5 medical tests you must not fail to do with your partner before marriage

Every time the issue of medical tests is mentioned, intending couples get apprehensive and scared because they don’t want to discover crazy realities about their spouse-to-be. The other reason is that people simply have skeletons they don’t want to let out, but isn’t that the idea of having these tests In the first place?

Marriage is a lifelong affair, and going into it without the facts can ruin the experience for one. You must have a proper knowledge of what/who you’re settling for. These are some tests I consider compulsory before you walk down the aisle.

  1. HIV AND OTHER STIs TEST

There are health conditions that have no cure, including HIV and Hepatitis B and C. You need to know your partner’s status so you’re equipped with knowledge of how to protect yourself in case they turn to be positive, and you want to marry them regardless. There are treatable ones like syphilis and gonorrhea, but you have to know so as to know how to protect yourself and minimize risks in marriage.

  1. BLOOD GROUP COMPATIBILITY TEST

Blood groups need to be compatible with each other to avoid problems during pregnancy like the Rhesus disease. It is a condition where antibodies in a pregnant woman’s blood destroy her baby’s blood cells. Women with rhesus negative blood group married to rhesus positive husbands have a greater chance of rhesus incompatibility where the growing fetus takes after the father in blood group causing this problem, and leading to intrauterine death and miscarriages.

  1. GENOTYPE COMPATIBILITY TEST

There are different genotypes, but not all of them are compatible. Marrying AS as and AS for instance can potentially be a problem when you have kids because it’s very likely you’ll make SS babies, which means they’ll suffer from Sickle Cell Anaemia. Doing this test will help you understand how to make the best decision for yourself.

  1. FERTILITY TEST

Of course, you want to know whether or not the person you’re marrying can have children. If they can’t, knowing early is a big plus because that’s how to make arrangements for adopting, etc, so as to avoid the future complications associated with an inability to conceive.

  1. GENETICS AND TERMINAL ILLNESS TEST

Early testing allows couples seek medical care before the medical conditions gets to its terminal stage. This test depends on the region and the common chronic/genetic condition seen in that society. However, this test should include screening for diabetes, test for hypertension, certain cancers kidney disease and test for thalassemia, amongst any others you feel need done.
