Fertilaid And Clomid
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.
Clomid (clomiphene): Clomid (clomiphene) is given to men in an attempt to increase their sperm count. Special care needs to be taken to follow their testosterone levels. Unfortunately Clomid (clomiphene) is not consistent when given to the men in that it may increase their sperm count but I've also have seen it lower their sperm count or not change it at all.
Femara/Letrozole: If Clomid (clomiphene) is not effective, Femara is sometimes prescribed in much the same way as clomid (clomiphene). For some women it is more effective. Be aware; however, that using Femara for ovulation induction is considered "off label, " meaning it is not approved by the fda for this use. This is not a problem if your doctor is familiar with it and comfortable prescribing it.See 1 more doctor answer
3-to-6 cycles: Many factors besides fertility medication go into achieving a succesful pregnancy. In appropriately selected couples, meaning normal semen parameters and healthy fallopian tubes at a minimum, cumulative pregnancy rates with Clomiphene are 85% in 3 cycles and around 95% in 6 cycles.See 1 more doctor answer
