Clomid Therapy

Clomid (Clomiphene Citrate, 50 mg oral pills) is prescribed to help women ovulate (make and drop egg). If treatment is successful, pregnancy is conceived during 2-3 months on Clomid therapy.

Clomid is one of the oldest prescriptive fertility medications on the market. Clomid is most often used for patients with PCO (Polycystic Ovary) who suffer from infrequent or absent ovulation. Clomid helps restore ovulation in a half of PCO patients and many of them get pregnant while taking Clomid.
Although Clomid is designated to improve ovulation, Clomid is prescribed for all-type infertility patients.

Patient needs healthy fallopian tubes for Clomid to work and tubes are checked before starting medication. Clomid therapy is monitored for effectiveness (ovulation) and possible side effects including ovarian cyst, ovarian hyperstimulation, mood swings, hot flashes, abdominal pain and visual disturbances.

Some women naively believe that after years of unsuccessful attempts to conceive, few magic Clomid pills will perform a miracle. When not pregnant after months on Clomid, patient refuses to stop medication, changes doctor to get new prescriptions, risking disappointment and side effects.
