With this study, in which the incidence of pregnancy in classic galactosemia patients is studied, we aim to provide new insights to improve counselling. Our hypothesis is that the chance that a galactosemic woman with POI becomes pregnant is higher than the 5-10% that has been reported for women with POI due to other causes. Chance of spontaneous pregnancy will be evaluated through semi standardized interview in women with classic galactosemia aged 18 years or older. During the interview, questions will be asked regarding fertility and pregnancy.

    Will be assessed during semi-standardized interview

  • Menstrual history [ Time Frame: day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Will be assessed during semi-standardized interview

  • Hormonal replacement therapy usage [ Time Frame: day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Will be assessed during semi-standardized interview
