What Is the Purpose of Pre-Marriage Tests?

In individuals who want to have children, genetic carrier or mutation should be determined. In order not to transfer the detected carrier or mutation to the next generations, it is necessary to get pregnant with the in vitro fertilization method and by genetic selection, the embryo that does not carry carrier or mutation should be transferred to the mother. As a result of this process, the carrier and mutation will no longer be transferred and healthy generations will be formed.

For example, if one of the spouses is an SMA carrier, the other spouse should have the SMA test in order not to have a child with SMA. If the SMA carrier gene is detected in both spouses, it is necessary to become pregnant by genetic selection.

Why Are Pre-Marriage Tests Important?

It is vital to do genetic testing before marriage or having children. It is essential for early diagnosis and treatment. Considering the rate of consanguineous marriages in Turkey, it is highly likely that the carrier or mutation of one of the spouses is also the other spouse.

If both spouses are carriers, the probability of developing the disease is 25%. 25% of babies to be born are healthy and 50% are carriers. In Turkey, the rate of SMA carrier is 1 in every 40 people. Even if there is no family history, every couple who is newly married or who wants to have a child should have an SMA carrier test.

How Many Days Do Pre-Marriage Tests Take?

Tests that require culture, such as chromosome analysis, are concluded within 5 to 7 working days.
