Is Checking Blood During 4 Months Of Pregnancy Important?
good afternoon doctor .. I want to ask whether a blood check when pregnant is a must or not? my pregnancy age is 4 street 5, and can I check it anywhere?
Blood check in pregnancy is very important to do. The goal is to determine whether there are conditions or abnormalities that can be experienced by the fetus and pregnant women. In addition, it is also to prevent or predict the possibilities if unfavorable results are obtained.
Some of the checks carried out include:
Complete blood count, one of which is to assess hemoglobin levels because pregnant women are prone to anemia, examination of white blood cells and other blood cells to assess whether or not there is an antibody and rhesus blood group test, which is useful for fetuses or mothers TORCH examination, where infection is present This infection can affect the growth and development of the fetus HIV test, where HIV infection can be transmitted from pregnant women to their fetuses Hepatitis B and C tests, where hepatitis infection can be transmitted from pregnant women to their fetuses Syphilis tests Urine tests The results of this examination will be carried out several times to monitor the health of pregnant women, especially if they experience disorders such as anemia. For this reason, it is also important to carry out regular pregnancy examinations, either by midwives or obstetricians, to maintain the pregnancy and the health of the mother and fetus until delivery. Do not be afraid to do blood tests because if they can be detected early, they can be treated more quickly so as not to cause unwanted things or more serious problems.
