Can girls with Turner Syndrome get pregnant?
baby_vicky17 posted:
Im 18 years old. I was diagnosed with Turner Syndrome at the age of 13 and got treatment (estrogean pills and birth control). This summer I recently had my first cycle. My boyfriend and I were wandering if I could get pregnant still. And if I can how dangerous would it be for me and the baby? Because I have heart issues as well.

Welcome baby_vicky17 and thanks for posting.

Your question is a good one, but our information on Turner Syndrome is very limited. This is something that's very important to discuss with your doctor.

Because of your heart problems, make sure to talk about it with your doctor before getting pregnant. He or she may have the answers, or refer you to a specialist to get the answers. Pregnancy puts a strain on your heart and many other organs and body systems, so it's important to find out more since you may be ovulating.

Best wishes and let us know how you're doing,
