Babies born with this blood disorder are anemic and require repeated blood transfusions to survive and its hard for them to survive with it. A person who is carrying the gene of thalassemia major may not always manifest the disease to the born baby and is then known as a thalassemia minor. If both the partner, husband, and wife both have the gene of thalassemia major then, there is a 1 in 4 chance that the baby will have thalassemia major blood disorder. However, prenatal testing and medical tests can be carried out to ascertain the possibility and a diseased fetus could be aborted directly if needed. If one partner has thalassemia major gene and the other doesn't then there is no way the baby can get thalassemia major blood disorder. Therefore, a couple must be medically tested for this disease. If you are thinking that how to get pregnant fast then firstly go for these medical tests.

This is really helpful. My sister is also trying to get pregnant. I would ask her to get these tests done. Furthermore, hemoglobin (anemia), thyroid screen (TSH test) and blood sugar (diabetes) tests should also be taken under consideration.

I got my complete hormonal profile done a week ago and was detected with thyroid. It's really important to get yourself diagnosed before getting pregnant so that potential risks to baby can be reduced.
