Question Treatment for infertility in a Turner patient !!!

I came across a question which says the probable treatment for turner is oocyte donation, is it possible for them to maintain pregnancy after oocyte donation and external HRT, coz as we all know turner's estrogen is low, if HRT is given will the FSH come down,

Thanks in advance

Turner syndrome patients can conceive if they receive estrogen and progestins which can proliferate uterine wall so the fertilized zygote can be implantated ..but they can not ovulate because of streaked ovaries..so invitro fertilization is the best tt..(i read it somewhere in uworld)
