Say a normal woman, whose father had hemophilia, marries a normal man. Do you know what would be the probability that their first child will have hemophilia and could you explain it to me? I'm clueless

  1. Since hemophilia is a rare disease and statistics on this disease are not common knowledge it would be best for you to contact a specialist. Hemophilia is complicated in genetics since females rarely get the disease but are more often carriers. However testing always needs to be done to determine their chances of passing on the disease. Their chances of passing it on can depend on the type of hemophilia also.
    Information of the question you asked would be hard to find on the web. You can contact a specialist to discuss your question or ask for a site to get the information.
    I hope this helps.
