Hello Anisa, thank you for asking.
As you know, Turner syndrome is a congenital disorder in which a female sex only has 1 X chromosome. This occurs due to nondisjunction chromosomes or failure to separate when the formation of sperm cells or ovum cells from parents. Until now it was not clear, what risk factors increase the occurrence of Turner syndrome in the fetus.
One of the most problematic is fertility disorders in people with Turner syndrome. Unfortunately, even with routine hormonal therapy for years, it is generally very difficult for someone with Turner's syndrome to have offspring in a normal fertilization. This is due to people with Turner syndrome tend to experience a decrease or death of ovum cells quickly. The way that can be taken is by artificial insemination or often known as IVF. The insemination process can be done by:
Inserting unfertilized ovum cells into the fallopian tube (fallopian tubes).
Inserting ovum cells that have been fertilized by sperm, into the uterus. Also known as IVF (in vitro fertilization).
You can discuss this with the doctor who treats you. You can ask in detail what possibilities you can take and what are the risks and side effects.
Hopefully this information can be useful. Regards.
