Hx of 4 diagnosed chromosomal pregnancies in a row trisomy 22, 18, 13 & mono 21. I'm 39 yrs old. Is there hope of a normal pregnancy using my own eggs?
Hope yes, but..: Remember, the ancient greeks said that hope was the last evil in pandora's box.. Your history sounds horrible and I am very sorry. There is always a chance of normal pregnancy with your own eggs, however i would recommend genetic counseling and ivf with preimplantation genetic diagnosis in your case (or donor eggs).

Down Syndrome: Trisomies (3 instead of 2 of a certain chromosome) are most common. Down is caused by an extra copy of chromosome 21. Patients usually have lower iq, shortened lifespans and specific facial and anatomic features. Edwards syndrome involves an extra copy of 18. The most common in utero is 16, though spontaneous miscarriage rates are very high. Patau syndrome (extra 13) also has a high mortality. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Baby may be abnormal: If a person is missing a piece of chromosome 15, that missing piece probably got attached to another chromosome, thus allowing her to function normally enough to use this healthtap website. Unfortunately, both chromosomes (the one missing a piece and the one that received the missing piece) are abnormal. Offspring are likely to receive one or both of the defective chromosomes.

Error in formation: During formation of the egg , the chromosome (c) pairs that make up the normal cell separate and each egg is supposed to have 1/2 of a pair. If a 13 pair does not separate, three rather than a pair of 13's will form when the egg & sperm join. Having an extra 13 in every cell of the fetus confuses the fetal development. Miscarriage or birth defects often occur. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Klinefelter Syndrome: Hi, Klinefelter Syndrome, or XYY syndrome is a syndrome where males have an extra Y chromosome, which makes them 47 XYY rather than 46 XY. It is not a sex-linked, autosomal dominant, nor autosomal recessive disorder. The inclusion of the extra Y chromosome is thought to be a random event, even in cases of 47 XYY mosaicism.
