    Klinefelter syndrome/XXY (Child ment)

    MY dh was diagonosed w/male factor IF back in 98.
    We had speculated w/our IF doc what the cause could be but never came up w/anything. I saw a news show about a man w/KS/XXY. It is where a man has an extra X chromesome. I had forgotten the name of the syndrome but I had remembered the symptoms sounded like some that my dh has. The other day I was thumbing through my babys health book and found the name Klinefelter syndrome and instantly remembered that was what I had been scarching for.
    It has been a few years ago that I saw the show and my dh and I never pushed the issue nor did or IF doc about the cause of our IF but now that we have a son, I feel like we need to know if it is a chrosome abnormality.
    We would appreciate any and all info anyone here can give.
    Thanks so much.
    Valerie and Steve

    My vasectomy reversal baby (who is 18 months old now) has a similar type syndrome. XXXXY 49.

    I know quite a bit about the abnormality. Some XXY 47's can father babies, but for most, ifertility is the first clue that something is wrong.

    The more extra x's the more problems associated.

    If you would like info...email me, and I will send you links to some informational web sites.
