Primary infertility in women exposed to diethylstilboestrol in utero, British journal of obstetrics and gynaecology, NCBI PubMed PMID 3707881, 1986 May.
In a selected group of 40 women who had been exposed to diethylstilboestrol in utero, 18 conceived without difficulty and 22 had primary infertility.
Among those with primary infertility there was a significantly higher rate of anatomical structural defects and a greater tendency for menstrual disorders than in those without infertility.
Thirteen (59%) of the women with primary infertility conceived, most after treatment with ovulation stimulating drugs.
Spontaneous abortion and tubal pregnancy were frequent (47% and 10% respectively) and similar in both fertility groups.
Of 13 infertile women examined, 4 (31%) had mild hyperprolactinemia–a hithero unreported finding for such women.
