Abstract
OBJECTIVE
To determine the effects of a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM), raloxifene, on endometrium in postmenopausal women. METHODS: Double-blind randomized controlled study was designed for 138 healthy postmenopausal women to determine the effects of raloxifene on postmeonopausal endometrium. The women were randomly assigned to receive either placebo, or raloxifene HCl 60 mg/day for 6 months. Transvaginal ultrasound was done at baseline and at 6 months later. RESULTS: Mean endometrial thickness of normal postmenopausal women was 3.4 ( +/- 1.6) mm. Mean endometrial thickness was decreased by 0.2 mm in both groups, but with no statistical significance. CONCLUSION: Raloxifene 60 mg/day did not stimulate the endometrium after 6 months of use in postmenopausal women.
Key Words: Raloxifene, Endometrium, Postmenopause
