For the autosomal recessive forms both parents must be carriers. ...Read more

If my 2nd son had hemolytic disease of the newborn, what are the chances the rest of my babies will as well?
Depends: Hemolytic disease of the newborn, which is due to rh or ABO incompatibility, happens when the newborn's blood type is incompatible with the mother's, and the mother has passed antibody to the baby in utero. In ABO disease, the mother must be type o and the baby either a or b. In rh disease, the mother must be rh- and the baby rh+. So, subsequent risk depends on the fetus' blood type. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What are the chances of my baby having heart problems if the father has a heart murmur? My husband was born with a heart murmur and we are thinking of conceiving. We would like to know the chances of the baby being born with a heart defect also.
It : It depends on the defect since some are more heritable than others. Not all heart murmurs are caused by heart defects, in fact, most heart murmurs occur in completely normal hearts. A murmur is just an extra heart sound we hear when listening to someone's heart and doesn't necessarily mean that there is a problem. Talk to your husband's doctor to find out if his murmur is due to a heart defect and what kind of defect it is if he does in fact have one. Once you know what it is, you'll be able to find out if it is a concern when thinking of having children - you can talk to your ob/gyn about your concerns. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The only thing that I am aware of is those men who have had circumcision, may experience less sexual enhancement. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
