Below are eight tests you should do before you sign your marriage certificate.
2. Hepatitis B
3. Hepatitis C
4. Other STI's
7. Fertility profile
8. Chronic medical conditions
Up to 50% of people with Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI's) do not know they are infected. So, first check if your partner has lifelong STI's like HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Herpes.
Then, check for curable STI's like gonorrhoea, syphilis, yeast infections & Chlamydia. Your next concern should be knowing your intending spouse genotype and rhesus compatibility.
For rhesus, you can either be rhesus positive or negative. If a Rhesus NEGATIVE lady marries a Rhesus POSITIVE man, there is a 50% chance their baby will be rhesus positive.
If care is not taken during pregnancy and childbirth, this could cause Haemolytic Disease of the Newborn. Next, fertility tests are crucial because most couples would like to have kids.
You should do at least these three tests to check fertility;
1. Seminal fluid analysis
2. Hormonal assay &
3. pelvic ultrasound scans
The scans will check the state of the internal reproductive organs. Also, check if your prospective spouse has any of the following chronic medical conditions;
2. High blood pressure
3. Kidney disease
4. Liver disease
Knowing this will enable you to seek medical assistance early enough and also make the needed lifestyle adjustments. It is always better to be on the safe side. However, that is the essence of this post.
No matter how mad you are in love with him/her, don't jump into signing that marriage certificate without knowing your partner's sexual health status!
