Medical Tests Before You Marry Are A Must

You should get some medical testing done before your marriage so that you can stay healthy later in life. The tests are not mandatory. However, it is a good idea to do some tests for anemia, thalasemia, thyroid or sugar problems to check your general well-being. Tests can be individualized as per your medical history and your family history of health problems.

Premarital Screening

Pre-marital screening is a comprehensive group of tests for those who are planning to get married. Most individuals are not fully aware of the exact condition of their health, a person may look healthy, but he/she may have undetected health problems, or be a silent carrier of infectious or hereditary diseases. For couples considering marriage, pre-marital screening helps identify potential health problems and risks for themselves and also their offspring. Couples in a consanguineous marriage run the risk of having children with genetic birth defects and as such, it is vital for these couples to be screened in order to aid them to understand their genetics and help them take the necessary precautions or treatments.
