Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Can normal tests tell that a person will have abnormal kids or no kids at all? Please explain.

Answered by Dr. Sadaf Mustafa


Welcome to icliniq.com. I am sorry, but I am not sure which test you are referring to. If you are referring to semen analysis, then unless the tests remain normal, the likelihood of having kids is high. However, this test would not provide information about the abnormality of kids. If you are referring to genetic analysis, then yes, some genetic testing can determine if the child is abnormal. These tests are usually performed after a female becomes pregnant, using the fluid around the baby or the mother's blood work. Some genetic testing can be done on the father, but it depends on the specific condition you are looking for. For example, if you are searching for abnormal blood disorders, it requires different genetic testing than a muscle disorder.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
