Women’s Health and the Fragile X Premutation

August 9th, 2016

This booklet is designed to encourage women who are Fragile X premutation carriers to take control of their own health and to pass on this information to their families and if needed, health care professionals.

Based on current research, it covers topics such as the pattern of Fragile X inheritance in families, the importance of knowing your Fragile X status and CGG repeat count. It also covers FXPOI, FXTAS and some information on family planning.

FXAA would like to thank A/Prof Graves Allen and Prof Stephanie Sherman from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, for making this resource available to us.
