Drugs used for these disorders are expensive with side effects and do not show any improvement. Ormeloxifene (Centchroman) is a selective estrogen modulator synthesized by the Central Drug Research Institute, Lucknow. It has been previously used in patients with mastalgia and fibroadenomaand has shown promising results. This study is being undertaken to understand the role of centchroman as an effective treatment for mastalgia and ANDI.

The trial was with 170 women of age 20 - 40 years with complaints of mastalgia (with or without nodularity) or with those with fibroadenoma <4cm. The collected data was analyzed by using SPSS (Statistical Package for Social Sciences) Version 15.0 Results: The trial of 170 women showed that married, multiparous women between ages 36 - 40 were affected the most by mastalgia and fibroadenoma. The mean VAS score for mastalgiaat 3 months after the use of Centchroman suggest that centrchroman is effective in reducing the pain of mastalgia.
