i dunno. Should you get married( smiley) Should you break up ( smiley) . It seems you are still in lala land, and in a fairytale as you are smiling up and down. Go and read about this triat, and come back with your conclusions. If you think love conquers all, and are still in fairy land then you would have answered your own question.lol. grin

no, you shouldnt get married.

this is extremely common knowledge which you didnt need to ask people's opinion about unless you really dont know.

@poster,u need not go into marriage.But most pple decide to take the risk.And somtimes, they are
lucky.i.e, having the first offspring and second to be AS.But the probability of having the third free from SS
is 0.Sometimes u might be unlucky as well having the first offspring to be SS.
Guess you dnt want to take the risk just becos of luv?think right dear!

AS + AS = AA, AS, or SS. It's only a great risk nobody wants to take. The only other option is to get married like you want to but you make sure you do a Genetic Prenatal Testing, each time you're pregnant. This will tell you your baby's genotype even a very young age, and let you decide whether to keep the pregnancy or abort it. But then again it depends on where you are when you're pregnant as this test is only done abroad.

Your choice.
Your business, not ours.
Be prepared for the consequences, if you are unlucky to have sickle cell children.
Now you know.

The strain has ended many marriages.
Decide wisely.

Re: We both have the sickle cell trait....? by kieryn(f): 3:34pm On May 04, 2010
If you all truely love each other there nothing wrong with staying together and even getting married. But having kids should not be an option. You risk having a child with sickle cell anemic. Try adoption if you desire kids.

Re: We both have the sickle cell trait....? by ayanfemy(f): 4:51pm On May 05, 2010
