    Hello, I'll advise a partner with genotype AA but since you are aware of the condition you have and are willing to take the 25% risk chance of having SC genotype offspring you can go ahead but note such offspring will have to marry AA. all the best.

    Yes they can be optimally avoided if strictly followed but still need to visit a doctor to examine the child and give you further instructions.
