The Turner syndrome post

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I do feel really bad for the mother's losses.. I commented saying that. The I remembered something about Turner's:

Only girl can have Turner's, op said she had a son and daughter die from it... So is she lying?


Turner syndrome is a genetic condition in which a female does not have the usual pair of two X chromosomes.
Causes, incidence, and risk factors
The normal amount of human chromosomes is 46. Chromosomes contain all of your genes and DNA, the building blocks of the body. Two of these chromosomes, the sex chromosomes, determine if you become a boy or a girl. Females normally have two of the same sex chromosomes, written as XX. Males have an X and a Y chromosome (written as XY).
In Turner syndrome, cells are missing all or part of an X chromosome. The condition only occurs in females. Most commonly, the female patient has only one X chromosome. Others may have two X chromosomes, but one of them is incomplete. Sometimes, a female has some cells with two X chromosomes, but other cells have only one.
Turner syndrome occurs in about 1 out of 2,000 live births.

I have nothing to do... Which is why I read her post... I still had nothing to do, so I made my own post


Quoting OneToughMami:

Fuck people on this site will argue about anything! You don't believe her so move on. I am sure you have something better you could be doing right? Me personally? I have nothing to do which is why I had the time to reply to you.

You had three other children, so his sperm isn't that broken.

You'd likely lie bc you're an amateur writer. Just another one of your story creations. No mention of these babies on your page.

Odds are 1/2000 yet she had two consecutive cases?

No, dear, 1/2000 are BORN with turners. 3% of all conceptions have it, 99% of those are never BORN.



I had joined the military and began working in a motor pool that year (2010) before. All these factors ( the multitude of injects against the weirdest things) can affect how your body let's babies grow. also turners comes from the father, so my dh's sperm are broken ( which I wouldn't doubt).



Again why would I lie about this, of all things?

just want to know are you a dr? Probably not so how would you know she is lying. It's sad that there will always be people like you questioning everything when someone has gone through such a tough time already.

Quoting Anonymous:

Was it?  Because that wasn't my take on it.

Technically speaking, the writing was not very good.  In terms of the message, the whole thing just sounded kind of fictional.  It didn't sound like the way that a grieving mother would tell such a story.  Of course, some of the medical details that made no sense didn't help much.

Quoting Anonymous:

It was extremely well written... But it Just doesn't seem plausible



Quoting Anonymous:

I noticed that, too.  Honestly, I was already so creeped out by the way the whole thing was written that I just backed away slowly.

It's commonly known as Turner's, that's the recognizable name, and it may have been what the nurses told her, so it's understandable that she would call it that. Not something to accuse her of being a liar over, especially given the circumstances. Imagine the pain that you are causing if you are wrong, which is a high probability.

Quoting Anonymous:

So she should've called it Noonan not turner's


Quoting LucyHarper:

Theres a version of Turners called Noonan syndrome that occurs in males, but it's so similar that it's commonly just referred to as Turner's. It also has common symptoms that are consistent with what she described, like the webbed neck.

You're being dramatic. Get a grip.
