About Clomid

Buy Clomid, Generic Clomid, Clomiphene Clomid (Clomiphene) is an infertility drug that is used to induce ovulation, to correct irregular ovulation, to help increase egg production and to correct luteal phase deficiency. It is one of the selective estrogen receptor modulators that acts as an anti-estrogen and tricks the pituitary gland into producing more FSH and LH, which, in turn, stimulates the ovary into producing more eggs and follicles. Generally, Clomid (Clomiphene) follicles are larger than injectible follicles right before ovulation

If there is a male factor involved in your inability to get pregnant, Clomid (Clomiphene) will not fix the problem. In fact, that's why most physicians suggest a thorough exam and adequate laboratory testing before beginning Clomid (Clomiphene). One would not want to arbitrarily begin taking Clomid (Clomiphene) if there are other problems that need to be addressed, as it would not necessarily be of any value in the face of other unrelated factors. Especially if you're paying out of pocket, unproductive overuse of the drug can get expensive.

Preliminary fertility testing should consist of a cycle day 3 ultrasound, a hysterosalpingogram (HSG - to check the condition of the fallopian tubes and to make sure there are no uterine anomalies), cycle day 3 bloodwork (to check FSH and LH levels), and a progesterone/prolactin check (bloodwork) seven to nine days after ovulation. A semen analysis for the partner is just as important. Ideally, doctors would try to find out why a couple is not achieving a pregnancy.

Clomid (Clomiphene) comes in 50-mg tablets that are taken on days 5-9 of your cycle or, less typically, on days 4-8 or 3-7. There is some preliminary research that indicates that an earlier start date may result in more pregnancies, but most gynecologists continue to prescribe it for days 5-9. One recent study (Biljan et al) actually tried prescribing Clomid (Clomiphene) on cycle days 1-5. While none of the participants in their day 5-9 group resulted in pregnancy, 24 percent of the women who took Clomid (Clomiphene) on days 1-5 were able to conceive.

Daily doses range from 50 mg to 200 mg. A few doctors will prescribe as much 250 mg per day, but this is rare and goes against manufacturer's suggestions. The Merck Manual, a reputable sourcebook for health care professionals, suggests no more than 150 mg per day.
