What does Premarital Health Checkup for Couples measure?

Contains 6 tests

A Premarital Health Checkup for Couples is tailored to provide a holistic health assessment of soon-to-be-married couples. It comprises a viral marker test, blood group test, hemoglobin test, and antibody test for syphilis. The viral marker tests for hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and HIV are important for couples as they help identify potential infections that can be transmitted sexually or through blood contact. The blood group and Rh (Rhesus) factor test tells your blood group type (A, B, AB, O) and whether your blood is Rh positive or Rh negative. This information is important for medical purposes, including blood transfusions and pregnancy-related considerations. The hemoglobin test helps assess the overall health of the soon-to-be-married couples and helps detect any potential problems related to anemia or other blood disorders. Additionally, an antibody test for syphilis is crucial to screen for sexually transmitted infections, ensuring early detection and appropriate medical intervention for a healthier start to married life.

Hb HPLC (Hb Variants Estimation by HPLC)

An Hb HPLC (Hb Variants Estimation by HPLC) test is used to identify and quantify different types of hemoglobin in the blood to diagnose and monitor specific blood disorders. Different types of hemoglobin are Adult type (HbA2), Fetal type (HbF), Hemoglobin S (HbS), Hemoglobin C (HbC), and Hemoglobin E (HbE), etc.

Normal types of hemoglobin include:

  • Hemoglobin (Hgb) A: The most common type of hemoglobin in healthy adults
  • Hemoglobin (Hgb) F: Fetal hemoglobin, which is found in unborn babies and newborns. HgbF is replaced by HgbA shortly after birth.

A deranged level of HgbA or HgbF might indicate certain types of anemia.

Abnormal types of hemoglobin include:

  • Hemoglobin (Hgb) S: This type of hemoglobin is found in sickle cell anemia, an inherited disorder that causes the body to make stiff, sickle-shaped red blood cells. Sickle cells can get stuck in the blood vessels, causing severe pain, long-term infections, and other complications.
  • Hemoglobin (Hgb) C: This type of hemoglobin is associated with hemolytic anemia that develops when your red blood cells are destroyed more easily than normal red blood cells or have a shorter life span than normal red blood cells. 
  • Hemoglobin (Hgb) E: This type of hemoglobin is mainly found in people of Southeast Asian descent and may be associated with mild anemia or no symptoms. 
  • Hemoglobin (Hgb) D: Hb D disease (HbDD) is characterized by mild hemolytic anemia and mild to moderate splenomegaly. Hb D Punjab occurs with the most significant prevalence in Gujarat and Sikhs of Punjab.

VDRL; RPR (Rapid Plasma Reagin)

A VDRL; RPR (Rapid Plasma Reagin) test looks for antibodies (specific proteins) that react to syphilis in the blood. This means the test doesn't find the actual bacteria that cause syphilis. Instead, it looks for antibodies against substances given off by cells that have been harmed by the bacteria.  Antibodies are a specific type of protein produced by your immune system to fight off any invader such as bacteria, virus or toxins. Detecting these antibodies can help your doctors know if you have syphilis. Untreated syphilis can spread to your eyes, blood vessels, heart and brain. But it can be easily cured if treated in the early stages.

Blood Group ABO & RH Factor Test

The Blood Group ABO & RH Factor Test determines your blood type and Rh factor. Healthcare providers can ensure compatibility and prevent adverse reactions during medical interventions by identifying an individual's blood type and Rh factor. This test is essential for various medical procedures, including blood transfusions, organ transplants, and prenatal care.

Triple H (HIV, HBV, HCV)

A Triple H (HIV, HBV, HCV) test includes testing of three transmissible viral infections, namely hepatitis B surface antigen, hepatitis C virus antibody, and HIV combo (antigen and antibody) test. These tests evaluate the presence or absence of the viruses causing hepatitis B or C and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) in your blood sample.

HIV combo (antigen and antibody) test detects HIV-1 and HIV-2 antibodies in the blood and confirms the presence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). HIV-1 was discovered first and is the most widespread, whereas HIV-2 is more than 55% genetically different from HIV-1. The transmission rate of HIV-2 is also slower than HIV-1. This test also helps to differentiate between the two HIV infections.

Hepatitis B surface antigen test confirms the presence of hepatitis B virus (HBV) in an individual. HBsAg is the first serological marker to appear in the blood within 1 to 10 weeks after recent exposure to HBV. The persistence of this marker for more than 6 months implies chronic (long-term) HBV infection, which may lead to liver damage (scarring or cirrhosis). A person with a chronic infection can spread the disease to healthy individuals, even if they do not show or experience any symptoms.

The hepatitis C virus antibody (CMIA/CLIA) test determines if you have been infected by the hepatitis C virus (HCV) and helps your doctor guide your treatment. HCV causes liver inflammation and is classified into acute hepatitis infection and chronic hepatitis infection.

  • Acute hepatitis C: This occurs in the first six months after exposure to the hepatitis C virus. In the early stage of the infection, acute hepatitis C is mild and may cause no symptoms. For this reason, most people do not know they have this infection.

  • Chronic hepatitis C: If your body is unable to fight off the virus, you can develop a chronic hepatitis C infection. Progression from acute to chronic hepatitis C is common, occurring in about 75-85% of patients. Detecting chronic hepatitis C at the early stage is vital to prevent future complications, such as liver failure, and initiate effective treatment.
