I am in a moral dilemma. My partner has some health conditions such as endometriosis, which means she has a harder time falling pregnant with a chance of not falling pregnant at all. She has other minor health conditions which after thinking about it is starting to worry me.

I do not want to knowingly pass these conditions onto my children. I also care about my partner so I feel stuck. What do I do from here?

Relationship & Sex    NOBODY would actually WANT to pass on ANY genetic “defects” to their children. While I understand your concerns, I do wonder if this is “cold feet” at the thought of having a child? Will this be your first child? If your worries are genuinely about the child (and not about whether you are ready to have one), you need to speak with your doctor and get them to put you in contact with someone who can give you real information about the chances of health issues being passed on. If the chances are high, perhaps discuss alternatives to natural conception, such as fertilization of another woman’s egg with your sperm and then implant into your partner’s womb. There are probably loads of other alternatives too.

Health And Fitness i-do-not-want-my-kids-to-inherit-my-partners-health-problems-1 I do not want my kids to inherit my partner's health problems! Relationship & Sex    Pregnancy always comes with the risk of deformities and genetic diseases. As Honeypie pointed out, only girls can get endometriosis, and since it can be a painful condition, I can understand your concern. However, I would point out that there’s no guarantee that you will have a girl, and there’s no guarantee that, if you had a girl, that she will inherit the condition. Furthermore, even if said girl had the condition, that doesn’t mean that she will have a severe form of it. Also, adoption is always an option, especially if it turns out that your wife is infertile.If I were you, I believe that I would try because I don’t see it as a moral dilemma. After all, your wife is the one who suffers from the condition and if she’s living a happy life and wants to have children, who are you to say that it would be immoral to allow someone like your wife to be born?

Relationship & Sex    Well, ONLY a female child would possibly get endometriosis. No one in my family has it but two of my kids do, possibly from my HUSBAND’S side. Genetics is a draw of the luck. You just don’t know what you got, what you pass on and what you don’t pass on.I’m sure YOU might even have some genetic “defects” that YOU possibly could pass on. It sounds a little like you are looking for a way out of the relationship, here.So many things can go wrong during pregnancy. There IS not guarantee that your child will be healthy. There never HAS been, yet people have had kids for millions of years.Someone can LOOK completely healthy and have dormant genetic defects…Consider genetic testing perhaps? Talk to a doctor about your concerns?
