During your preconception consultation, the gynecologist may perform a physical test first. You might also be recommended to do a Pap test or other screening tests to check if your body is suffering from any sexually transmitted diseases. The doctor will also ask you and your partner to get tested for STDs. After this, your doctor will provide you with medication which will help you to cut down the risks for your pregnancy. You will also be given vitamins and supplements which will provide you all the necessary nutrients before you conceive a baby.
Folic acid is the most common vitamin which the doctor will give you for the healthy growth and development of your baby. If you have a habit of smoking or consuming alcohol, your doctor will ask you to quit immediately. You will also be asked if there is any history of complications during pregnancy in your family. In addition to all these, you may be recommended to take certain vaccinations and also undergo a pelvic test.
