The Quick and Easy Guide to Turner Syndrome :

  1. Is your daughter much shorter than other children her age?
  2. Did she have puffy hands and feet when she was born?
  3. Does she have extra skin on both sides of her neck (known as webbing)?
  4. If she is a teenager, did she develop breasts late or not at all?
  5. Did she not start her menstrual periods or did they stop?
  6. Are you much shorter than other women?
  7. Did you fail to develop breasts or start your menstrual periods at the same time as other girls your age?
  8. Did you develop breasts and begin menstruating, but your menstruation stopped while you were still a young woman?
  9. Do you, or did you have extra skin on both sides of your neck (known as webbing)?
  10. Have you found it difficult to fall pregnant?

If you answered yes to any of these questions you, or your daughter, could have a condition known as Turner Syndrome. Even if only some of these features exist, you or your daughter may still have Turner Syndrome. Take this information to your local hospital or doctor, and suggest that a test be done for this condition.
