Hi Lady Alex,
The usual tests offered in a premarital counseling do include HIV but its optional at most places. You can voluntarily decline it. These are offered so that both the partners are safe from sexually transmitted diseases. Pregnancy tests are urine based mostly, and are not included in a premarital testing protocol. Hope that answers the question.
