5 Important Medical Tests Before Marriage

Important medical test(s) before marriage? Before saying “I do I do” or take that slow, almost-rhythmic walk down the aisle with the love of your life, there are medical tests or facts about him or her you must have known and be willing to live with.

However, we list five medical tests or examinations that couples must have gone through and discussed properly before making up their minds to either walk away or carry on with that walk down the aisle.

I beg you in the name of God, before carrying out the tests below, make sure that your husband or wife to be has no MENTAL ISSUE. Honestly, it’s FRUSTRATING to live with a MENTAL DERAILED PERSON.

HIV Test

HIV/AIDS is a notoriously scary infection and the sheer number of deaths it causes makes it a no-brainer for couples to check for its presence in each other.

It always makes sense to know what you are getting into before getting rudely shocked when you’re already in it.

  1. Genotype Test

This test will tell whether one or both partners are sicklers (SS), carriers of the sickle cell trait (AS) or whether their genotype is normal (AA).

Such is the importance of this test that even without being told, couples have been known to take the initiative of finding out for themselves.

And where there are couples who are too careless to check, marriage counselors have been known to mandate it for anyone who wants to marry.

  1. Blood Group Test

Refusing to subject themselves to this test means couples carelessly run the risk of a condition called hemolytic disease of the newborn which, causes stillbirths and miscarriages.

Knowing your partner’s blood group can prove useful in saving his or her life during an emergency.

  1. Test For STDs

This may sound extreme and appear like the whole point of these medical examinations is being overstretched but that’s not the case.

This is because infections like gonorrhea, if left untreated can grow out of hands and lead to infertility in the woman; causing strains and other issues in the marriage. ALSO READ: Blood Loss During Menstruation: Causes, Symptoms And Treatment Of Menorrhagia

  1. Fertility Test Index

This one is done to be sure of the fertility of both the husband and the wife.

According to health practitioners, fertility problems are usually not detected by couples until about two or more years after marriage and unsuccessful trials at conceiving.

So it is important for the test to be done as it profiles the reproductive hormones in both partners: semen analysis is carried out on the man and ovulation tested in the woman.

Couples who intend to not have kids may need not worry about this one though.

Important medical test(s) before marriage? Wish you success as you go through these tests in order to validate your health status towards getting married.
