Is it safe to to take generic Clomid (clomiphene) bought offline to try and conceive twins? I have no medical problems and have two children? I am 31 and my husband is 36
Clomid (clomiphene) is a prescription medication and should be taken under the direction of a physician familiar with the use of this medication.
Since Clomid (clomiphene) has been around for a long time, there are generic forms of this medication that work just fine. It is a stable medication so it can be sent through the mail system and not lose its potency.
When Clomid (clomiphene) is taken, there is an increase risk of having a twin pregnancy. This is estimated at 15 to 25%. As an infertility specialist, I do not intentionally try to establish a twin pregnancy in my patients. Though the majority of twin pregnancies have a good outcome, about 5% of the time they have a very bad outcome. They are born prematurely. If they are born too premature they can die. If they live, they can have complications of prematurity such as cerebral palsy, mental retardation, blindness, or severe lung problems to name a few.
Rarely, Clomid (clomiphene) can result in triplets or more. I have seen this happen in a patient who took Clomid (clomiphene) on her own. It is always a good idea to take prescription medications only under the direction of a physician. ...Read more
Hi what does kissing ovaries mean for fertility? And I already have 3 children 2 natural and 1 with clomid (clomiphene) so you think I could become pregnant again?
Kissing: "Kissing ovaries" is not a precise term: it usually refers to ovaries that are right next to each other on ultrasound, and usually is only seen with enlarged ovaries. But it could mean any number of things. This is generally not a fertility problem, so at age 29 (?) I'd guess your chance of noter pregnancy is good. ...Read more
Helps ovulation: Clomiphene fools the brain into thinking there is not enough estrogen produced by the ovary so the brain sends out more signals to the ovary to get to work (fsh/lh hormones). These stimulate more and better ovulation and therefore can take people who don't ovulate or don't ovulate well and improve this function. Side effects, hot flashes, mood changes, headaches etc. ...Read more
Depend on indication: For ovulation (when a patient who doesn't release an egg on her own), then assuming there are open tubes and normal sperm, Clomid (clomiphene) restores normal monthly conception rates: about 20%/month for women < 35, 10%/month for women > 35. When used for unexplained infertility, then it is less effective, generally about 5-7%/month depending on whether or not IUI is also used. ...Read more
Days 5-9: You should be under a doctor's care while you are taking clomid (clomiphene). Rarely, but sometimes, it can cause ovarian hyperstimulation or large ovarian cysts. A physician should evaluate you between each month of clomid (clomiphene). Take Clomid (clomiphene) days 5-9. Day 1 is the first day of your period. Start an ovulation kit day 11 or 12.

CC dose: Way way back, years ago, doses as high as 300 mg daily were occasionally used. We'v learned alot since then and 200 mg daily is now usually the max, very few preganacies occur on higher doses. Personally, I don't lgo above 150 mg. Remember, the best dose is the lowest dose that consistently produces a dominant follicle. Good luck. ...Read more
I have found a website that's selling clomid, (clomiphene) do you think that I should go ahead and order it?
No!: Do you know what dose to take? Do you know when to start it or - more important - when you should not start it? Do you know the side effects and risks? Do you know what the multiple pregnancy risks are? Do you know what's an emergency or what isn't? I wouldn't order it. ...Read more
Dfferenti: Neither is 'better' or 'worse' than the other, they are different. Menotropins (merional) are generally considered to be "stronger" medicines than clomiphene, but that's not strictly correct. Merional-type drugs tend to produce more follicles and higher Estradiol levels; they also have a higher rate of multiple gestations. And higher chance of ovarian hyperstimulation. ...Read more
