Can clomaphene cause problems when I have endometriosis? Did clomaphene work or make endometriosis worse?

Have had 4 full periods in the last 8 weeks. Complex cyst in 1 ovary, endometriosis, adenomyosis. Can cervical problems cause periods to come earlier?

Good wishes. ...Read more

The first two likely account for many cases. The arguments get fairly involved, but none of these theories is entirely satisfactory. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Genetics: We are now learning that genes have a significant role in determining who gets endo, and how severe it is. Somewhere between 10-20% of women with endo have bowel involvement. Rectal and sigmoid locations are the most frequent sites for bowel endo, and it causes pain with bms all month long. You usually can't see endo on colonoscopy so many women aren't diagnosed by GI docs to whom they're referred. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, it can: Endometriosis can and does interfere with ovulation as well as fallopian tube motility (the ability to conduct the fertilized egg to the uterus).
