Yes, its Hormone replace therapy. Because these girls won't go puberty. In order for them to go through puberty, they will have to get hormone replacement therapy.

Now suppose if these girls want to be pregant, then they will recieve donated egg or embryo; choice I. This would be true for Turner's syndrome as well. Why? What do they both have in common? Streak gonads.
