    Turner's Syndrome

    Hey,
    I am 19 years old, and I have a generic disorder called Turner's syndrome. Basically, I am missing part of one of my X chromosomes. This means I can't produce the hormones I need to grow or go through puberty on my own. Luckily, I have a well-off family who was able to provide me with growth hormones and estrogen patches to help me develop. I have a few internal abnormalities that come with the syndrome. I have a bicuspid aortic valve, as well as a dilated left subclavian artery. I have no eggs, so my period is medically induced each month. I also have high frequency hearing loss, and I'm at risk of diabetes. Let me know if any of you guys have Turner's syndrome!
