    Goodmorning, though SC is regarded as slightly better than SS but both still go through crisis and it's way better to avoid getting married when their is a chance of having children with Sickle Cell Disease as the emotional and also the financial stress of having children with Sickle Cell Disease is really huge.

    So for someone with genotype AC the best person to choose as a partner should be AA..no more no less

    Exactly you got the point. You should avoid choosing AS or AC. Have a lovely day. Take care
