Hello,
Women with Turners syndrome have menstrual problems and premature ovarian failure.FSH-stimulated oocyte retrieval and IVF can be carried out before predicted POF. Collected oocytes can be cryopreserved using vitrification, and stored till  pregnancy is desired. In women who have undergone POF oocyte donation is an effective infertility treatment for Turner women. Adequate hormonal replacement therapy before IVF is necessary. Only one embryo at a time should be transferred particularly to these women since they are prone for risks like hypertension and aortic dissection. Consult an expert infertility specialist. Keep me posted.
Best wishes and regards!
