Hello Catherine I am so grateful to have found your website. I have been researching and reading for years, but have never found anything as informative as you website. I could relate to your personal story. I am a DES daughter (mother took synthetic estrogen while pregnant) and I was born having a period. By the time I was 14, I was on birth control pills to regulate non-stop bleeding along with a prescription pain pill and a diuretic. Two difficult pregnancies with monthly periods, one which landed me in ICU on the critical list. At 26, I underwent a five and a half hour surgery to remove a gangrenous.
