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

Talk to your doctor: Clomiphene alters hormonal balances in the body, especially of estrogen. This is how it works as an infertility drug. Endometriosis can be worsened by the presence of high levels of estrogens. Clomiphene use is relatively contraindicated in women with endometriosis. But again, you should talk to your doctor since only they know why you may still need to take the drug despite your condition. ...Read more

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?

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?

No, see doctor: The cervix doesn't really have a role in period bleeding or abnormal bleeding - that comes from uterine issues like fibroids or adenomyosis, or hormonal causes. The cervix can bleed from trauma or lesions in the cervix or cervical cancer, but it is not period bleeding. If you have had 4 episodes of bleeding in 8 weeks, you need to see a doctor for evaluation and treatment options. ...Read more

It is definitely not a cause of dysfunctional bleeding though, so you "may" have more than one condition going on. You need to work with your doctor to take the diagnosis another step. Good wishes. ...Read more

What are the causes of endometriosis?

Unknown: The top theories in order: 1) implants form from back-flow of menstrual endometrium through the tubes into the pelvis, 2) disease spreads through lymphatics and/or blood vessels, 3) 'coelomic metaplasia, ' in which normal cells change into endometriosis. The first two likely account for many cases. The arguments get fairly involved, but none of these theories is entirely satisfactory. ...Read more
