I'm 36 and have been married to my husband for 3 years now and want to start a family in the near future. Unfortunately HD runs in his family, with his dad and aunt both having it. His dad, who is no longer with us, suffered with the disease for around 14 years. I'm terrified that this may also happen to him but we don't know if he has HD because he has been aftraid about getting tested and seeing the results.
This may be selfish of me but I can't start a family without knowing if he has HD first. I don't want to pass it on to my children. Can anyone advise what to do? He wants to start a family as well but he has refused to be tested.
