There is the same possibility with every pregnancy. The only way to be sure and avoid having another affected child is by using PGD and IVF, a costly process that can take multiple attempts to succeed.

PGD is preimplantation genetic diagnosis. The embryos are checked for status, so a non-carrier embryo is implanted via IVF, in vitro fertilization.

You can't plan anything based on chance. I know many families with three thal majors. The mathematical chances mean nothing.

No, it's completely chance and can't be affected by anything you do. You could easily have another child with the same sickle cell beta thal.

I know a family both of they are carrier and they not take any child within 12 yrs.

Last year they take a chance and after 13 yrs fortunately they got a child who is carrier.

But couple like us which chances not successful...
