Here are a few pointers for your reference:
– No definite diagnosis may be made from test results alone, and test results should be correlated with your medical history and other clinical findings.
– Screening tests may carry limitations in the capacity to identify or rule out the presence or absence of a condition. Normal test results may not necessarily mean the absence of a medical condition.
– The majority (about 95%) of a normal population test results will fall within the normal range. About 5% of the normal population test results may be slightly above or below the normal level.
– It is an acceptable fact that a normal person’s test results may fluctuate at different times although still within the normal range. This occurrence may be due to diet or other factors.
When pregnant, you will typically be seeing your obstetrician regularly for follow-up and antenatal care. Screening tests necessary (e.g. screening for gestational diabetes) will typically be conducted at your O&G clinic.
It is thus recommended that you do not undergo health screening with us when pregnant. If you do wish to, you are encouraged to only evaluate your lipid profile and fasting glucose.
Certain vaccinations may not be administered when you are pregnant. Please check with our doctors for suitability via teleconsult here.
If you are breastfeeding, it is acceptable to undergo health screening. However, this should not take place in lieu of or before your post natal follow up with your obstetrician.
It is acceptable to go for health screening when you are having your menses. However, kindly refrain from submitting your urine specimen when you are having your menses. It is advisable to wait till day 5 from the last day of your menstrual cycle for better accuracy.
Pap smear studies should not be conducted until after day 8 of menses.
