DES Info:  Historically, the recommended doses for DES during pregnancy…..

Historically, the pregnancy dosage recommendations began at five milligrams and increased to over one hundred milligrams per day. 


For purposes of illustration, comparing the current dosage of estrogen in a birth control pill with DES, a pregnant woman on DES was ingesting the estrogenic equivalent of hundreds of birth control pills daily. 


A child in utero would essentially be bathed in estrogen.  At those doses, its developing estrogen-sensitive reproductive organs in their embryonic formation would be over-stimulated and malformed by the excess of hormones!
