Preparing you for the miracle of life - we ensure a healthy beginning
We understand that starting a family is an exciting journey, and we’re here to support you in every leap you make. One of the stepping stones in preparing for pregnancy is a preconception check. This comprehensive evaluation of your reproductive health helps identify potential issues that impact your ability to conceive and carry a healthy pregnancy. We offer state-of-the-art preconception checks tailored to your unique needs.
Some of our gynaecology clinic services offer for preconception checks include:
We provide counselling on how to improve your overall health before getting pregnant. It involves discussing your family history, medical history, lifestyle choices and risk factors.
Our gynaecologist performs a pelvic exam to check for abnormalities and conducts a Pap smear to screen for cervical cancer. They gather blood tests to check for sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
If you have a family history of genetic abnormalities, our gynaecologists recommend genetic testing to assess your risk of passing on these to your baby.
Our gynaecologist recommends that you get certain vaccinations, such as the rubella vaccine, to protect your baby from potential harm.
We provide recommendations on lifestyle changes, like improving your diet, exercising regularly and avoiding harmful substances like tobacco and alcohol.
Our gynaecologists perform fertility tests to assess your ovarian function and determine the health issues that may affect your ability to conceive.
Our experienced gynaecologists will take the time to get to know you, your medical history and your goals for starting a family. They will perform a thorough physical examination and necessary lab tests, including hormone levels and genetic screening. Our preconception check encompasses a discussion of lifestyle factors that can affect fertility, like diet, exercise and stress management. We are here to answer your questions, address your concerns and guide you to a successful pregnancy.
A preconception check is a comprehensive evaluation of your reproductive health before attempting to conceive. It helps identify systemic diseases or lifestyle factors that affect a woman’s ability to carry a pregnancy.
A preconception check typically includes a detailed medical history review, a physical exam, blood tests and imaging tests. Your healthcare provider recommends genetic testing or immunisations depending on your age, medical history and risk factors.
You can schedule a preconception check at least three months before you plan to conceive. It allows time for necessary medical interventions or lifestyle changes to increase your chances of a successful pregnancy.
Any woman who plans to conceive should consider a preconception check, especially if she has underlying medical conditions or lifestyle factors that may affect her fertility or pregnancy outcomes. It includes women with a history of infertility, chronic diseases, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, or those taking medications that may affect fertility.
The fertility profile includes tests like ovarian reserve testing, hormone level testing and imaging tests like ultrasound to assess the ovaries, uterus and fallopian tubes.
