If both you and your reproductive partner are carriers of the same autosomal recessive condition, with each pregnancy you have a
- 1 in 4 (25%) chance of having a child affected with that disease.
- 1 in 4 (25%) chance of having a child who is not affected by the disease and not a carrier
- 2 in 4 (50%) chance of having a child who is a carrier of the disease
If a woman is identified as a carrier of an X-linked condition, she has a 1 in 2 (50%) chance with each pregnancy to pass the variant onto her child. If a male child inherits the disease-causing variant, he will be affected with the X-linked condition.
