 Post subject: Klinefelter syndrome
PostPosted: Fri Mar 27, 2020 12:38 am 
Hi
Im a regular user gone anon.
Im pregnant and got the harmony bloods done just to see all was ok but just got a call from senior member at the hospital to say bloods have come back as baby having Klinefelter syndrome.
They said an anmio would confirm for sure but they cant do it at the minute with the coronavirus.

Im just wondering has anyone any experience of this. My first reaction is thinking of terminating which i thought i would never do but im in the middle of battling for our youngest to get services who has additional needs and im scared to deal with all this. Only thing is i dont know how i will go about this here in Ireland and during the coronavirus.

I am so sorry you are going through this. I have some experience of the anxiety you’re probably feeling.
Could you try some private clinics for the amnio?

I don't have any experience here but Klinefelter Syndrome is a mild syndrome and most of those who have it don't even know it.

I'm sorry to hear this. I've no experience, it seems like it's not a well known condition maybe you could also post somewhere like mumsnet and reach a larger audience?
Have the hospital offered you any appointment to discuss your options further?

Hope you can get access to proper medical advice. I think it is very unfair for any of us to start posting our opinions on a syndrome. The op needs proper medicsl support not peoples personal opinions from dr. google.

The well woman clinic or similar might be able to advise the best options open to you?
