    Mother of four children I took bendectin all nine months with our son 1981, Six months with our daughter 1983.

    Son has been married 6 years - they are now in the process of adopting.
    Daughter has been married 4 years - She still hopes of having their own someday. Our daughter has polycystic ovary syndrome.
    I just need to know if I'm the reason for their fertility problems.

    I was given bendectin to take in my third month for nausea. That was back in 1973, I went 42 weeks before I had a feeling of this could be labour? My daughter was stillborn. They said she was dead inside me for about two weeks.Autopsy report said she was a perfect everything ,6 lb 15 oz baby girl.....but have no reason as to why she was stillborn.I often wondered about that drug...anybody else lost a stillborn baby while they were on bendectin?
