If you get this information I'd love to have it.
My brother has children but I've been unable to conceive. I'm told that PCOS is very, very prominant in the Woodring lineage. I have an extreme case of it and hear that is common for the MO branch of the family.
PCOS is polycystic ovarian syndrome, also known as Stein-Leventhal Disorder. It affects steroid production, mostly in women and is passed from father to daughter. Women have excessive body/facial hair (hirsutism), subtle physical differences in reproductive organs, often are obese and have similar facial characteristics. Most affected are women with large brown eyes, brown hair, olive complexion. That physical description used to be a point of diagnosis but modern literature suggests that AA women or blondes can also have PCOS, depending on lineage. This condition causes identity problems, confidence issues and even sexual identity issues.
Boys/men with SLD are much less common but traits are smaller in statue and might have endocrine related issues, possibly be smaller in stature, ect...essentially the reverse of what happens to women.
I haven't seen anything on genetic disorders that might otherwise affect children.
