Is oligomenorrhea associated with DES exposure ?
1979 Study Abstract
The menstrual histories of 218 patients exposed in utero to diethylstilbestrol (DES) were compared with those of 158 control subjects.
- No significant differences were revealed in the complaint of menstrual irregularities at either the initial or follow-up examination.
- Age at menarche was the same in both groups, and was the same as found in the United States as a whole.
