The researcher is Kriss Fearon, of De Montfort University in Leicester.
I'm part of the Centre for Reproduction Research in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences.
Before I joined De Montfort, I volunteered and worked in the fertility field for nearly 20 years.
I am exploring the way that women with TS make decisions about how to have a family and what they think about the options open to them.
I have also talked to mothers of girls with TS to see how they have handled their daughter’s fertility issues within the family, and what they think of their daughter’s future reproductive options.
I hope to publish journal articles to improve our understanding of how women with Turner Syndrome make decisions about how to have a family.
I also plan to work with the Turner Syndrome Support Society to consider ways of improving support and information for women with TS and their families as they go through this process.
