Almost everyone in the world is in one or two romantic relationship. You know, some double date, so two romantic relationship. An important factor to consider when delving into a romantic relationship is Genotype. Know your partner, this should be the first agenda to avoid stories that touch the heart and sickle cell saga.
Relationship is not war, it is normal to have fun and explore. But, before you get carried away, it is necessary to know your partner, it's for the future, not now. Some ladies are so greedy to the extent of overlooking the compulsory thing to do. All they want is Ice cream and Shawarma, and flex. They just want to be known as a rich dude's girlfriend or fiancée , neglecting the consequences of their action.
What you need to do, is very easy. It can be over a dinner date, or an outing. "Babe, do you mind filling me in on your Genotype and blood group? I'm AA and 'O' positive. What's yours? Or, it can be like this... "Sweetie, if you really want to be the father or mother of our unborn healthy babies, I need to know if we are compatible,for the sake of our babies, what's your Genotype, love?
It is very simple, like A B C, no arguments involved. It's not a crime if your Genotype isn't favourable, you didn't create yourself. If you are about to walk down the aisle, to be one forever with your partner, and you ain't aware of what your Genotype and blood group is, you are making a huge mistake. It's disastrous.
Imagine for a minute, giving birth to sick babies,and spending almost every weekend at the hospital cause of your reckless attitude..sad. I'm sure you don't want that.
Genotype is the description of the pair of alleles in our DNA. There are five different types of blood genotype. They are AA,AS, AC,SS, SC. The first two pairs (AA & AS) are normal. AC is rare and the latter two (SS & SC) are irregular and anomalous, Commonly causing sickle cell disease. Sickle cell occurs when an individual's blood cells are shaped in a deformed and abnormal manner, blocking blood flow,causing pain and damage to vital organs.
Before taking the bold step of saying "I, do" be sure your Genotype is compatible with your partner.
Generally, AA is best for different blood genotype. AA, can marry AA, AS, SS, AC. AS, can not marry AS, SS, AC,. SS is not compatible with SS, same with AC. The best blood genotype for SS and AC is AA. Below, is the different genotype and their compatibility.
AA + AA = AA, AA, AA, AA (excellent)
AA + AS = AA, AS, AA, AS, (Good)
AA + SS = AS, AS, AS, AS, (Fair)
AA + AC = AA, AA, AA, AC. (Good)
AS + AS = AA, AS, AS, SS, (Very Bad)
AS + SS = AS, SS, SS, SS, (Very Bad)
AS + AC = AA, AC, AS,SS. (Bad; Advice needed)
SS + SS = SS, SS, SS, SS, (Very Bad)
AC + SS = AS, AS, SS, SS, (Very Bad)
