Find out what happens at a preconception doctor visit, as you make that first step toward trying to conceive.
If you are planning to conceive in the near future you may want to think about scheduling a preconception visit with your OBGYN. Taking care of yourself prior to conceiving is very important for you and your baby. Once the appointment is set you may start asking yourself: “What are they going to do to me? Should I be concerned?” The answer is not to be concerned but come prepared. Below is your “list” of what they will talk to you about and a short list of what some doctors do but not all.
Firstly, your doctor will do a full evaluation of your medical history. He/she will check to see if you have any pre-existing conditions. He/she will also advise of all things you should or should not do during this pre-conception time.
Besides talking with you about your medical history, your doctor may also perform various test and request lab work to be done to check for possible pre-existing conditions as well.
Some doctors may do more than what is listed here, others may do less. If you know your OBGYN as well as I do, then he/she won’t have to ask as many of these questions. Depending on how long you have been seeing a particular doctor they may have already asked everything from a prior pregnancy, or in patient paperwork.
These visits are easy as long as you are prepared for the questions. Preconception visits are probably the most tense appointment for the next few months. Once pregnant it’s a whole new ballgame.
