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. Oh, honey, they DO! Mine takes Clomid regularly for better performance in bodybuilding, and it WORKS! I’m still laughing when it comes to mind how we bought a LARGE pack of these pills ’cause I had to took ’em to conceive while he ATE ’em for the same three months to gain muscle mass and reduce fat LOL

    1. Hi! No, it doesn’t LOL But you might suffer other more typical side effects of Clomid. Good luck with your treatment anyway!

    2. Unfortunately, sometimes it does. At least in my case. My doctor told it’s because the changes in hormonal levels. Still, I kept taking it. After terminating the treatment course, it all turned back to normality. Good luck!

    1. The same shit. It persists for months. But in my case there’s no other way to get pregnant. Hope it’ll be easier for you, honey.

  1. Hi guys and girls! I’m on my first course, and I feel so-so after Christmas holidays. Could that be due to Clomid + alcohol? Thanks in advance and kisses!

      1. Now I’m fine, thanks!! Guess it was really because of two glasses of sparkling wine, not Clomid fault LOL

  2. Hi! I’m 35, and we’ve been trying to conceive since September. I’m already tired of measuring temperatures, making ovulation tests, taking vitamins and all that stuff… Today I met my doctor again, and he (finally) mentioned Clomid. I am to start on my next cycle. Will you please share your personal experiences? Is it worth taking, what are side effects, how many cycles/courses it took to get pregnant? Thanks!!!

    1. Hi darling! I quess it works differently in each person, but I’d share my (very positive) esperience with pleasure! So, I’ve bought Clomid without even seeing a doctor after many attempts to concieve. I’ve chosen an average (50) dose. During the second (!!!) course I’ve made a POSITIVE pregnancy test!!! Moreover, I had almost no side effects, just a bit of nausea. So, do not worry and good luck! Kisses

    2. Hi! Don’t worry, it really works. As for me, I felt well, ant it took six courses to concieve, but I’m SO HAPYY now! Good luck!

    3. Hi! Me it took more than a year, but without Clomid I’d never be a mom! I had hot flashes, headaches, nausea… in fact all the symptoms possible, but it’s worth!!! Good luck! Hope it will be easier and faster for you!

  3. I need a typical advice. Just kiddin’… How long will it take to recieve my pills with normal and fast shipping options? I should start my first course in a month… Hope someone could share any experience… Thanks!

    1. Correction in which sense? Theoretically, you might loose some weight if overweigh’s due to thyroid disease. Still, exercise!

  4. Hi everybody! I’m LilyLol, and I’d like to announce the GOOD NEWS! I’m finally pregnant!!! It took me just two Clomid courses! Good luck, girls!!!

    1. My doctor told me not to waste Clomid pills in vain. He says it’s always better to wait until the next cycle. Good luck in this pleasant journey!

  5. Hi girls and other genders! I’ve got a bit complicated situation. My doc told me to take Clomid to concieve, but my periods are not regular enough, so he says first I should take a course of other pills, up to 3 to 4 months… Does it make sense? Thanks!

    1. Hi! I had the same problem, and I didn’t obey LOL and it took me two courses to get pregnant, so if you hesitate – start it without period correction!!! Good luck anyway!

  6. Hallo girls! Just one question… Do all of U tell your partners bout Clomid? Seems like my GF takes the pills…

  7. Hi! What I self-medicate with 50 mg pills for maximum (hope it will work) half a year? Is it safe?

    1. Hope it will work faster, ’cause Clomid has side effects (as any other drug). Anyway, the sooner you start, the sooner you’d feel happy! Good luck!!!

  8. Happy Easter! In fact, I just had to say thanks to everyone here and to Clomid manufacturers and selles, ’cause I’ve just found out that I’m finally pregnant!!! WOW!!! Best wishes!

  9. Hi everyone! I’ve read this on the web:
    clomifene is an inhibitor of the conversion of desmosterol into cholesterol by the enzyme 24-dehydrocholesterol reductase concerns about possible induction of desmosterolosis and associated symptoms such as cataracts and ichthyosis with extended exposure precluded the use of clomifene in the treatment of breast cancer
    Is that true?

  10. Hallo! Hope someone could help me. I’ve started my “self-course” in time, but in a week I’ve got an UNEXPECTED period!!! What should I do now? I’m still taking the pills… Thanks!

    1. Hi! I’ve had the same problem, and my doc told me to skip that month and restart later. Don’t waste your pills, sister! 🙂

  11. Hi everyone! I’m using Clomid for years with almost no side effects, but this month I’m having fckng insonnia!!!! Anyone has any idea? I’m not even sure if there’s any connection…

    1. I took the pills for three years (with breaks obviously) ’til I’ve got pregnant, and NO insonnia (other side effects were PRESENT grrrr)

    2. Wow, bro!!! We’ve gor the same problem (and the same firstname LOL)… Anyway, it passes, just wait a bit…

  12. Hi! Have U used Clomid to concieve (successfully I mean) with ovarian cyst and without seeing a doc? Thanks!

    1. ME!!! I’m literally AFRAID of doctors (well, I WAS, now I’m working on this shit with my therapist LOL), so I DID IT! In fact, guess it was kinda a miracle. Better see a doc, darling! Anyway, good luck! KISSES

    2. It’s always recommended to treat ovarian cyst first. Moreover, most cannot concieve with this diagnosis, so don’t waste your time and money in vain!

    1. Hallo, darling! No one will tell you the truth, but most of us have to take it for years, don’t give up!!! For me, it took a year (with breaks, of course)… Good luck!

    1. Some do take Clomid for that, but – even it helps – consider at least some physical activity. Otherwise you’ll have to redo the course, which means load on the body, side effects, spendings, and so on…

        1. Sorry, i wasn’t blaming you or smthng like that. Maybe you’d better see a doctor first. Anyway, good luck!

      1. Thanks for worrying! Noone left any reply here, but I’ve searched the web, and had started… Hope it will go fine!!!

  13. Hi! Where can I purchase this med online with an offer of free samples of other pills? Do such things still exist? Thanks!

  14. Hi! Ladies, had anyone ever tried a course in five years after the very first attempts? How it worked? Thank you in advance!

      1. Thanks, darling! I think it was my fault that time, because I didn’t respect the dose and missed several pills. Hope now it will work! Good luck you too!!!

  15. initial dose for 35YO girl who’ve never used any med like this and had never ever seen her doc? thx

    1. Better meet a doc, honey! ‘Cause “had never ever seen her doc” sounds like a diagnosis. Sory, but it’s true. Anyway, good luck!

  16. Dear girls!!! Does it affect the PMS??? Sorry, but I didn’t manage to search it on the web, and it could be a REAL problem for me personally…

    1. Hi! I’ve got the same problem (about to kill at PMS time LOL), but with the pills nothing, absolutely! I mean they’ve made me less agressive!

    1. Sorry, but what the *** is BEST? I’m about to start my first Clomid course, so maybe I should know that too…

  17. Ladies, I need help, SOS!!! My doc says I should start with other fertility boosters which I DO NOT like! Would anyone please help with ANY idea to tell him PLEASE!!!!

    1. well maybe your doctor knows your tests results and your health conditions better than anyone here and that’s why he insists on other medicines since clomid doesn’t fit literally everyone think of it

    1. Hi! I’m on my second course right now, and I’ve got nausea too… My fellow doctor told it’s quite common. Good luck!

  18. Hey ladies, did anyone take it with contrindications? I should, and I will, just need some feedback to be aware of side effects etc.

    1. Hi! I shouldn’t take it at all (endometriosis), by my doc still told me to try a three months course at a minimum dosage, so ask yours’ and good luck!

  19. Hi. I’m on my second course, and I’ve just decided to stop it all – my marriage, my attempts, etc. Could I just quit these pills? I don’t need a child ‘for myself’…

    1. Honey, you can make your own choices ALWAYS! Good luck in anything you’d prefer!!! I’ve been in the same situation, and finally’ve decided to continue, so now I’m a happy (well, when I get enough sleep LOL) mom with another man, but every person has A WAY…

    1. U’d only harm yourself, honey! Talk to him, or see your doctor (so he could talk to him LOL), or just do not take the pills. I won’t tell U should break up with this man, but…

  21. Hi! When should I stop trying??? I’m on my (cannot count) course, four years of attempts, and still nothing!!! Tired…
