Premarital Screening Test

The Premarital Screening Test is performed for couples planning marriage and screens for several most common genetic and infectious diseases such as sickle cell anemia, thalassemia, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and HIV. The purpose of this test; to reduce the risk of parents passing disease or genetic disorders to their children. Detecting a possible disease or carrier in the parents determines the predisposition to pass it on to their children. Therefore, it is one of the most important tests in reducing the number of congenital disabilities. Moreover, dangerous blood diseases inherited from parents to children are common in our country, where consanguineous marriages are high. In this respect, premarital screening tests are of great importance. They enable the couples to be married to determine the risk of having a child with thalassemia or sickle cell.

 Performing this test with premarital counseling can help strengthen the family structure and improve the quality of life of married couples. Also, having this screening test before pregnancy can reassure prospective couples that they are not carriers or help them make an informed choice for pregnancy. In case of detecting a disease or carrier in the mother or father, genetic counseling and PGT are recommended to the family before pregnancy. With PGT, healthy embryos that do not carry the disease or mutation can be selected to ensure that the family has a healthy child. It is recommended that the premarital screening test be done three months before the marriage date.

Other purposes and benefits of a premarital screening test are as follows:

 ● The spread of some genetic (sickle cell anemia, thalassemia) and infectious diseases is prevented

 ● Provides the development of awareness about the concept of a healthy marriage

 ● May reduce patient density in health institutes and blood banks
