Should women with Turner syndrome be allowed to carry their own pregnancies?
Turner syndrome (TS) is one of the most common sex chromosomal disorders affecting 25 to 50 females out of 100,000 females (1). Most women with TS are infertile because of an accelerated depletion of ovarian follicles causing premature ovarian insufficiency (POI). Among all main characteristics of TS, including short stature, cardiovascular malformations and hearing problems, women with TS report that POI and infertility are the greatest challenges that they face (2). The inability to have biological children remains a central source of pain and hardship for TS women of all ages across their lifespan (2).
