In India, the ritual of kundli matching is performed prior to the “big day,” correct? Kundli matching is a type of horoscope matching that will determine your compatibility for the rest of your life. Along with your partner’s financial situation, you should be aware of his or her health status. That is because both physical health and mental health cannot be jeopardized under any circumstances.
A large number of people still do not know the essentiality of undergoing certain tests before marriage, but for our own health it is important to have a medical test before marriage. Apart from STI and HIV, there are also other diseases that can be passed through genetics. This is why it is important to understand each other’s health. Here is a list of tests which you should undergo before marriage.
- Thalassemia: Thalassemia is a life-long genetic condition that is passed down from parent to child by genetics. This disorder is caused by a mutation occurring in the genes that generate hemoglobin. Thalassemia is a condition in which your body does not produce enough hemoglobin (A protein found in red blood cells). Minor thalassemia develops when you inherit gene mutation though one parent, and the major form develops when you inherit mutated genes from both of your parents. Major thalassemia, in general, can be extremely severe.
- Infertility test: Infertility is indeed a significant matter that has a massive effect on both a person's physical and mental health. Fertility issues can affect both men and women. There are a large number of couples dealing with pregnancy complications. Undergoing infertility tests can predict the likelihood of pregnancy complications in advance, and allow you to receive appropriate treatment to alleviate the problem.
- STD test: Sexually transmitted disease is the result of a sexually transmitted infection that occurs as a result of sexual activity. Cancer, brain damage, infertility, birth defects are all possible outcomes of sexually transmitted disease. This test aids in the detection of HIV, syphilis, gonorrhea and chlamydia. So, if you are sexually active or intending to marry, you should get an STD test first.
- HIV screening test: The human immunodeficiency virus or HIV weakens our immune system’s capability to combat bacterias. Untreated HIV leads directly to AIDS as a result of an impaired immune system. There are many different types of HIV tests, but the majority of them look for the antibody or antigen in the serum sample.
So, those are all the important pre-marriage medical tests. Look on the internet for a premarital test to find out the best, most appropriate premarital test package for you and your partner.
