Every drug that has been recalled by the FDA... was first proven to be safe and effective by the #FDAFact: In 1947, the FDA approved the use of DES to prevent adverse pregnancy outcomes in women with a history of miscarriage.

Fact: In 1971, The FDA removed prevention of miscarriage as an indication for DES use and added pregnancy as a contraindication for DES use. Yes you read well “contraindication“!
