Hi doctor,

I am married to my cousin, blood relatives. My blood group is B positive, and my wife is A positive. She gave birth to a dead baby, and it was the first pregnancy. I am deeply concerned if this because of our relationship. Please guide me.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • In consanguineous marriage, the chance of spread of autosomal recessive disorder and certain congenital malformations is present.
  • Hence, both of your CBC (complete blood count) report and HPLC (high-performance liquid chromatography) should be done to rule out hemoglobinopathy.
  • Genetic counseling should be done before conception. After conception, regular clinical checkup and chorionic villus sampling like investigations should be done if needed.
