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.
Dear Doctor, My problem is related to thyroid which is 5.95, is it a major problem, I am under medication now(thyronorm), and have more than 480 strands of hair fall everyday. Should i have a total health check-up done as i am confused is the hairfall only due to thyroid or something else. I am 28yrs old-unmarried girl. Kindly suggest me. Regards Meenakshi
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 ?
