Wendy Engel asked 12 months ago

I am a DES daughter. My mother was prescribed the 1st synthetic estrogen in 1948 when pregnant with me. At age 21 I was told by my mother that I was a DES daughter and needed to be monitored for vaginal cancers every 6 mos. My health seems to have always been more fragile than others in my family. It seemed to worsen as I aged. I have lived with fibromyalgia for at least 40 years, but actually had exercise intolerance before that. I know that millions of children around the world were effected by Diethylstilbesterol in utero. I know that there have been correlations to various other problems, diseases,birth defects, etc. Anyone know anything??? Thanks.
