    Good evening. I guess you are married already that's to say you both knew of your genotype way before marriage, were you counselled?. May I ask if any children? Currently there are ways to screen the developing fetus genotype to know if it's SS and then the choice will be yours and your husband if you want to keep the fetus developing. If you are not already aware of the risk involved I will advise you and your husband visit a sickle cell centre and get educated on having an SS child. The chances are 4:1 and it may not occur at all. I hope have helped. Compliments.
