Atypical Clomid uses: What else does it treat besides infertility?

Most often, doctors prescribe this medication to treat female infertility of almost any origin. It is really very effective if your goal is conception. However, let us talk about other, atypical Clomid uses. But first, let’s recall the main reasons to consult a doctor for a prescription for this antiestrogen. First of all, specialists prescribe this drug for the treatment of infertility in women of almost any age. It stimulates ovulation, and, if used correctly, quickly leads to a long-awaited pregnancy.

Prescription for amenorrhea and disease variations

We cannot say these are atypical Clomid uses. Actually, the absence of menstruation or too rare bleeding can lead to difficulties in conception.

Amenorrhea, or oligomenorrhea, manifests itself as infrequent and usually irregular menstrual bleeding. A woman may menstruate every 40 days or even less often, sometimes up to once a year. We have no idea how Joanne Rowling would call it.

Atypical Clomid uses

Young girls and older women, especially in the period before menopause, can complain about this disease. Most often, doctors diagnose one of two forms of oligomenorrhea – primary (due to congenital defects of the reproductive system, during puberty) and secondary (often due to stress or abortions, at an older age).

A disease can lead to infertility, but in itself causes a lot of trouble, too. For example, a woman may complain of weight gain, the appearance of “unnecessary” hair on the body, and severe acne. In any case, better consult a physician and pass necessary medical exams as soon as possible. Remind your doctor of atypical Clomid uses.

Use of the drug for Stein-Leventhal syndrome (polycystic ovary syndrome)

Doctors often prescribe this remedy for violation of ovarian function, or PCOS, or Stein-Leventhal syndrome. How to understand that you may be suffering from this syndrome?

Here are the main symptoms:

  • Irregular, rare menstruation or the complete absence of ovulation and, accordingly, menstrual bleeding.
  • Too heavy, or vice versa, or painful menstruation.
  • Diagnosed or suspected infertility.
  • An increased level of androgens in the blood, which is easy to notice not only by the hormone testing, but also by the signs of masculinization. Particularly, a woman can notice that the hair on the head falls out, and on the body, on the contrary, grows like in men. In addition, sometimes the voice changes, the clitoris enlargers, the skin condition worsens (acne, wrinkles, stretch marks). Moreover, often, sex drive increases dramatically. Also, mind the so-called male-pattern obesity, when fat concentrates in the abdomen.
  • Chronic pain in the lower abdomen or lower back.
  • Long periods with symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (pain, swelling, sudden mood swings, irritability).
  • Multiple ovarian cysts, a noticeable increase in ovarian size, endometrium changes. A woman should pass a number of medical tests to identify these symptoms.
  • Changing parameters of blood tests. Without a visit to a specialist, a patient may never know about it. Therefore, we recommend paying attention to the symptoms mentioned above. If you suspect PCOS, better see a doctor and start treatment ASAP.

Other atypical Clomid uses – not only in women but also in men

Here we list the most amazing ways to successfully use the drug for the treatment of various diseases and for other purposes:

  • Galactorrhea or Chiari-Frommel syndrome (abnormal production of breast milk, not associated with feeding). You might be surprised, but this unpleasant condition happens both in women and in men. If the disease is not caused by cancer, a doctor may prescribe Clomid.
  • Oligospermia, or oligozoospermia, or just low sperm count, which most often leads to infertility in men. However, with proper treatment, a patient has great chances of recovery and becoming a dad.
  • The atypical Clomid uses include the fight against uterine bleeding. Please mind that in this case you cannot self-medicate. Consult a specialist and take pills under medical control.
  • In addition, bodybuilders and some other athletes love this medicine. Due to its properties, the substance eliminates the so-called “aromatization” – side effects from taking anabolic steroids. In other words, the drug corrects the level of estrogen in the male body, preventing “feminization”.

  1. You forgot to report that the drug saves from excess fluid / looking fat. I am an athlete and see the effect.

  2. And I do recommend it! My pills helped me get pregnant in just two months!! The main thing is to choose the right dosage. Good luck!

  3. The dose is individual, better ask your physician or endocrinologist. You can try to adjust it yourself, but I’d better not risk. Search the Internet for a standard dosage.

    1. I’ve read several articles here, they tell everything. Anyway, any person should study label instructions before taking such meds. Moreover, as for me, my doctor told me to take Clomid for 6 (!!!) months without any breaks, so it’s individual.

    1. Hi Alfred! Will you please explain WTF is “harm hormones” dude? Hormones act on themselves. People who have to take Clomid already have “bad” hormones (according to your logic) LOL

    1. There’s a link here on this site, I’ve bought ’em there. Have no idea where you can find cheaper ones, dude 🙂

        1. Unfortunately no LOL but I’ve made a purchase from a pharmacy linked here and was totally satisfied, and I’ve read that article which might be really usefull for my mom for example

    1. Hi! Maybe I’m late with this reply, still: see your family doctor, and he/she will let you know. Most often, we need to visit only endocrinologist and gynecologist, these two are quite enough. Good luck!!!

  4. I think it’s generic. But all the drugstores now sell equivalents, so don’t worry. I’m using generic medicines for years, and am still alive LOL

    1. Dear Lilly, if you wish to get pregnant with Clomid, better first pass the tests and consult a doctor. Good luck!

    2. Lilly, don’t worry, U can self-medicate! It may be possible to ovulate without a period!!! Just make sure that you are not pregnant yet, and did not ovulate already, then start Clomid!

    1. I’m taking them for exactly the same problem, but I’ve passed all the tests needed, and my doc picked up the dose, and he monitors my state all the time… Maybe you’d better see your physician, too… Anyway, good luck!

    2. I’m using them, don’t worry. The side effects are the same as if you’ve been taking the pills for other needs.

    1. Anonymous, I took Clomid and my wife got pregnant finally, but I have no idea what really made the miracle LOL (just kidding, try them and good luck!)

  5. Would anyone please share the details of conceiving with Clomid? For how long you had to take it? Were there any side effects?

    1. to Katya: Hi! My experience was more than positive. I’ve got pregnant after the very first ovulation (that is, the very first cycle!!). My dose was initially 100 mg. Side effects were quite mild – just several hot flashes, some headache, and a bit of pelvic pain. Good luck!

  6. Hallo girls! Anybody knows whether I should double the dose (100 mg instead of 50 mg) if I fail after the first cycle? Thanks.

    1. Dear Beatrice, I’d recommend seeing a doctor to decide whether you need to adjust the dose. You’d probably need some exams. Good luck!

    1. Hi! It’s a hormonal disorder causing infrequent or prolonged periods, excess androgen (male hormone) levels, etc… Often, the ovaries develop numerous follicles, so they fail to regularly release eggs. Anyway, better see a doctor. Clomid helps in this case, too!

    1. As for me, I had mood swings – really awful, hot flashes and nausea. But it took me just two courses of Clomid to ovulate and finally become a mother of lovely twins! However, I’m sure it varies from person to person, and depends on many factors. Maybe men and women have different side effects, I have no idea

    2. oh dude I’ll tell u the truth that is breast fckng tenderness I mean I feel like a woman in that particular part of the body

    3. All the effects of Clomid on the human body are well described on the web, and you can find the list on the label instructions. Anyway, your personal reaction might DIFFER A LOT. Take care!

      1. I do understand that, just hope everybody could at least read the instructions (non only for Clomid, it concerns any medicine!!!) first, and take care. Anyway, wish U the best!

          1. Once again, nothing personal, if U wish to get pregnant, I wish you the best. BTW I’ve heard that Clomid is often the only “magic pill”.

    1. My doctor says it usually takes up to three cycles. Anyway, if you do not ovulate, you will have to make a break. You cannot stay on Clomid too long.

  7. Hi. Have you any opinion on male hypogonadism treatment? My doctor intends to prescribe me testosterone supplementation therapy, but I’d prefer taking Clomid. Thanks in advance for answering.

    1. Hi, both methods might help. Try TST, if it doesn’t work, switch to Clomid. BTW, if your doctor doesn’t prescribe it, you can buy it online without a prescription.

    1. I’m taking Clomid for hypogonadism + male infertility, and it works. But you may tolerate it worse, or have to adjust the dose quite often, or feel better with usual testosterone. See you doctor or just try various options.

  8. Will anyone please explain how it works for low sperm count? I mean, in case I take these pills, I’d have more amount of sperm or what??

    1. LOL u made my day
      sorry
      in reply: u’ll have more ‘active’ sperm to make your woman pregnant
      no difference in ‘amount’
      if u need really MORE sperm search internet or eat mussels

    1. Hi! I also had a rash along with other side effects on Clomid. My doc adjusted the dose. It helped. Call your physician and good luck! Mary H.

  9. Hallo, I’d like to understand whether it’s safe to self-medicate with these pills. Anyone has such an experience? I mean positive one LOL.. Thanks in advance!

    1. ahah sure (don’t tell anyone includin’ my mom lol) as far as i know most girls take it at their own risk.. and yep we get pregnant.. but u’ll have to read a lot on the web to adjust your dose if needed and so on.. guess that works only in relatively healthy people

    2. Actually, you can risk if you really have no opportunity to consult a doctor, and if you are absolutely healthy. This drug works for pregnancy in most women. Still, mind side effects and other possible consequences. Good luck!

        1. guess it was about absolutely healthy (that’s almost absolutely lol) with just one single small problem. they do exist. my sister had no diseases and no diagnosis and couldn’t get pregnant for years. her partner was healthy too. nothing until she took two courses of clomid.

    1. Sure! I guess every medicine has a generic version LOL As far as I understand following links from this website you can choose exactly a cheaper generic Clomid tabs.. No need to search for more.. I’m buying other meds in the same online store..

    2. Yes, Clomid is one of the medicines which have cheaper generic analogues. The substance itself is “artificial” (not a read hormone), so you might take any.
