The FlickrDES Researchphoto set features a selection of graphs, stats and the 2011 AFSSAPS DES survey report from France about the adverse effects of Diethylstilbestrol, the synthetic oestrogen prescribed to millions of pregnant women around the world decades ago in the mistaken belief that it would reduce the risk of complications during pregnancy.

  1. Is it possible that since my mother was administered DES while pregnant with me that it would cause me to go thru early menopause at 36, on a natural basis?

  2. I am a DES daughter. That has been confirmed. I spent both pregnancies in bed. What happened to research? I later developed Hodgkins Lymphoma. Is there any relationship?

    1. I’m a DES son and had Pituitary tumour in 2001. I do rank as a vary high chance that it was caused by DES but only one doctor has said ‘It may well be so’, he was a brave young doctor.
