Clomid (clomiphene) is used for women unable to conceive. Its effects are based on stimulating the process of ovulation. This drug works after a couple of cycles for most women. The only exception is infertility caused by tube blockage as the egg will not be released to meet with sperm. Since every doctor can prescribe a slightly different schedule of taking Clomid you need to listen to the instructions very carefully to make sure you remember everything so that your treatment would be as efficient as possible. Use Clomid exactly as recommended by your health care provider. The usual recommendation is taking this drug once a day for 5 days. If your doctor did not provide instructions make sure you read the prescription label carefully. If you are allergic to the active ingredient of this medicine make sure you mention this fact to your health care provider as taking Clomid may be dangerous for your health.
Such health conditions as uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, pituitary tumor, liver disease, adrenal disease, abnormal vaginal bleeding or thyroid disease should be reported to your health care provider to make sure you are prescribed the right dosage and achieve the effects desired. If you think you may have got pregnant while taking this drug stop the treatment and consult your health care provider immediately. One of the side effects of Clomid is a higher likelihood of multiple births. There are no specific dietary instructions you are supposed to follow. Flushing, breast discomfort, headache, vomiting and upset stomach are the few mild side effects you may experience when taking this medicine. Make sure you do not take this medicine in larger quantities, more often or for a longer time than recommended by your health care provider.
