X's Q & A

Conceiving with Turners Syndrome 45X

Yes, but this is very rare because the absence of the second sex chromosome causes premature degeneration of the egg cells and complete loss of all egg cells often happens before sexual maturity. Also, many of the egg cells are going to be chromosomally abnormal. Some women's with Turner's have a less severe form where only some of their cells are 45x (mosaic). These are the patients that have a chance at having a child naturally but it is very rare even in these cases. Most women with Turner's syndrome require in vitro fertilization with egg donation in order to have children.
