Answer

Approximately 10-20% of females with Turner syndrome have some spontaneous puberty. Spontaneous estrogenization occurs more commonly in women with mosaic karyotypes and those karyotypes with an abnormal second X chromosome, such as 46,XXiq or 46,XXip. Reports exist of women with mosaic Turner syndrome becoming pregnant without in vitro fertilization.
