Approximately 20% of married couples who have difficulties with conception, this is because, a woman’s ovaries do not produce and release an egg in each menstrual cycle (anovulation). Clomid acts by causing a gland in the brain (the anterior pituitary gland) to release hormones that stimulate ovulation.
It must be remembered that there are many causes of anovulation, so Clomid may not be effective in all cases.
When accepting Clomid, it should be 28-32 days from the beginning of one period to the next. Your ovaries should release the egg 6-12 days after a course of Clomid. You should have sexual intercourse at this time to increase your chances of conception.
If menstruation does not arrive after the 35th day there are two likely possibilities: the dose of Clomid was not enough to get ovulation, or you are pregnant.
If your menstrual period is overdue, contact your doctor who wrote you a prescription for clomid and he will advise you what steps to take.
Before taking Clomid, your doctor should perform a gynecological examination before you start taking the drug. This is necessary in order to ensure that there are no physical conditions that could prevent you from becoming pregnant or that could indicate that Clomid is not the right remedy for you.
Do not take Clomid if you are allergic to any of the ingredients of the drug. Also, do not take Clomid if you are pregnant.
To avoid accidental ingestion in the early stages of pregnancy, you should perform tests during each treatment cycle to determine if ovulation is occurring. You should have a pregnancy test before starting your next course of Clomid therapy.
Tell your doctor immediately if you notice the following side effects:
- nausea or vomiting;
- breast discomfort;
- insomnia, nervousness, depression, fatigue, dizziness, or delirium
- rash or skin irritation;
- increased frequency of urination;
- hair loss;
- vaginal discharge;
- vision problems;
- increased heart rate;
In general, the drug is absolutely safe. We wish you good health and a successful conception of the child, even if you are currently experiencing difficulties with conception!
