Affected women[edit]

The text mentions that men who have Becker's can have children. Also the example picture clearly shows this, but nowhere in the web is there any information about women having Becker's. Why is that? Certainly it would be possible for a carrier female and affected male to have children together and hence their daughter might have two affected X-chromosomes. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:37, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

The case of a carrier woman and a man with bmd is very improbable so there is probably no research. and i think in general in x-linked genetic disorders female embryons with mutation on both X results in early abortion, i remember my genetics professor saying it but i don't know why. -- (talk) 15:08, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
