Ask an OB-GYN- What is a pre-pregnancy care checkup?

Ask an OB-GYN, Series I, Blog 1- What is a pre-pregnancy care checkup?

The goal of a pre-pregnancy checkup is to evaluate and discuss issues that may affect your pregnancy before you conceive. This can increase your chances of a normal healthy pregnancy and baby.  During this visit, your OB provider will ask about your diet, lifestyle habits, medications, personal and family health history and about past pregnancy issues you may have had.  If you are not up to date on your Papanicolaou test, also called a Pap test or Pap smear, this visit would be a good time to have one. This is a great tool to check for infections that could adversely affect your pregnancy or chances of becoming pregnant.  This visit should be scheduled anytime you are planning a pregnancy or have health issues and not preventing pregnancy.  Feel free to bring your partner, so their family health history can be discussed as well. –Dr. Douglas Lawson, Board-certified OB-GYN
