Two pre treatment cycles were compared with six consecutive treatment cycles of Ormeloxifene. All cases were given Ormeloxifene twice a week for 3 months then once a week for another 3 months. Follow up was done at 3 months and 6 months. Main outcome measures were menstrual blood loss. Result: Almost all patients had PBAC score less than 100, thus no menorrhagia following treatment. 11 patients developed amenorrhoea which is the most common side effect of Ormeloxifene. 82% of patients had decrease in endometrial thickness by more than 0.5 mm.
