Blood Testing

Blood-Testing-Corona-Gynecologist-1

Blood testing is a part of routine obstetrical and gynecological care. Blood tests are performed as a way to diagnose medical conditions that could impact your ability to conceive a child or have a healthy, full-term pregnancy. Blood tests are also helpful for monitoring your own health, because they can detect diseases in early stages. Our doctors will order routine blood testing as a way to check if you have a proper balance of hormones for optimal health. You may have additional tests or repeat testing if any of your results are unusual.

What to Expect

When your doctor needs to perform preventive blood testing, the technician will begin by locating a vein on your arm. The technician will collect one or more small samples of blood by using a new, sterile needle and collection tube. The tubes will be labeled with your name and then sent to a laboratory for analysis. Your doctor will receive results within 24 to 96 hours, depending on the types of blood testing that you need to have done. If confirmatory results are needed for any of your tests, the final results may take a few extra days.

Who Needs Blood Testing?

Preventive blood testing is used to diagnose a wide variety of medical conditions that could affect your health or the viability of a pregnancy. Your obstetrician may order blood testing for anemia. A low iron level impacts your health and the development of a baby. Your blood type and Rh factor may also be tested. This is important for determining whether you are at risk for a condition called Rh sensitization, which happens if you have a negative Rh factor and your child’s father has a positive Rh factor.

Your blood testing may also check for conditions such as HIV infection. We also perform blood testing to check your immunity to infectious diseases such as chicken pox, whooping cough, diphtheria, measles, mumps, and rubella. If you are not immune to these diseases, your physician may give you an immunization. If you are not pregnant, blood testing can be done to check estrogen, progesterone, and thyroid hormone levels to diagnose an ovarian, thyroid, or pituitary gland disorder. Preventive blood testing also includes checking for parathyroid, thyroid, and pituitary hormones that may cause you to have a low metabolism.
