Blood test in pregnancy

Blood analysis primarily involves determining the blood group of the pregnant woman and Rh factors, complete blood count and biochemistry with liver and kidney functions as well as coagulation status.

Other specific analyzes are performed in indicated cases and include TORCH (IgG and IgM antibodies to Toxoplasma, Rubella, Cytomegalovirus and Chlamydia), testing for congenital and acquired thrombophilia as well as other specific analyzes.

In addition to the analysis of blood in the first trimester of pregnancy, it is necessary to examine urine, cervical and vaginal swabs (including specific swabs for Chlamydia, Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma) as well as colposcopic examination and Papanicolaou swab if more than a year has passed compared to the previous control.
