As legal access to marijuana continues expanding across the U. New research from Duke Health suggests men in their child-bearing years should also consider how THC could impact their sperm and possibly the children they conceive during periods when they've been using the drug. Much like previous research that has shown tobacco smoke, pesticides, flame retardants and even obesity can alter sperm, the Duke research shows THC also affects epigenetics, triggering structural and regulatory changes in the DNA of users' sperm. Experiments in rats and a study with 24 men found that THC appears to target genes in two major cellular pathways and alters DNA methylation, a process essential to normal development. The researchers do not yet know whether DNA changes triggered by THC are passed to users' children and what effects that could have.

Fetal sex determination, i. Knowing the sex of the fetus does not tell you if it is affected by hemophilia, but it does provide useful information. If the fetus is male, CVS or amniocentesis can be offered to parents who wish to know whether he is affected with hemophilia. If a carrier chooses not to have CVS or amniocentesis, or if these tests are not available, doctors should plan labour and delivery to minimize the chance of bleeding in a male fetus. If the fetus is female, prenatal diagnosis is not necessary because, even if the female child is a carrier, there is very little risk of bleeding for the baby during labour and delivery.
