Does Turner Syndrome Have An Effect On A Lack Of Sexual Intimacy
Partial: Turner syndrome occurs when a girl only has one x chromosome. Mosaic turner syndrome occurs when some cells in a girl have two x chromosomes and the rest have one x chromosome. Women with mosaic turner syndrome can have all the same problems as women with turner syndrome, but the severity tends to be milder. Short stature, sterility, heart disease, and learning problems can all occur. ...Read more
Genetic testing: For any suspected condition should be performed as soon as possible, even from birth. ...Read more
Can Not Answer Yet: This question can not be answered without more information. Are you male or female? Are you shorter than average? If female have you regular periods? And more. Why are you concerned? ...Read more
Depends on situation: Many issues are present & evident from birth & some become apparent over time. Kidney & heart defects can be looked for at birth before problems arise. Poor school performance, short stature and lack of sexual development will be evident later. With proper attention to patient needs these kids can live a comfortable life. ...Read more
No: In my opinion, there is no reason for you to disclose any health issues to a prospective employer unless there is a very real possibility that a health issue would impact your ability to carry out the duties of the position. If there is any question about that, review details of the americans with disabilities act to see what your legal rights are. ...Read more
Easier ways to tell: While ultrasound can give some hopeful results, you can get a definitive analysis by doing the NIPP. This test was developed early on to verify paternity, but it uses fetal cells that can be found in mother's blood as early as 8 weeks. These can be used for a full chromosome assessment including Turner syndrome. ...Read more
Yes: All patients with known turner's syndrome are screened for this, in fact. ...Read more
Timing of error: At conception, the embryo begin duplicating the chromosomes (chms) donated by egg & sperm to form the 23 chromosome pairs. If one x chm didn't make it, you will only have a turner pattern (45 chms xo). If a normal xx pattern starts but an x is lost after several divisions the mosaic is created by having one normal 46xx & another 45xo cell lines replicating throughput the body. ...Read more
Perhaps: Females with turner's syndrome have only one normal x chromosome and have amenorrhea, no ovulation, and are sterile. There is a condition called mosaic where there may be a defective or partial x chromosome along with a normal one. Now, with modern technology such as oocyte donation some women with turner's may carry a pregnancy. There are other risks, however. ...Read more
Online resources: Turner syndrome is caused by absence of one of the female x chromosomes and can have several effects on growth and development. The genetics home reference is a good source for information on chromosomal conditions: http://ghr. Nlm. Nih. Gov/condition/turner-syndrome. Two other good sources are the turner syndrome society and foundation: http://turnersyndrome. Org ; www.Turnersyndromefoundation. Org. ...Read more
Variation of Theme: Most females have 2 x chromosomes as part of their genetic make-up in all cells. In classic ts females are born with 1 x chromosome in most or all cells. Patients who are mosaic are those who may be missing just part of an x or they could have some cells with 2 x's and others with only 1 x. There are other variations. Mosaic ts patients are usually not as severely affected as classic ts patients. ...Read more

Female: Turner syndrome is a woman who only has one x chromosome instead of 2 x chromosomes that a female usually has. This will result in decreased or absent secondary sex characteristics (such as breat development). These women usually do not have periods and are infertile. Turner syndrome is always a female though. This is distinctly different from being a hermaphrodite. ...Read more
Nerve pain syndrome: This is an uncommon nerve pain/dysfunction syndrome that usually begins with shoulder pain on one side and neurologic changes of reflexes and weakness involving the involved muscles of the arm.

Both are caused by : Genetic accidents. Down Syndrome occurs in a fetus with a full or partial extra copy of Chromosome 21, with characteristic features, congenital anomalies, hypotonia & Intellectual Disability. Turner Syndrome occurs in a female fetus with an incomplete or missing X Chromosome, with characteristic features, Non-Verbal Learning Disabilities, short stature & infertility. See each disorder's website ...Read more
Can you tell me how can the chromosomal conditions, trisomy x, xyy syndrome and turner syndrome differ?
Good online sites: Xxx and xyy have relatively little impact on those who have them and are usually incidental findings -- this is actually true despite the hoopla over xyy. I have three physician colleagues who have turner's xo and do fine. http://ghr.nlm.nih.gov/ is really good (thanks uncle sam). ...Read more
Turner Syndrome: Turner syndrome occurs when there is one x chromosome missing. Boys get y chromosome from the fatther and x from mother, girls get x from the father and x from the mother. In turner syndrome there is complete absence of one x chromosome, it can be because of error in fathers sperm, or an error in mothers egg. So it can be from fathers sperm or mother egg, resulting in all cells in body with only one x ch. ...Read more
