DES Info: A Twin DES Daughter shares her story

436 Views
Message 1 of 1

I am a twin and 68 yrs. old. I lost my twin sister in a couple of years ago from of vulvar cancer.

 

My mother was also a twin. Prior to having my sister and I, she also miscarried a boy and a girl(twins) at 4 1/2 months and then identical twin boys 2 years later. They lived for 4 days and died.

 

When I got pregnant in 1970, I asked my mother if she took that drug. She said No. But in those days they didn’t tell you, they just did it, which would have been in the late 40’s.

 

I have warned my daughter to get annual checkups, as I do also. She also had a miscarriage 9 yrs. ago, but since then has had 3 healthy children.

It’s a horrible drug!
