IF YOUR DOCTOR HAS PRESCRIBED A PRE-CONCEPTION WORKUP
A pre-conception workup includes blood tests for both the man and woman . You can get these analyses at the CLSC, in a hospital center, in a private laboratory or at ovo labo. They require no special preparation. A pre-conception workup also includes gynecological tests for women, namely cytology (pap-test) and culture for Chlamydia.
If you decide to do blood tests at the CLSC or in the hospital, they will be covered by the Régie de l’assurance-maladie du Québec (RAMQ) but it may take 4 to 6 weeks before we get the results. If you decide to use the ovo labo facilities, please get the information about the cost of the tests from our receptionists. You will get the results within seven working days.
