Pregnancy is a journey that requires careful planning and attention. If you are considering falling pregnant, seeing a doctor for a check-up should be one of the top items on your to-do list. A preconception check-up is important because it helps you identify any potential health concerns that could affect your pregnancy and your baby’s health. When you see a doctor for a preconception check-up, they will review your medical history, perform a physical exam, and run some tests.

Some of the key areas that will be covered during the check-up include your reproductive health, immunization status, medical conditions, medication use, and lifestyle habits. Here are some reasons why it’s important to see a doctor for a preconception check-up before you fall pregnant:

1. Identify potential health risks – Your doctor can identify any potential health concerns that may affect your pregnancy, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and thyroid issues.

2. Optimize your health – A preconception check-up helps you optimize your health by addressing any existing health issues or adopting healthy lifestyle habits that promote a healthy pregnancy.

3. Address medication concerns – If you are taking any medication, your doctor can help you determine if it’s safe to continue taking it during pregnancy or suggest alternative treatments.

4. Discuss family planning – A preconception check-up provides an opportunity to discuss your family planning goals, including how long you plan to wait before trying to conceive, how many children you want, and any other factors that may impact your decision to have children.

5. Improve your chances of a healthy pregnancy – By addressing any potential health concerns before you fall pregnant, you increase your chances of having a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.

You also have the option to get a Full Genome Sequence done to check for any potential genetic problems that you and your partner may pass on to your children.
