Me and my partner suffer from minor thalassemia. We want to know if we can have a normal child?

1 Doctor Answered
Yes. 25 percent chance of the child being completely normal and 50 percent chance of the child having thal minor. Only 25 percent chance that the child will have thal major. U can always do a prenatal diagnosis and confirm the status of the foetus during the early pregnancy ancy period and take necessary actions.
