Genetic Carrier Screening for Female

Genetic carrier screening for female is a screening test to predict the risk of developing genetic diseases of children due to abnormal genes inherited from a parent.

Why is genetics important to my health?

Genetic diseases are caused by abnormal genes inherited from parents to children. In most cases, parents do not have symptoms because they are the carriers bearing the abnormal genes without expression. When the pathogenic genes pass to their children, they cause diseases. The most common conditions are Fragile X syndrome, spinal muscular atrophy, and congenital hearing loss. 

Who should consider carrier screening?

  • Couple planning to have children
  • People with a family history of genetic disease
  • People who plan to donate sperm, eggs, or embryos
  • People who concern for the risk of having children with genetic abnormalities

Genetic carrier screening analyzes more than 300 genes related to more than 100 congenital diseases.
