Patient Corner

The couples anxiety about the hereditary chances of the disease, painfully led them to decide not to have a child. They aborted four times and later on totally avoided sexual contact to avoid pregnancy.

  • I learnt this when I was educating them about the disease and our integrative treatment during counseling
