​It is Important to Know if You Are a Carrier. Anyone Can Be a Carrier.

Carrier screening is a personalized genetic test that can determine if you and your partner carry genetic mutations that can lead to serious inherited disorders in your children.  A simple saliva or blood test can determine your carrier status. If two partners are carriers for the same recessive genetic disorder, then there is a 25% chance of passing that disorder onto each child you have together.

Carriers for genetic disorders are common worldwide and the only way to know your carrier status is through genetic screening.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the American College of Medical Genetics (ACMG) recommend genetic carrier screening.

What Do My Results Mean to Me?

Once you receive your results, there are many options available to you and your healthcare provider.  Early awareness can make a difference for the natural course of many genetic disorders.  Carriers may use the information to help plan and make informed decisions for a healthy future.  Reproductive options can be discussed in greater detail with your healthcare provider.
