Relationship Between Infant Defects And Age Of Marriage?
Are disabilities in infants (for example polydactyly) related to the age of marriage that is too young? like my brother who was married, aged 15 years (male and female), their children are polydactic
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Congenital defects or birth defects experienced by babies, in the medical world, are also called congenital disorders. Congenital abnormalities are abnormal conditions in the health of a baby that he gets since he is in the womb. There are many forms of congenital abnormalities, including:
Anencephaly or absent brain and skull formation Anophthalmia and microphthalmia, or babies have very small eyes in one or both of them, or have no eyes at all Polydactyly and syndactyly, or an excessive number of fingers and fingers that connect or have membranes between them Heart defects congenital, like a hole that doesn't close between the heart chambers and the like
Regarding your question, there are many factors that can be associated with congenital disorders, including:
Genetic disorders Marriage parents in blood Pregnant too young or under 20 years of age Lack of nutrition or malnutrition in pregnant women Infection during pregnancy Exposure to cigarette smoke, alcohol, radiation and certain drugs during pregnancy
Of course, with the position that is only related, it is not certain that every pregnant woman who has the above factors will definitely give birth to a child with congenital defects. Regarding your nephew's condition, polydactyly can be resolved by taking him to a surgeon. Therefore, it is better if before marriage or having children, the couple should consult beforehand in the form of a prenuptial consultation with a doctor to be more able to prepare for marriage and have more knowledge about marriage itself in terms of health. Hopefully answered your question.
That's all, hope it helps.
