The Doctor’s Checklist for the Bride

The Doctor’s Checklist for the Bride

Now that your wedding is approaching, you find that your to-do lists are getting longer and longer. To help you out, we narrowed down the most essential appointments you need to make when it comes to doctors.

-Your Dermatologist
Book an appointment with your dermatologist to see what face-care regimen you need to adopt so you can glow for the big day… and after. Try to make your visit at least 4-6 months before your wedding; especially if you have problematic skin, or you need to get botox injections or fillings.

-Your Allergist
Make sure you visit your allergist if you’re going to an exotic place for your honeymoon. It’s also a good idea to see what you’re allergic to, so that your skin doesn’t break out in a rash anytime around the wedding. You can book your appointment at any time before your big day.

-Your GP
Visiting your General Physician should probably be the first step on your list. You can ask your GP any question you may have regarding your married life, or you can inquire about any problem you might be facing so that they can refer you to a specialist.

-Your Gynecologist
Visit your gynecologist at least 3 months before your wedding if you are planning to go on the pill. If you do not want to take any contraceptives, you can just visit your gynecologist a month before for a regular check up.

-Your Dentist
Whether you have any teeth pain, you need to go for your regular check up, or you want to whiten your teeth, you have to make sure that visiting your dentist is a top priority. Do not put off going to your dentist because you might need several appointments and recovery time before your wedding. Try to book an appointment at least 3-4 months before the big day.

-Blood Tests
Your GP will probably tell you what blood tests you need to take before you legally get married. Blood tests for your marriage certificate differ from one country to another, so do ask about that at least a month before your wedding or Katb Ktaab. And since you’re already drawing blood, you might want to check for your vitamin and mineral levels, to make sure you don’t have any deficiencies.
