  • first cousins having a child raises the risk of defects. BUT the increase in risk is only small and it's the same increase as when two non-cousins have sex and the woman is over 40

    • but what if both cousins are normal and not even carriers for diseases what then?

    • i think you can go and get checked out to see what your actual risk is. i'm just saying in general there's a slight increase in risk. i think it's like a 3% point increase
