Preparation for conception: analyzes and examinations of a future mother
Every woman dreams of becoming a mother, so we come to this issue with great responsibility.
If you and your husband decided that you are ready to become a parent, you need to take care of your health. Of course, sports, proper nutrition for conception, vitamins are important. We hope that you already know all this and put it into practice.
But it is still important to make sure that your body is ready for motherhood, and, therefore, it is necessary to pass all the tests and get tests from doctors.
If you have not already had a specialist and started your examination from scratch, you should visit the therapist first. He will examine you and give directions for a general urine test and a general blood test (if there are relatives with diabetes, you will have to donate blood and sugar). It is also necessary to make a biochemical blood test and determine the blood group and Rh factors of both spouses so that during pregnancy there is no Rhesus-conflict.
General analysis urine will enable doctors to assess the condition of the kidneys of a future mother, because during pregnancy, they will increase the load greatly.
General analysis blood will help to identify various diseases (for example, anemia), and will give an opportunity to cure them before conception, so that the medicines do not harm the baby.
Analysis blood sugar will tell you if you have a predisposition to the development of diabetes. If the tests indicate an increased sugar content, the expectant mother will most likely be observed in a specialized center.
If during the examination of the cervix the gynecologist discovered erosion, you should do colposcopy (examination under a microscope). Infections that are on this erosion can lead to infertility.
Also it is necessary to be reinsured and to make a coagulogramm and a hemostasiogram (features of coagulability of a blood). It is necessary to determine antibodies to phospholipids, chorionic gonadotropin and lupus anticoagulant are the main factors of miscarriage of babies.
If you have found at least one of these sexually transmitted infections, you need to be treated together with a partner. Only in this way will you secure a future child from their re-emergence during pregnancy.
You passed all the doctors, passed all the tests, corrected your weaknesses and are ready to conceive? Then start taking vitamin E and folic acid (2-3 months before conception), eat only healthy foods, go in for sports, walk a lot and love each other (you know what we mean).
Share your successes and experiences with other future parents on our forum. Good luck!
