None for most men: Clomiphene citrate is an estrogen antagonist. For women who are estrogen dominant, this can cause multiple side effects as the Clomiphene shifts the estrogen to androgen (male hormone) balance away from the estrogen. In men, shifting that same balance away from estrogen and toward the androgens is not a problem as men are naturally androgen dominant. Most men have virtually no side effects. ...Read more
In april i was put on clomephene citrate 100mg but not sure if i ovulated. Now I have been put on Clomid (clomiphene) 50mg. Does it mean that it be less effectiv?
Ovulation on CC: Now this is a pet peeve of mine. Doctors give Clomid (clomiphene) and do not follow the patients. In order to use this drug correctly one must be followed with ultrasounds. Clomid (clomiphene) is a terrible, nasty anti-estrogen drug with many side effects-and I use it all the time because it is inexpensive and can help an anovulatory woman. Ultrasound is needed to follow endometrial thickness and ovarian response. ...Read more
Im using folistim 50 (clomifene citrate tablets)..frm 3rd day of my period till 7th..total 5days every night 2tab..! Is it of any harm to me? Im 20!
Check meds: Folistim is Follicle Stimulating hormone. This is a different medication from Clomiphene citrate. Clomid (clomiphene) comes in doses of 50 mg increments. Folistim is an injection and does not come in that dose. Both have risks of ovarian hyperstimulation. Please clarify with your doctor what medication you are using. All of the risks should be covered in great detail as part of the consent process. ...Read more

Clomid (clomiphene): The transvaginal ultrasound is used to monitor your ovarian ovulatory cysts. The ultrasound helps your doctor decide whether or not to use an injectable medication to cause ovulation. You can use Clomid (clomiphene) without a transvaginal ultrasound. You should speak to your doctor about this. ...Read more
Im 48years im using andro gel 5 years ago can i replace it Clomid (clomiphene citrate) is that mor safe the androgel 10mg?
Good question: Hi. Clomiphene has been shown to frequently correct secondary hypogonadism (testes must be functional) in hypogonadal men. It's use in men is not FDA-approved, and ergo is "off'label" (a big "so what?!"). There certainly has been no head-to-head comparison between Androgel and clomiphene for safety and efficacy I'm aware of. Clomiphene can be very effective, and apparently safe by available data. ...Read more

50mg Clomid (clomiphene) has corrected luteal phase defect. Once this medication is discontinued will the luteal phase defect return?
Defect or no defect: Many don't believe that luteal phase defect actually exists. Usually people with a diagnosed luteal phase defect actually have problem with growing a healthy egg. Remember the egg and its associated cells determine the length of the luteal phase. ...Read more
I ovulated three days ago. It was very painful; although I attributed it to the fertility medications i've been on(clomid, menogon and pregyn). Since the day I ovulated, i've been experiencing shooting pains in my rectum. The pains lasts for about an hour
Call your doctor: Your meds cause lots of ovarian stimulation, may have excessive follicle production, cysts, etc. Ovulation can cause release of some blood, inflammation, causing mid cycle pain, sometimes with slight fever (mittelschmerz). Rectum is anatomically right near gyn organs. Local inflammation could cause these symptoms. Call your doc. ...Read more

I have pcos do I need to take Clomid (clomiphene) to get pregnant or I should first try without taking any medication ?
Need Treatment: Unless your cycles are exactly 28 days and have always been regular, i would suggest you seek treatment. We prefer Letrozole over Clomid (clomiphene) due to success and side effects. The fact that cycles are irregular even if they are only off a little (30 - 32d), the risk of miscarriage is high. This would be the reason i would recommend treatment. In addition the time to pregnancy will be shorter. ...Read more
I was taking 100mg Clomid (clomiphene) from day 3- 7. My progesterone level is 3.6. on day 21. Do you think i should take stronger medication, or should I go to the fertility specialist, because right now I go to gynecologist.
You may: A progesterone level of 3.6 (day 21) implies ovulation. However, your doctor may either continue your current dose of 100 mg or increase to 150 mg to increase your chance of pregnancy (superovulation). Note, most women who are going to conceive on clomid (clomiphene) usually do so within the first 3 months. Therefore, a trial of 3-6 months on clomid (clomiphene) is reasonable before seeing a specialist for more potent drug ...Read more

Any medication to use with Clomid (clomiphene) to enhance cervical mucus? I have pcos , been on Clomid (clomiphene) 100mg, blood tests&scans show i ovulate but no conception stil
Possibly: As you already know Clomid will make the cervical mucus suboptimal because of its anti-estrogenic effects. Guaifenesin such as Mucinex (guaifenesin) seems to improve the mucous somewhat. But intrauterine insemination is usually used to bypass the cervical mucus in situations where the cervical mucus is suboptimal. ...Read more
