DES Daughters 50 per cent more likely to reach Menopause early

Pregnancy drug linked to an early menopause

DES Daughters 50 per cent more likely to reach Menopause early, Study says The Boston University researchers compared the age of menopause of 4,800 ‘DES daughters‘ with that of more 2,100 women whose mothers had not taken the drug.  The DES daughters were 50 per cent more likely to have reached menopause early.  And the more DES their mothers had taken, the greater the risk. Worst affected were those whose mothers had taken part in a DES trial in the Fifties ? these women were twice as likely to have reached menopause as others their age.
