Keywords:preconception screening, general conditions, risky behavior, the future brides
The detection of risk factors that cause maternal mortality such as Chronic Energy Deficiency (CED), Anemia, and risky behavior should be detected before conception. Preconception screening is a way to discontinue the delay in early detection of pregnancy risk factors which begin to be detected during Antenatal Care (ANC). Preconception screening is the key for a healthy pregnancy plan to avoid the risk of pregnancy complications before the occurrence of organogenesis so the process of developing fetal organs is not exposed to the risk factors. This study aimed to describe the results of the general condition examination and risk behavior in the female bride-to-be at KUA Kedungkandang. The research method used is descriptive quantitative. The sampling technique used was systematic random sampling. Data was collected by examining the general condition and distributing research questionnaires. The data analysis used is descriptive analysis and from the results of the study, the conclusions are: most of the respondents have good general condition examination results and most of the respondents (85%) do not have risky behavior. The future implication of this research proposes the policy makers to oblige preconception screening as marriage administrative requirement for prospective brides and grooms
