love Double cousins

Recommended Posts

Guest Stan

Hey,

Does anyone have sound advice on the outcome of two cousins having children, when the guy is already the child of two cousins.

Any insight or help would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Stan

You should go for genetic counselling, where you will be able to get a personal risk calculation. 

Imho, any couple planning on having children should do so, not just those who are cousins or children of a cousin union themselves.

Good luck!

Good advice Lori.

First, you are not double cousins. I am not convinced that there is an increased risk in this case. In some countries, 80 percent of the population STILL marry cousins. And their children marry cousins. I have no idea how this relates to increased birth defects, but I think it is minimal or perhaps nonexistent. I have been wondering about this for some time. If someone has seen stats on the effect of generations of cousin marriages, I would like to see it.

If you are concerned, please see this website: http://www.nsgc.org/
