Can my primary doctor pricribe Clomid (clomiphene)?

Can my primary doctor pricribe Clomid (clomiphene)?

Yes, but....: Your ob/gyn is the best choice to give you clomid (clomiphene). You should have a hysterosalpingogram (dye test to check your tubes and uterus) and a semenanalysis on your partner. You don't want to take too many months of Clomid (clomiphene) without ever having ohter testing done. Talk with your ob/gyn first. ...Read more

Clomid (clomiphene): Clomid (clomiphene) can be prescribed by any doctor, however it is probably best to see a gynecologist or fertility doctor who can counsel you on the risk, benefits & side effects of Clomid (clomiphene) and has experience treating patients with clomid (clomiphene). In addition it would be wise to have a few tests done to identify why you haven't conceived and if Clomid (clomiphene) is right for you. Clomid (clomiphene) is inexpensive, about $10 for generic. ...Read more

My doc had said to take my Clomid (clomiphene) 50mg on cd1 through cd5, is it more effective to take it on cd3 through cd7?

Cycle day 3-7: Classically Clomid (clomiphene) is given starting cycle day 3 or cycle day 5 for 5 days. There is no difference in pregnancy rates between these two start dates. Clomid (clomiphene) has also been started on cycle day 2 for special situations. Good luck. ...Read more

My doctors discouraged Clomid (clomiphene) saying that it will disrupt my system due to some pill I took in the past. Whta do I do to enable me ovulate.

My doctors discouraged Clomid (clomiphene) saying that it will disrupt my system due to some pill I took in the past. Whta do I do to enable me ovulate.

Ask your doctor: Metformin, clomid, (clomiphene) and Femara are 3 very common pills that are used for ovulation induction. But sometimes they're not appropriate, and whether they're for you depends on your medical history. I'm not aware of any "pill" you could have taken in the past that would be a contraindication to using Clomiphene (clomid). ...Read more

Is Clomid (clomiphene) better taken days 3 -7 or 5-9? I would just like opinions/ explanations as my different doctors say different things.

Is Clomid (clomiphene) better taken days 3 -7 or 5-9? I would just like opinions/ explanations as my different doctors say different things.

Different: I have seen that Clomid (clomiphene) taken Day 3 to Day 7 will produce more follicles and Clomid (clomiphene) Day 5 to 9 will just hasten growth of on follicle and normalize or elevate progesterone levels in the luteal phase. Also, Clomid (clomiphene) is usually given at higher doses Day 3 to 7 to increase number of follicles and in combination with hormones. ...Read more

My husband is taking clomid per doctor orders but he wants to try fertilaid can he try that with clomid?

Depends: Ask the doctor who wrote for the Clomid. The Fertilaid comes in three different types from their website.
There is Fertilaid, Boost counter, and Motility. Since it contains L-carnitine an amino acid, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants seems OK to use.

I think OK but check w the Clomid prescriber. ...Read more

My doctor put me on Clomid (clomiphene) and ovestin. What are these for?

Together? Hmmm..: First I recommend if a doctor prescribes medicines you ask him/her "why" rather than going online. The prescribing doctor is the only one who knows what he/she is thinking. Clomid (clomiphene) is for ovulation induction for fertility, Ovestin is an estriol cream used for vaginal dryness in menopause. I do not understand using both together; you'll need to ask the doc. Best wishes to you. ...Read more

Does clomid (clomiphene) increase risk of miscarriages? And why do doctor's never mention this risk?

Always a risk: The risk of miscarriage will normally range from 10 to 25% whether or not you take Clomid (clomiphene). Risk may be increased because you would not be taking Clomid (clomiphene) if there wasn't a problem of some sort, and the risk of twins (with a possible increased risk of miscarriage) is higher with Clomid (clomiphene). Your "never mention" comment is inappropriate as well as incorrect. ...Read more
