Is normal conception possible if chromosomal abnormality?

Please login or register to post on this thread.

I am 31 years old and was diagnosed with missed abotion in 11th week of pregnancy. After D7C,the fetus was sent for karyotyping test. The repot says the fetus had abnormal cytogentic profile with monosomy of chromosome no 22. Now the doctor has asked us both to go for karotyping to check if any of the parents had chromosomal abnormality. The report will come in 20 days.and this is giving me sleepless nights. In case any of us is diagnosed with chromosomal abnormality, then is there any way ou that we can have a normal pregnancy in future and a healthy baby? pls help me as its the most difficult time of my life at this moment.


Abnormalities happen as a result of an accident, most of the time. Its a typo in the DNA that gets carbon copied as the child develops. Most of the time it isn't the parents fault and is one of those things that just happens. Its standard practice to test the parents because the more data the doctors have the better they will understand genetics.

Unless your a soldier, in the military, or live in a country where there was a war recently, you shouldn't have anything to worry about. If this does apply to you, then inform the doctor that you have long term exposure to depleted uranium.

I did a little research and this is the only thing I could find on 22. But its not a mono, but rather refers to a deletion.


2q11 deletion syndrome (deletion on chromosome 22): About 1 in 4,000 babies is born with deletions in a specific region of chromosome 22 (4). These deletions cause a variety of problems that can include heart defects, cleft lip/palate, immune system abnormalities, characteristic facial features and learning disabilities. Certain combinations of these features are sometimes called DiGeorge or velocardiofacial syndrome. Individuals with this disorder have a 50-percent chance of passing the chromosomal abnormality on to their offspring with each pregnancy (4).


Thanks a lot 4 ur answer.


No problem, Im glad to help.

You shouldn't have trouble having a normal happy kid. Its very rare for abnormalities to have been caused by inheritance. It does happen, but most of the time its just one of those things that happens. A fate, or luck sort of thing.
