Abstract
Pregnancy planning is critical to ensuring optimal conditions for conception, gestation, and the subsequent birth of a healthy child. Preconception care for men is important for reproductive life as much as women’s preconception health and healthcare; however, little attention has been paid to male preconception care in Korea. Appropriate preconception care seeks to guide reproductive life planning, improve pregnancy outcomes, ensure a man’s capacity for parenthood and fatherhood, and enhance reproductive health. Additionally, preconception care for either sex offers the opportunity for disease prevention and health promotion. Clinicians thus have the opportunity to positively impact the reproductive health of men. Although men are less likely than women to consistently seek medical services, an office visit for any reason should be seen as an opportunity to introduce the idea of reproductive health. The recommendation of a subsequent office visit for physical examination with a focus on health promotion, disease prevention, and reproductive assessment is strongly encouraged. This paper focuses on risk assessment, one of the key elements of comprehensive optimization of male preconception care.
Key Words: male, preconception care, pregnancy
