This is really confusing, but i believe in this modern world with adoption of westren culture we need premarital screening. safety is first. i do go fo premarietal counselling. it is not only of hiv, but also helps  in preventing  the congenital and hereditary disease being transmitted to the offsprings

what kind of premarital check-up are you talking about? In some countries govt has made it compulsory for people to undergo HIV testing before marriage. I'd say you may want to get a HIV test done before marriage. Havent heard of any other kind of test being of any value before marrying.

Alisa is a definite yes.you may want to check for other STDs and the blood group and the RH factor before marriage.

Hi! I am 38 weeks pregnant . My doctor says it is not necessary to check my cervix until I start having contractions. Is this standard ? My doctor also says I do not need another ultrasound . I only had one at 20 weeks. My sister insists that is not normal. What do you recommend ?
