Do you mean in terms of having IVF and the possible outcome for the baby?

I have schizophrenia and was told there's no way they can screen for it.

Yes this would be the case, not for schizophrenia though as there's no screening, however studies can show the linking within a family, for example GWAS studies identified several SNPs in a family.

Genetic counselling process of helping people understand and adapt to the genetic, medical, psychological and familial implications of the genetic contributions to disease.
However this is only for genetic disorders which can be screened for and detected, schizophrenia cannot

I'm a bit confused - if you know schizophrenia can't be screened for, why did you make this thread?

I am currently getting my parents' DNA screened so my spouse and I can have a child. My schizophrenia came up during an appointment and the doctor was just like "nope can't do anything. Next question". I don't think there are counseling options for it.
