This research study is designed to work in cooperation with another study being conducted by the National Cancer Institute. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is studying the effects of a drug called raloxifene on premenopausal women believed to have a high risk of developing breast cancer (98-C-0123).
In this study, researchers are interested in learning about the effects of raloxifene on the uterus and ovaries of the women participating in the NCI study. To do this researchers plan to conduct ultrasounds on the patients enrolled in the NCI study. In addition researchers plan to take samples of the lining of the uterus in these patients (endometrial biopsy) if found to be necessary.
The purpose of this study is to determine the reproductive effects of raloxifene on women who have normal functioning ovaries by taking ultrasounds of the ovaries and lining of the uterus (endometrium).
