Letrozole is more stronger then clomid (clomiphene)? My dr told me after thet we will try injection or invitro. What is that? Is expensive? Letrozole

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?

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

What will happen if we take serophene (clomiphene) and alcoholic drinks a the same time?

Why do this??: Alcohol is not a friend to conception. Social drinking (which for a woman should be no more than 1 drink per day or 7/week, and never more than 3 drinks on one occasion) does not affect ovulation much, but higher levels of alcohol can have profound effects. If you are drinking to excess, it will decrease the ability of the Clomiphene to help you ovulate. Talk to your reproductive specialist. ...Read more

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) : 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
