No: Letrazole is an alternative to clomid (clomiphene). Some people who fail Clomid (clomiphene) may do better with letrazole but it is not stronger. The injectable drugs are fertility drugs that contain a hormone called fish. They are more effective, but have a higher risk of multiples and are expensive. ...Read more

Test other things: Ovulation is an important part of getting pregnant and ovulation kits are quite good. It is ok not to get pregnant the first month. At 25, give it at least 6 months on your own. Then, you need to see your gyn to make sure that your fallopian tubes are open, that your partner's sperm are normal and other things that you should discuss. Also, make sure you are already taking prenatal vitamins. ...Read more

We tried Clomid (clomiphene) 50mgs for our first cycle w/o results. Our doctor says to raise Clomid (clomiphene) to 100mg or try letrozole at a low dosage. What should we do?

Ask your doctor: I have my patients use 3 different doses of Clomiphene (up to 150 mg) before switching to letrozole, but some doctors prefer to start with letrozole. If you did not ovulate with 50 mg clomiphene, and you have been adequately evaulated for other causes of infertility/anovulation, then 100 mg should be safe. ...Read more

I should take 3 pills of Clomid (clomiphene) 3-7, should I take them one at a time or all at once on the same day?

Clomid (clomiphene): There is a disconnect between the number of pills and they days you are supposed to take the clomid, (clomiphene) which are days 3 through 7 of your cycle, which are 5 days. You would take one pill every day. You may want to check with your doctor, if he/she really intended to give you Clomid (clomiphene) on three days only - and then whether you should take the pill day 3 - 5 or day 5 - 7. ...Read more
