This 1981 study showed that fetal wastage is high in DES Daughters.

Abstract

Obstetrics and gynecology, Volume 58 – Issue 1, July 1981.

The reproductive performance of 106 patients exposed in utero to diethylstilbestrol by maternal ingestion is described.

Fetal wastage is high, apparently because of spontaneous abortion during the first and second trimesters.

Recommendations – see image below – are made for preconception counseling of exposed progeny to increase fetal salvage.
