Do You Need A Male Toxo Test?
Hello Adityafirmanto, Thank you for the question.
Fetal development disorders can occur in every pregnant woman. Impaired fetal development can be caused by chromosomal abnormalities, hormonal disorders, infections, and others. Infections that can affect pregnancy are toxoplasma infections, other infections (such as HIV, syphilis, chickenpox, measles), rubella, cytomegalovirus, and herpes simplex (TORCH). If a pregnant woman had this infection before pregnancy and during pregnancy and it has not been treated, then this infection can affect fetal development or may lead to miscarriage.
If this pregnancy disorder occurs, usually the doctor will examine your wife first and the examination is generally not necessary to examine you, but this is adjusted to the examination of your wife. Usually, if you need to be examined as a husband, the test that can be done is testing for HIV and syphilis because these infections can be transmitted to your wife.
Please discuss your wife and obstetrics with the obstetrics and gynecology specialist in charge of your wife regarding the next examination. Also discuss with your doctor about the next pregnancy program.
Hope this information is helpful.
