To determine whether there is a difference in the pregnancy rate in women with Turner's syndrome (45,X) in an ovum donation program compared with women with other causes of premature ovarian failure.


Retrospective chart review of women with Turner's syndrome (n = 11) and premature ovarian failure (n = 38) in a donor ovum program using variable dose and duration of E2 replacement therapy for endometrial preparation and using only transvaginal ultrasonographic assessment of endometrial response before ET.


The pregnancy rates in Turner's syndrome patients and control subjects were 27% and 25%, respectively. Pregnancy rates were higher in the first cycle than in subsequent cycles for both groups (40% versus 8%).


Turner's syndrome patients given a variable dose of estrogen, for endometrial preparation, with response assessed exclusively by transvaginal ultrasonography demonstrated pregnancy rates equal to patients with other causes of premature ovarian failure.
