What is pre-conceptional assessment and counseling?

Having a healthy, normal and successful pregnancy begins well before you have a positive result on a test. Caring for your health before you become pregnant helps you plan for a pregnancy. Preconception counseling is a visit with your healthcare provider, where you consider many prospects of pregnancy and design for a healthy pregnancy. This consultation should occur at least three months before you start seeking to get pregnant.

What to Expect During Your Pre-Conceptional Assessment and Counselling?

During the counselling session, your healthcare provider will review the following topics:

Family history: Your family history—and your companion’s family history—can give insight about any hereditary conditions or disorders that may be passed on to a minor. Understanding your medical history can aid your healthcare providers to treat you and your offspring in the future. This report may also tell your healthcare provider if they need to operate extra tests or watch for the progress of certain conditions during pregnancy. Specific parts of your family health record to share with your doctor could include a history of :

  • Hypertension (high blood pressure).
  • Diabetes.
  • Mental disorders.
  • Blindness.
  • Deafness.
  • Birth defects (congenital conditions).
  • Ethnic-related diseases (Tay-Sachs, sickle trait/sickle cell disease).
  • Twins or multiples.

Your general medical history: It is necessary for your provider to look at the whole picture of your health before pregnancy. During your interview, your caregiver will prefer to discuss:

  • Surgeries, medications or transfusions you may have had in the past.
  • Any current medical conditions.
  • Any allergies.
  • Any medications you may presently be taking.

Your OB/GYN history: During the analysis of your medical history, your doctor will quiz you about your OB/GYN history. Some STDs and vaginal infections can influence a woman’s ability to conceive. Your doctor may perform cervical cultures or blood tests to make sure there are no diseases that could cause issues during fertilization or pregnancy. Specific topics your provider may consider include:

  • Any previous pregnancies.
  • Your menstrual history.
  • Contraceptive use.
  • Any sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
  • Any history of known uterine irregularities.
  • Pap smears or any procedures for abnormal paps.
  • Vaginal infections.

Lifestyle: An active lifestyle is very critical during pregnancy. This encompasses a balanced and nutritious diet, exercise, and dropping any drug use and smoking, as well as vulnerability to any environmental hazards.

Vaccination: Your provider may need to revise or give you additional vaccinations before you become pregnant. Some of these vaccinations may involve time between when they are given to you and when you become pregnant. You should bring your vaccination records with you to your appointment.

What to Expect During the Procedure?

During preconception counseling, your provider may perform several tests. These analyses may include:

A physical exam: Your provider may perform a physical exam during your preconception appointment. This exam may require your caregiver:

  • Checking your lungs, heart, breasts, thyroid, and abdomen.
  • Doing a pelvic exam.
  • Checking your blood pressure.
  • Recording your weight.

 Lab tests: These tests are needed to find out various maladies and conditions. Lab tests may include:

  • Testing for rubella.
  • Testing for hepatitis.
  • Complete blood count (CBC).
  • A pap smear.
  • Diabetes screening.
  • Testing for thyroid issues.
  • Testing for HIV.

Your provider may also examine how to layout your menstrual cycles and when you ovulate each month. You may be handed out a prenatal vitamin with 400 to 800 micrograms of folic acid. You should commence taking this before you are pregnant. Your baby can benefit from a prenatal vitamin before you may even appreciate you are pregnant.

Your doctor may propose that both you and your partner go through genetic counseling before conceiving, specifically if you have a family past of particular genetic conditions. This process will add a lot of knowledge to your healthcare team that could be valuable during your pregnancy. Genetic counseling can also identify certain risk components that your physician will be able to discuss with you and plan for. You may likewise be assessed for specific conditions like Tay-Sachs or sickle trait/sickle cell disease. These conditions can be run down throughout families.

After the Counselling Sessions

Our doctors may provide you with plenty of recommendations for conception:

  • Losing weight.
  • Quitting smoking or consuming alcohol.
  • Not taking medicines that could be risky to the pregnancy
  • Updating your immunizations.
  • Taking recommended vitamins
  • Avoiding extra stress.
  • Seeing specialists for health issues before conceiving.
