Your Options as an AS Genotype Couple – Break Up

Edited by the Chocoholic Girl

1. Break Up
You probably don’t want to hear this but I have to tell you this first.

“If you love her, you have to leave her.”

This is often most easily recommended, particularly by those who have never had to do it. It is presumably easier to find someone else who is not a carrier than to risk having a child with the sickle cell disease, regardless of the 75% chance at healthy children and your happiness.

Consequently, this is the road most taken and with good reason. Parents, friends, colleagues, strangers and even your enemies will pressure and taunt you with the death of children you don’t yet have. Then you will be labelled foolish and selfish for objecting to their suggestion.

“There are many fishes in the river.”

To be honest, no one cares about how much you really love your current fish or if you are uninterested in other fishes #justsaying.

Summarily, this is the cheapest and “easiest” solution to your genotype issue, except for a minor heartbreak. If you want peace and aren’t about to be out here defending, explaining and fighting for your love, this is for you; Break up with your AS beau(x) for the greater good.

If you are a love-warrior and really want to take a chance on this,  don’t stop now. There are other options. Read Option 2.
