Clomid clomiphene is also referred to as clomiphene citrate. It’s an oral drug, which is mostly used for the treatment of certain kinds of female infertility.
Clomid clomiphene acts by making your body believe that your estrogen levels are lower than they really are, which makes the pituitary gland to increase the release of follicle stimulating luteinizing hormone.
Increased levels of FSH make the ovary to create an egg follicle, or several follicles, that will develop and be released in the process of ovulation. High levels of luteinizing hormone cause ovulation.
Clomid is usually prescribed by the primary care doctors before the couple may visit a fertility expert for more specialized treatment. Some experts in reproduction also prescribe Clomid.
Take 50mg (1 pill) of generic Clomid for 5 days consecutively in the beginning of your periods. Start the treatment on the 5th day of the menstrual cycle.
You should take 1-4 pills at the same time every day, depending on your reaction to the drug. We advise you to start with the minimal dose and increase it every month if necessary.
Some physician will ask you to do the blood test to measure hormone levels or make a transvaginal ultrasound to monitor the growth of your ovarian follicles.
It will help them define when it’s better to have sex or have an IUI, and choose the proper dose for your next cycle.
You shouldn’t take generic Clomid for more than 3-6 months, as the chance of successful pregnancy decreases through the constant use. It may take several cycles to find out which dose is the most suitable for you.
Indications for use
Clomid is usually prescribed to women with PCOS, which may lead to irregular or no menstrual periods.
Not every patient will react to this drug. Women with premature ovarian failure, also called early menopause, and patients with anovulation caused by the low weight or hypothalamic amenorrhea are unlikely to ovulate on cheap Clomid.
Such females may buy Clomid online and require more intensive therapy.
Clomid is generally covered by the medical insurance, while other fertility drugs aren’t. If you do not have health insurance for your drug, or are can’t afford, ask your doctor for the other options.
Clomid is one of the cheapest drug for infertility, practically in comparison with other drugs such as IVF.
Clomid is an oral drug, and therefore much safer than the other treatments.
It can be prescribed by your physician, and you won’t have to go to the reproductive expert.
Clomid has only a few adverse effects and it’s usually well-tolerated by the patients.
While this drug is usually very safe, there are some adverse effects that you should know about. These are:
There is a increased risk of having multiple births during the treatment with Clomid women health (about 7% for twins, and less than 0.5% for triplets). You must ask your physician about this risk. He/she may advise closer monitoring if you don’t want to have more than 1 child.
As Clomid may affect your estrogen levels, it may thin your uterine lining to be thin and decrease the quantity of your cervical mucus.
Due to the effect of estrogen, cervical mucus becomes thin and watery, allowing the sperm cells to reach the fallopian tubes.
During the treatment with Clomid, estrogen levels reduce, making the cervical mucus thicker than normal. This can reduce the capacity of the sperm to get into the uterus and fallopian tubes.
