Turner Syndrome Support Group

Turner syndrome encompasses a number of chromosomal abnormalities, of which monosomy X, is the most common. It occurs in 1 out of every 2,500 female births. Instead of the normal XX sex chromosomes for a female, only one X chromosome is present and fully functional. In Turner syndrome, female sexual characteristics are present but underdeveloped.

    Lack of affection in a relationship

    Hi, first off, I hope I don't offend anyone. I don't have Turner Syndrome myself but my girlfriend does and I have no idea where to look for advice. We have dated on and off for about a year but in November we committed to being boyfriend and girlfriend. We are both 20 btw.

    So, I'm 18 years old, and was just diagnosed with TS about two months ago. It was definitely a pretty big shock. I'm probably going to be rambling, but if you read it all, some advice or encouragements would be really awesome. I found out about the TS diagnosis about two months ago, and everything seems to have changed. My personal life has been sort of a mess here lately as well. Once I found...
  • Hi all, I posted here once before a year or two back but I felt I needed to do it again. I don't have anyone in my life who understands my problems so this is the closest I've got. Beware: ramblings of an emotional teenager.I'm sure this isn't a new topic, but it's the infertility that's been killing me lately, even at only 17 years old. Everyone tells me I can always adopt, etc etc I'm sure you...

    Hi all, I'm 26 (almost 27!) and I was diagnosed with TS when I was 5 months old. I was fortunate enough to have strong support and good medical care, and although I have a heart defect, I have never had any serious medical complications from my TS. *knocks on wood*Lately, though, the infertility issue has been eating at me. I've known since I was a teenager that starting a family was going to...
