This is why they: Have genetic counseling going along with genetic testing. I do not know if these genes are dominant or recessive. How do you know what risks known and unknown surrogates eggs carry? Do you wish you were not born? Do yo blame your parents? Do you feel that your biological children would resent having risk and blame you for giving it to them? Much pain is caused by guilt and blame. Get counseling.
