Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology

In general, in each subsequent pregnancy, the chance of having another pregnancy affected by Turner syndrome would not be increased given that it occurs due to a random error in the splitting of chromosomes during the creation of sperm usually, though sometimes also the egg. Unlikely to recur in a first time case.
