Symptoms of Chromosomal Abnormalities

Back to Document

by Walsh B
 
Symptoms are the result of problems in the genetic structure of a baby’s chromosomes. Chromosomes are the packages of genes and other DNA found in the nucleus of a cell.
In a couple attempting to conceive, the occurrence of at least two miscarriages may be another symptom of chromosomal abnormality. Talk to your doctor about conducting an investigation of your chromosomes. This investigation comes back normal in most cases. If the results are not normal, you and your partner should meet with a geneticist.
