickle-cell gene. Sickle cell anaemia is a hereditary disease caused by inheritance of sickle-cell gene. For a baby to be born with sickle cell anaemia, both parents must carry a sickle cell gene. So, this test is a very important test as if you and your partner both carry the sickle cell gene, you run a high risk of having a baby born with the serious disease.
  1. HIV and Other Sexually Transmitted Disease: Sexually transmitted diseases like HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and Syphilis are chronic and serious conditions which may put strain to a marriage. Many countries have laws that requires you to tell your partner about your HIV status before vowing in. The knowledge of the status of your partner-to-be helps you protect yourself or seek adequate medical care if your he/she turns out to be positive. It also gives you an option to make an informed decision to go ahead with the marriage. This will reduce the risk of infertility and miscarriages during marriage.
  1. Blood Group Testing: (ABO-RH) testing is important to screen out the RH-factor incompatibility and counsel women about the risks involved in pregnancy. If a woman who is RH Negative and a man who is RH Positive conceive a baby, there is the risk for a baby to have health problems. The baby growing inside the mother with RH-Negative blood may have RH-Positive blood, inherited from the father. This RH-factor incompatibility may cause intermingling of mother and baby’s blood resulting in the production of antibodies. These antibodies may destroy red blood cells of the baby. If known in advance the doctor can give anti Rh immune-globulin shots during her first pregnancy. The Rh immune-globulin shots work like a vaccine, which prevents the mother’s body from producing any dangerous Rh antibodies that can cause serious complications in the new-born or complicate any future pregnancies.
  1. Fertility Test: This is a test done to ascertain the fertility of a couple. More often, a couple is unaware that they have fertility problems until about 2 or more years of marriage and after unsuccessful trials at conceiving. The test is really important as fertility issues can be concluded earlier without going through any social or emotional trauma related to barrenness. Fertility test typically includes a semen analysis for the man to assess for male fertility and test for ovulation for the woman.
  1. Screening for Chronic Diseases: Chronic diseases like diabetes and thyroid function problems must be screened for. This is because they have negative effect on the outcome of a pregnancy. Any couple intending to marry must know their thyroid and diabetic status because of the association of these conditions with infertility and high-risk pregnancies.
  1. Thalassemia Test: This is a test done to detect the thalassemia gene in a couple. Thalassemia is an inherited blood disorder characterized by the production of big, abnormal haemoglobin. Because they are not normal, red blood cells which carry these haemoglobin are constantly destroyed, leading to anaemia. A thalassemia major patient may need regular blood transfusion. If both parents carry thalassemia gene, their child may have completely normal blood, or it may be a carrier or may have a severe thalassemia disease. In each pregnancy, there is 25% chance that their child will have normal blood, 50% chance that the child will be a thalassemia carrier and 25% chance that the child will have thalassemia major disease. With a test called thalassemia profile (HPLC), a couple can know whether they carry the trait and if they do, they can implore assisted reproductive technology to prevent their babies from inheriting the disease. Also, carrying a thalassemia trait is not a disease nor an illness. A thalassemia trait is passed down from parents to children. Being a trait carrier is not contagious.
