I had a missed m/c in august and just found out that the bub had an extra 15 chromosome -

trisomy 15 which is not compatable with life.


I have heard heaps about trisomy 21, 13 & 18 but not so much about
15 - is it rare - if it is rare is it "bad" - do i have an increased
risk of having it again?

can i be tested next preg for it???


I am 29 years old, will my age increase my chances of it happening again if we ttc in the next year?

Quoting Spacetits:
MOST cases of trisomy 15 is not inherited, and are just random. It's pretty low that it'd happen again. If you're worried you can see a genetic counselor.





this...... age and heredity usually isn't a factor w/that specific disorder
