Carriers of autosomal recessive disorders are typically healthy individuals who can pass on their genetic variants to their children.

If both partners are identified as carriers of the same genetic disorder, they have a 25% chance of having a child affected with that disorder with each pregnancy.
Women who are carriers of X-linked conditions are typically healthy individuals who have a 50% chance of having a son who is affected with the condition or a 50% chance of having a daughter who is a carrier also.

However, in some cases the carrier woman may still have a mild form of the respective genetic condition.
