I have pcos do I need to take Clomid (clomiphene) to get pregnant or I should first try without taking any medication ?

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

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
