What does it measure?
This test is performed to detect the presence of positive Hepatitis B antibodies. In this way, the disease can be diagnosed and possible damage to the baby prevented, since a mother who tests positive can transmit this disease to her child.
Hepatitis B is most likely to be passed from mother to baby during pregnancy or delivery. Therefore, it is very important to know the immunization status of this disease through IgG and IgM analysis to take appropriate measures to reduce the risk of infection to the baby.
HCV Ac. Total
It is called “antibody test” and is performed to measure the presence of antibodies released into the blood of Hepatitis C, in order to diagnose this disease.
Rubella IgM / IgG
The IgM indicator indicates recent infection with rubella disease. With the IgG parameter, it is diagnosed if this disease has been overcome or treated by vaccine and, therefore, the person has acquired immunity.
It is a sexually transmitted disease caused by bacteria that remain in the body of the infected person. If not treated in time, it can cause serious health consequences and the infection can be transmitted to the baby during pregnancy, childbirth or breastfeeding.
It consists of a test to detect and differentiate antibodies against types 1 and 2 of the human immunodeficiency virus, called HIV-1 and HIV-2 through a blood sample.
It is a blood test to make the diagnosis of hepatitis B. All pregnant women should perform the diagnostic test for hepatitis B, since if positive this disease can be transmitted to the baby.
The karyotype is an analysis that allows to study the number and shape of the chromosomes of human cells that serves to detect congenital and acquired diseases.
An essential vitamin for health. We all need folic acid! It is a vitamin belonging to the B complex very important for the correct fetal development.
25 OH Vitamin D
It is important to have adequate levels of this vitamin since it is related to the quality of ovarian tissue and endometrium and favors the correct implantation of the embryo in the maternal uterus.
It is used to measure the level of ALT in the blood to diagnose liver diseases before presenting symptoms. Due to the possibility of presenting alterations during pregnancy, it is necessary to measure these levels.
It measures the amount of AST in the blood, which if high indicates liver disease or damage. During pregnancy it is common to have some high levels of AST that will disappear after delivery, but it is necessary to prevent possible damage to the mother or baby.
Creatinine is a test that measures the level of creatinine in the blood. It is done to see how well the kidneys are working.
It is used to detect blood sugar levels. The average blood glucose for adults is between 70-100 mg/dL. During pregnancy, the so-called gestational diabetes can occur, which affects between 5-10% of pregnant women.
It is used to measure the amount of nitrogen in the blood from urea, which is considered a waste product. Its measurement serves to assess the proper functioning of the kidneys. Low blood nitrogen may be common in the second or third trimester of pregnancy.
Indirect Coombs Test
It is used to detect antibodies that act against red blood cells (or red blood cells) present in the blood. The reason for the appearance of such antibodies during pregnancy is due to the exposure of the mother to red blood cells of another person, in this case, the baby. It is done to pregnant women who have an Rh negative.
Blood Group and Rh Factor
The blood group is determined by the characteristics present in the red blood cells and serum that make up the blood. For its part, Rh is a type of protein that may or may not be present in the blood. If it is, we will be Rh positive while the absence of this is a negative Rh. Rh positive is the most frequent.
Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time
Activated prothrombin thromboplastin (aTPT) partial time is a test that measures the time it takes for blood to clot. This test is done to find out if there is a clotting or bleeding problem. During pregnancy our coagulation levels are altered, so it is important to measure these levels.
Prothrombin time (PT) measures the time it takes for blood to form a blood clot and is done using a blood sample. Low PT may occur during pregnancy, so it is important to measure it.
The Blood Count is a part of the blood test that provides us with the count of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.
An abnormal increase or decrease in cell counts could indicate an undiagnosed disease that needs to be further evaluated.
Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH)
It is a hormone that plays an important role in the maturation of the egg during the menstrual cycle. Recent studies have also suggested that normal levels of thyroid hormones are essential for the proper development of the embryo, as well as for its subsequent implantation.
Anti-Müllerian Hormone (AMH)
The antimullerian is the hormone that tells us the ovarian reserve, that is, it will provide us with information about the amount of oocytes that you still have available.
