Unless they’re undergoing fertility issues, your DNA is your personal story, not your partners; it’s yours. If you hear about infertility in your family and know that you’ve got the bad gene, then it’s up to you whether you want to share that information, but you don’t have to. If you are empathetic towards a father or family member, it’s your decision to share that at the end of the day. We won’t share that. Doctors can’t share that. It’s your DNA, so it’s up to you whether you share that information with another family member who’s undergoing infertility, and you know them well.
Genetic test results - should I share it with my family members?
If you are suffering from infertility and have undergone genetic tests to study your genes, the results of such a test are confidential. Only you have access to the test results.
