Diethylstilbestrol (DES) is a synthetic estrogen that was developed to supplement a woman's natural estrogen production. First prescribed by physicians in 1938 for women who experienced miscarriages or premature deliveries, DES was originally considered effective and safe for both the pregnant woman and the developing baby.
DES was taken off the market in 1971. My mom took DES while carrying me. It increases some cancer risks and potential problems in pregnancies.
I am just curious is anyone else here had taken DES or is a DES daughter or son?
