DES Action USA Home Page
Consumer organization dedicated to informing MEN & WOMEN

DES Daughters Listserv and Online Support Group
DES daughters are women who's mothers took DES (diethylstilbestrol) while pregnant with them.

DES was supposed to prevent miscarriage and ensure a
healthy pregnancy, but by 1953 is was confirmed to be ineffective at best.
In 1971 it was linked to a rare form of gynecological cancer called clear cell
adenocarcinoma in the daughters exposed in utero.

National Cancer Institute - Questions and Answers About DES
It is now known that DES exposure is related to health problems in the
children of the women who took it, and in the women themselves.
If you were exposed to DES, you may need special health care.

DES (diethylstilbestrol)is a synthetic form of estrogen, a female hormone.
It was prescribed between 1938 and 1971 to help women with certain complications of pregnancy.
Use of DES declined in the 1960s after studies showed that it is not effective in preventing
pregnancy complications. When given during the first 5 months of a pregnancy,
DES can interfere with the development of the reproductive system in a fetus.
For this reason, although DES and other estrogens may be prescribed for some medical problems,
they are no longer used during pregnancy.

Women And The Holocaust
DEDICATED TO ALL THOSE WOMEN - Who were murdered while pregnant.
Holding little hands of children or carrying infants in their arms on the way to be gassed.
To the mothers who gave their children to be hidden, many never to find them again.

And to the lives of those few who survived and bravely carried on.

THE WOMEN'S ARMY CORPS
Over 150,000 American women served in the Women's Army Corps (WAC) during World War 11.

! .. If men can run the world, why can't they stop wearing neckties?
How intelligent is it to start the day by tying
a little noose around your neck? --Linda Ellerbee

! .. I'm not going to vacuum 'til Sears makes one you can ride on.
--Roseanne Barr

! .. I'm not offended by all the dumb blonde jokes because
I know I'm not dumb...and I also know that I'm not blonde. --Dolly Parton

! .. When mothers talk about the depression of the empty nest,
they're not mourning the passing of all those wet towels on the
floor, or the music that numbs your teeth, or even the bottle of
capless shampoo dribbling down the shower drain. They're upset
because they've gone from supervisor of a child's life to a spectator.
It's like being the vice president of the United States. --Erma Bombeck

! .. In two decades I've lost a total of 789 pounds.
I should be hanging from a charm bracelet. --Erma Bombeck
