  1. I was born in the late 1940’s, the only child of a 36-year-old mother who was obsessed with her pregnancy. I don’t have the medical records but I fear that her possible use of DES just to be sure, resulted in penis reduction for me. Dad was normal. My sex drive and sperm count have been good. Is this a common side effect?
