Your Options as an AS Genotype Couple


Edited by the Chocoholic Girl

In conclusion, let me emphasise that I am not a medical personnel or any type of expert in the medical field. The information gathered in this post is based on years of research invested into try find a way around the genotype dilemma.

That said, whichever option you and your partner settle for, I sincerely wish you both happiness.


Some Hope
In late 2015, I stumbled on articles in the Vanguard, Daily Trust and The Herald discussing a cure for Sickle Cell Disease and stating that Nigerian doctors were to be trained in the USA on the procedure by the first quarter of 2016.
However, there are drawbacks with regards to the availability, risks, limitations and cost of the procedure since it’s new, and then finding a matching donor for the bone marrow transplant. But it’s hope none the less.
In the meantime, do support the Sickle Cell Foundation Nigeria.

  1. Hi,
    I stumbled on this article as I had to some research since I met a girl I would love to get serious with but got to find out she also has the AS genotype and she asked me to read up on advancements as we could still get together. I am definitely sticking to option 1 because I do not believe in getting into troubles and complications which can be avoided. I love your style of writing i must say, I giggled almost all through. Cheers

    • Yeah, it’s a difficult situation to be faced with but one day there will be an affordable cure. Thank you for reading and remember to share.


  3. just read your article now. I stumbled on it while trying to get solutions to my dilemma. I have lost a number of relationships because of genotype. My fiance got her genotype test result today, about 2 hours ago, and she is AS. I love her dearly. I am really seeking for a way out of this predicament. I do not know why I always fall in love with AS ladies. I am AS too. My life is in the hand of God.
