I just came across a statement in my book , while reading genetics, that haemophiliac females do not survive till birth (the reason not mentioned here why) . Before posting this question here I conducted quite a bit searching on the net but couldnt find any document on this. Can anyone tell me the reason why don't haemophiliac foetus make till birth ? I mean where is the problem, when a haemophiliac male having XhY can survive why not an XhXh female ?
Haemophiliac females are rare but they can survive just like affected males do. However, the case is slightly more complicated in women because of menstruation.
I could not find an article from any medical journal but this site seems authentic enough for a reference.
