Abstract

Abstract. Uterine anomalies were demonstrated by hystero‐salpingography (HSG) in 4 of 5 diethylstilbestrol (DES) exposed young women with fertility disturbances. The anomalies included malformed uterine cavities and cervical incompetence. It is suggested that HSG in DES exposed women with fertility disturbances be performed early in the process of infertility investigation and cerclage should be considered when uterine anomalies are demonstrated. Tubal pregnancy should be ruled out by ultrasonography early during pregnancy in DES‐exposed women. 1981 Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand
