Information about Pregnancy

If you are planning a pregnancy remember that the first thing to do is to meet your Gynaecologist and tell them about your plans and ask for advice regarding the following :

  • Fertility period
  • Preconception Folic acid 5mg tablets once daily.
  • Confirm whether you have received the Measles vaccine (MMR) in the past, if not take it now.
  • Preconception risk evaluation after taking a detailed history regarding family history of hereditary diseases or mental retardation in any family member.
  • Age related risk evaluation of Down's syndrome.
  • Screening for infections like HIV, HbSAg etc., for both husband and wife.
  • Screening for hereditary diseases like Thalassemia or Haemophilia.
  • Other basic tests to treat simple problems like anaemia or genital infections.
    Thus with a few of these points in mind, a couple now finds it easier to plan a pregnancy with lesser risk factors or at least risk factors that can be taken care of prior to pregnancy.
