Let's acknowledge the changing times; discovering your partner's pre-existing health issues can be disheartening. The solution? Prenuptial screening for both men and women. While trust is crucial, testing provides added assurance.


Regardless of how long you’ve been together, it’s impossible to know all your partner’s health conditions. Often, individuals themselves are unaware of certain health issues, such as genetic disorders, reproductive issues, pre-diabetes, hypertension, or sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

Undergoing prenuptial screening doesn’t imply distrust. Instead, it’s about equipping both partners for their future. Most health issues are manageable; for instance, genetic disorders may require enhanced prenatal care and testing, but they don’t preclude marriage.

It’s essential to understand that prenuptial screening extends beyond STDs and doesn’t signify mistrust. Rather, it’s about fostering deeper understanding between partners, as most diagnosed conditions are manageable.

General Health Checkups and Genetic Counseling

Doctors typically commence with a comprehensive health checkup, screening for chronic conditions like diabetes, hypertension, and hypercholesterolemia. Detailed blood tests, including full blood counts, are conducted, along with determining blood groups and rhesus factor status.

Rare disorders like thalassemia may also be detected. Genetic counseling, integral to prenuptial screening, involves exploring the couple’s family history. Understanding familial health trends, such as asthma, heart disease, or cancers, is crucial.

Mental health screening may also be included to identify mood or personality disorders, aiding couples in preparing for their future together.

Screening for Sexually Transmitted Diseases

STD screening is typically focused, encompassing conditions like gonorrhea, syphilis, and chlamydial infection. Testing for viral infections like HIV, hepatitis B & C, and HPV is strongly recommended due to their significant impact and potential transmission risks.

Additionally, prenuptial screening often involves genetic testing to assess the risk of hereditary conditions and reproductive health screening to evaluate fertility and identify any issues that may affect family planning.

In summary, prenuptial screening is beneficial for preventing post-marital surprises and assessing genetic compatibility. It’s not solely about STDs but also about understanding genetic and health risks. Such screening fosters preparedness for couples’ future lives and may benefit future offspring by identifying genetic risks beforehand.


The advantages of prenuptial screening and counseling extend beyond marriage, potentially aiding in early diagnosis of health conditions. Despite being a taboo in many societies, undergoing such screening at our clinic ensures complete privacy, confidentiality, and data security.
