Infertility treatments for women who have turner's syndrome

Hi, my husband and I are trying to get pregnant but I have Turner's syndrome and I have some questions about getting pregnant when I have turner's syndrome.

1)I'm on birth control for hormone replacement therapy because of my trurner's syndrome (because it causes my body to not make certain hormones my body needs), should I get off of it before pregnancy?
2) Is it possible for me to become pregnant on my own at all, or is oocyte donation the only way? I was told it was possible but rare that I could get pregnant on my own even with this condition that makes me infertile.
3)What health checks do I have to have before getting pregnant with this condition?
4) How are turner syndrome pregnancies different from normal pregnancies?

Welcome An_241188!

The questions you're asking are really good ones. However, you'll need to discuss them with a perinatologist and/or a geneticist. They're the experts who will know how to answer your questions.

Best wishes on your trying to conceive journey, and please update us if you have a chance,
