Hi. I am looking for any information, stories, or support for genetic issues/duplications. I just found out that I have a duplication at Xp 22.31. This was found after I had my 3rd miscarriage and discovered in the fetal study. Then I was tested and I have same duplication. I am 36 and healthy with some interesting health abnormalities but nothing that cant be dealt with or managed. It is not believed that the duplication had anything to do with my miscarriages-I have some other strange anomalies that probably were the cause. But we are now weighing our options of IVF to remove the potential duplication(PGD) or try again naturally. The geneticist broke it down to say that because I have the duplication and am 'normal' that it shouldn't be a problem. Also saying that they don't have enough information about the implications of this duplication. Which to me, felt like he was saying/thinking that if we go natural and pass the duplication down it would be more research for them regardless the effects it have on our baby. I'm a bit confused and looking for any information. The science world has very little information but when I started exploring Social Media sites I seems to find that Xp22.31 duplication may have some strong ties to mental and physical issues. We know having a baby is a gamble but I don't want to be gambling blind. Thanks ahead of time.

My son and I both have this duplication. He was born normal and healthy, but prematurely at 33 weeks. I have had 8 miscarriages and have been unable to have any more children since him.

How can I help? My husband and daughter have this and it is different in boys then girls. My son and I are not carriers. But I can tell you from other groups some people have bigger issues then we have. You can email me yolie1214@gmail.com I'm on Facebook carol pavone volkman and part of circle of moms. I just came across this on Google. I can honestly tell you my view point seeing how it is from both sides. Have a Blessed day carol

I have an adopted daughter that had duplicate XP 22.31. She has all sorts of problems. Would be interested in exchanging info.
