NTSAD - My partner isn’t Ashkenazi Jewish. Should we still have carrier screening?
Category: General Topics
Yes! Anybody could be a carrier. Even if your partner is not Jewish it is still possible that you are both carriers for the same recessive condition. Discuss screening options with your doctor or genetics professional (geneticist or genetic counselor) to determine the best screening method for you and your partner.
