In Which Hospital Can I Check For GENOTYPE Of Unborn Child Here In Nigeria. by irunmoleaiye: 6:44pm On Jul 03, 2015
Hello Good people of Nairaland, My wife is about two months pregnant now and i made a terrible mistake of not asking of her Genotype until recently. Now my wife and i have the same AS Genotype which means we have 25% chance of giving birth to an SS Child. Please did anybody knows any Hospital in Nigeria where we can do Prenatal diagnostic to know the Genetoype of the unborn child? I'll also like to know the price range of during such test. Thank you all

I understand you perfectly, just relax your mind and have positive thinking all the time.


I was or will i say am also in your situation. My wife and I are both As too, we got married in 2012.

I found out that my wife was AS while we are 3yrs into the relationship and we dated for 5yrs before gotten married to her in 2012. I knew the consequences but am so much in love with her that i damn all issues or crisis that may come when we start having babies. To God be the glory, we had a baby boy in 2013 April. The boy did not show any sign of sickness until he was 2 yrs. I was scared to have him tested for GT, but to God be the glory after deciding to test in 3 different places, we found out he is AA. He fall sick just because of malaria and little baby's normal infection.

Why am saying this is to let you rest your mind and have positive thinking. Before she got pregnant, a DR friend of mine prescribe Pregnant care with conception for her, she was using it and later got pregnant and we swicth to pregnant care plus folic acid. We make sure the baby was healthy from conception till he was born.

When we gave birth, we make sure he was breasfeed for 1yr without water nor baby's food vut during those period we use Wellkid for babies from 3months old till date.

My baby born is so healthy that, am tired of his troublesome and playing around and he so intelligent.

Why am saying this is that, we might be lucky that we had a baby without SS trace, but the processes we gone thru and the believe we also had might have worked but not proven medically sha ooo.

We are planning for the second baby soon. Just have believe and pray all the time for the baby and the mama. God can change all things.

BRIDGE CLINIC SAID THEY DON'T DO IT SO I CONTACTED SICKLE CELL FOUNDATION IN LAGOS AND THEY SAID THE PRICE IS ABOUT 270K BECAUSE THEY STILL HAVE TO SEND THE SAMPLE TO ENGLAND. This is a mistake that could have easily been avoided if not for my negligence. I hope other people will learn from my experience.

Don't lose hope, just have faith, it will turn out positive. There are cases of AS and AS couple who later have kids that are not SS even with little or no medical assistant. BE POSITIVE. God will see you thru

Re: In Which Hospital Can I Check For GENOTYPE Of Unborn Child Here In Nigeria. by missuzoma: 10:30am On Feb 24, 2017
my personal experience in this matter is a subject of testimony. we both knew our genotypes were as but we were (still are) so much in love and could not bear separating. we cried and prayed and married. none of our three kids is ss and they are grown now. we did not have extraordinary faith and often panicked when it came to testing them for genotype. we were very young and i do not think i will attempt such a thing if i had been up to 27 years or above at the time of marriage. i also know i will shout wella if any of my kids try such a thing after what i have seen people go through with ss kids. recently, i watched a cousin's twenty-five year old daughter die right under my nose from sickle cell disease complications. i am at a loss what to advise other than to listen very well to what the almighty has to say in every situation.

The Test can also be done at BodyAffairs Diagnostics in Abuja. However its advicable to know your genotype before marriage. Genotype Tests in BodyAffairs Diagnostics is much more Quantitative in the sense that it gives you a percentage variance of the A to S. Pre-Marital Testing should be encouraged.

There is a center inside Luth where you can do your prenatal genotype test it is around 100 - 150k. I plan to do mine there. Waiting for madam to get pregnant. She is AC and I am AS thou.
Re: In Which Hospital Can I Check For GENOTYPE Of Unborn Child Here In Nigeria. by Alobogab: 12:44am On Oct 30, 2017
I am very surprise with this post. Do you plan to kill the unborn child. You currently do not have an option if you have any regards for God Your plans may be the abortion of the pregnancy and termination of the marriage. It's all about you,
You have already made the mistake and just have to live with it irrespective of the outcome.
In future, you should do invitro fertilisation and pre gestational genetic diagnosis (PGD) before implantation to avoid a similar challenge.
The revolution in gene therapy and genetic engineering has made the prospect of curing sickle cell disease possible in the future including the hematapoeitic stem cell transplantation.
Many patients with the disorder now live to adulthood
