Abstract

We have conducted a multicenter obstetrical and gynecological survey of women in fragile X families. Included in the study were 131 gene carriers (39 with a full mutation and 92 with a premutation) and 109 noncarriers. Analysis indicated that higher numbers of fragile X gene carriers reported having irregular menses and other gynecological complications. As a group they also experienced cessation of menses prior to age 40 years at a significantly higher rate. The data appear to indicate that the FMR1 gene may play a role in the development and proliferation of oogonia.
