Clomid Product Description
Clomid is a non-steroidal antiestrogen, used to treat female infertility. Clomid helps increase an estrogen level in its deficiency, and increases an estrogen level in a low level of female sex hormones. Low doses of Clomid are used to achieve a moderate estrogenic effect. High doses of Clomid are used to achieve and maintain an antiestrogen effect.
Clomid tablets are prescribed to infertile women in:
- secondary amenorrhea
- psychogenic amenorrhea
- hyperandrogenic anovulation
- post-oral contraceptive amenorrhea
To treat female infertility, Clomid pills should be taken daily for 5 days. If ovulation stimulation was not successful within one treatment course, Clomid can be used for another course of the infertility treatment.
If you’ve forgotten to take Clomid on time, take it as soon as possible. However, in this case you will have to adjust your next dose of tablets, spacing it out by 4 to 5 hours. Don’t try to compensate for the missed dose of Clomid by taking a double dose at a time.
Clomid tablets should be taken at the same time, without chewing, with a full glass of water. Ovulation normally occurs between 5 to 12 days after a course of Clomid pills, so sexual intercourse should be planned for the expected ovulation time. To calculate the ovulation time, the patients can use appropriate tests and a basal body temperature chart.
Before start using Clomid, the women are recommended to pass the liver function test. Patients with acute liver failure or a history of liver diseases, are advised to choose some alternative methods of infertility treatment, instead of Clomid application.
Clomid pills should be protected from light, heat and moisture, and stored in an original container, out of the reach of children, at room temperature not below 15°C.
Clomid Safety Information
Visual acuity may be changed during the therapy with Clomid. As a rule, visual disturbances are reversible and disappear as soon as a woman stops taking Clomid pills. Using Clomid as monotherapy or in combination with gonadotropins, some women may experience ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). To reduce the risk of OHSS, lower doses of Clomid are recommended for the treatment of infertility.
