Pre-marital Check

Pre-marital Check aims to help about-to-wed couples gain a better understanding of their own health. The female partner will be examined by the doctor. A pelvic ultrasound scan will be performed to check and see if the pelvic organs, such as the uterus and the ovaries, are healthy. Cervical cancer screening will be introduced and a cervical smear (Pap smear) test can be performed if appropriate. The male partner can consider a semen analysis to evaluate his fertility. The semen analysis offered by the Centre is performed by experienced technologists specialized in fertility assessment with reference to the World Health Organization (WHO) criteria, and includes a comprehensive assessment of the physical characteristics of the semen, semen volume, sperm concentration, sperm motility and progression, as well as morphology. Blood tests will be performed for the couple to see if there are any diseases that need to be treated. The issue of family planning will be discussed, including various contraceptive options. Couples who wish to delay childbearing will have an excellent opportunity to discuss fertility preservation options such as egg freezing with our doctors who are specialized in this area. The consultation also opens a window to discuss various vaccinations that are relevant to the couple, such as the HPV vaccine, the Rubella vaccine (or MMR vaccine), the Chickenpox vaccine and the Hepatitis B vaccine.
