Clomid is a drug for the oral intake intended to stimulate ovulation. Start taking the drug on the 5th day of your cycle and continue the treatment for 5 days. The dosage depends on the reason(s) of the diseases, outcomes of the previous treatment, etc.
The common initial dose is 50 mg and if ovulation doesn’t happen the dose can be tripled.
Clomid clomiphene was originally intended as a birth control pill when scientists discovered its ovulation triggering characteristics.
In contrast to the follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) that stimulates the ovaries directly, Clomid effects occur at the hypothalamus.
Clomiphene acts by binding with estrogen receptors at the hypothalamus. When they are occupied, the hypothalamus releases lower estrogen and thus produces GnRH, which makes the pituitary to enhance FSH production.
Too high amount of FSH production leads to increased follicular development.
It is commonly used by gynecologists, usually for longer than necessary. Numerous researches show that it is most likely to be effective in the first six ovulatory cycles and pregnancies reduce significantly after 3 cycles.
If clomiphene has not acted within this period, the doctor will possibly prescribe other therapies, for example IUI or IVF.
Our experts in fertility often see people who have used clomiphene for about 1 year. Prolonged use enhances the chances of adverse effects and is costly.
We also note women taking drugs whose husbands have not had a sperm test to exclude male infertility.
No fertility medicine, will not work if there are no “proper” and “quality” semen available. A sperm test is always required before using ovulation inducing drugs.
Older patients, or those with decreased ovarian reserve, must not “waste” the precious treatment time with clomiphene treatment and buy Clomid online.
Fertility can reduce very fast in these women and the most efficient treatment must be introduced as soon as possible to increase the chance of getting pregnant. Older patients should see an expert in infertility as soon as possible to get the most suitable treatment.
Some experts in infertility are starting the ovulation inducing treatment with such medicines as Femara (letrozole). It doesn’t have some of the side effects caused by the use of cheap Clomid, like the reduction of cervical mucus, thinning of the endometrial lining or irritation.
The rate of twins is 2-3% with the use of Femara in comparison to 10% with the intake of Clomid clomiphene. The addition of FSH injections to any of these drugs can enhance the risk of multiple pregnancies.
Depending on the certain reason(s) for infertility, IUI with FSH ovulation induction may follow generic Clomid failure.
There are epidemiological research, which suggest if clomiphene is used longer then 1 year, there may be an increase in the rate of ovarian cancers. This is a “small” association but must be taken into account when prescribing Clomid women health.
Most experts in fertility control generic Clomid cycles with ultrasound, which provides visualization of follicular growth and recording of ovulation.
