I have irregular cycle and I have one follicle of 9mm...Can it be increased by clomifene citrate?

Yes: Clomid (clomiphene) is a medication to help people who are not ovulating or not ovulating very often. It works in about 80% of people to get them to ovulate. It does have side effects though such as ovarian cysts and does increase the chance of having twins. ...Read more

What're the common side effects of men taking clomiphene citrate (clomid) 50 mg?

What're the common side effects of men taking clomiphene citrate (clomid) 50 mg?

None for most men: Clomiphene citrate is an estrogen antagonist. For women who are estrogen dominant, this can cause multiple side effects as the Clomiphene shifts the estrogen to androgen (male hormone) balance away from the estrogen. In men, shifting that same balance away from estrogen and toward the androgens is not a problem as men are naturally androgen dominant. Most men have virtually no side effects. ...Read more

In april I was put on clomephene citrate 100mg but not sure if I ovulated. Now I have been put on Clomid (clomiphene) 50mg. Does it mean that it be less effectiv?

Ovulation on CC: Now this is a pet peeve of mine. Doctors give Clomid (clomiphene) and do not follow the patients. In order to use this drug correctly one must be followed with ultrasounds. Clomid (clomiphene) is a terrible, nasty anti-estrogen drug with many side effects-and I use it all the time because it is inexpensive and can help an anovulatory woman. Ultrasound is needed to follow endometrial thickness and ovarian response. ...Read more

I'm using folistim 50 (clomifene citrate tablets). frm 3rd day of my period till 7th. Total 5days every night 2tab.! Is it of any harm to me? I'm 20!

Check meds: Folistim is Follicle Stimulating hormone. This is a different medication from Clomiphene citrate. Clomid (clomiphene) comes in doses of 50 mg increments. Folistim is an injection and does not come in that dose. Both have risks of ovarian hyperstimulation. Please clarify with your doctor what medication you are using. All of the risks should be covered in great detail as part of the consent process. ...Read more

Taking clomifene citrate for 5 days. Is it ok if I do trans vaginal ultra sound not on my 12th day? .Il be out of town that day I wana b pregnant plshelp

Clomid (clomiphene): The transvaginal ultrasound is used to monitor your ovarian ovulatory cysts. The ultrasound helps your doctor decide whether or not to use an injectable medication to cause ovulation. You can use Clomid (clomiphene) without a transvaginal ultrasound. You should speak to your doctor about this. ...Read more

I'm 48years im using andro gel 5 years ago can I replace it Clomid  (clomiphene citrate) is that mor safe the androgel 10mg?

I'm 48years im using andro gel 5 years ago can I replace it Clomid  (clomiphene citrate) is that mor safe the androgel 10mg?

Good question: Hi. Clomiphene has been shown to frequently correct secondary hypogonadism (testes must be functional) in hypogonadal men. It's use in men is not FDA-approved, and ergo is "off'label" (a big "so what?! "). There certainly has been no head-to-head comparison between Androgel and clomiphene for safety and efficacy I'm aware of. Clomiphene can be very effective, and apparently safe by available data. ...Read more

Clomid (clomiphene): Clomid (clomiphene) can be used instead of androgel. However, like any drug, clomid (clomiphene) has side effects which can affect your vision. You should discuss the problem with your urologist ...Read more

I'm on 25 mg Clomid (clomiphene) days 3-5! is this dosage too low? Does Clomid (clomiphene) improve egg quality? This is 3rd month on it, should I ask for higher dose?

Depends: The dosage and duration depends on your response. It does appear that your 25 mg for only three days might be somewhat low. Ask your physician what your Progesterone level is and how many follicles developed during your cycle. Usual starting dose is 50 mg on days 3-7. Clomid (clomiphene) regulates ovulation and increases the number of follicles, but it doesn't usually improve egg quality. ...Read more

This is my 4th day of positive opks after taking clomid (clomiphene). Is this normal or should I be worried that the egg is not releasing? Positive days 17-20

Not Positive: So kits should never be positive for 4 days like that. Usually they are positive for 1-2 days. Usually that means your natural LH hormones levels are high and it is interfering with the test. Likely OPKs will not work for you. You will probably need bloodwork and ultrasound to show you when ovulation is going to occur ...Read more

Will I recruit more eggs if I start taking Clomid (clomiphene) cd 2 instead of 3? When does egg selec. Happen? I have normal ovulation around cd 16-17, 30 day cycl

No you will not: Egg selection happens early, no one is exactly certain, some theories hold that it actually may begin in the cycle before your period. Studies show pregnancy rates are identical if you start CC on CD 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 - please follow your doctor's instructions, do not try to game the odds. ...Read more

I took Clomid (clomiphene) cd 3-7, OPK said I surged on cd 10. Is it too early for a viable egg?

Not necessarily: Its not necessarily too early. You can have a progesterone level drawn around CD 21-25 to confirm ovulation. ...Read more

4 levels at 6dpo on 50mg Clomid (clomiphene) were 12.9 & 10.8. Does this indicate poor egg quality or make fertilization more difficult? I'm on 100mg this cycle.

4 levels at 6dpo on 50mg Clomid (clomiphene) were 12.9 & 10.8. Does this indicate poor egg quality or make fertilization more difficult? I'm on 100mg this cycle.

No worries: Progesterone levels in a cycling woman are either ovulatory or non-ovulatory. If your level was over 1.5-2.0 you ovulated, if level is below 1.0-1.5 you didn't, or at least you didn't yet. People (doctors and patients alike) mistakenly try to use early (6 days) p4 levels to decide if a cycle is 'good' or 'not, ' the levels don't tell you that. ...Read more

Maybe: If you do not normally ovulation, it likely shows that your ovulation was poor. The levels do confirm ovulation and they are ok but not that high. If you already ovulate it probably indicates some poor hormonal production from your ovaries, which can sometimes reflect poor egg quality. But that is unpredictable. ...Read more

I'm on Clomid (clomiphene) and ovulated on day cd 22. I've heard ovulating that late makes my egg quality no good. I'm on a 33 day cycle and took Clomid (clomiphene) cd 5-9?

I'm on Clomid (clomiphene) and ovulated on day cd 22. I've heard ovulating that late makes my egg quality no good. I'm on a 33 day cycle and took Clomid (clomiphene) cd 5-9?

Better late/never: Better to ovulate late than never with Clomid (clomiphene). Your normal 33 day cycle would produce ovulation on Day 19 which is not very different with Clomid (clomiphene) on Day 22. This is a distinction without a difference and would not count as "late". ...Read more

After taking Clomid (clomiphene) + ovidrel is it better for the sperm to wait on the egg, or the egg to wait on the sperm? Took the trigger yesterday morning

After taking Clomid (clomiphene) + ovidrel is it better for the sperm to wait on the egg, or the egg to wait on the sperm? Took the trigger yesterday morning

Sperm to wait on egg: Ideally, you want the sperm to already be in the reproductive tract before ovulation occurs. The window of opportunity is very short for ovulation, so having the sperm already available gives you the best chance of getting pregnant. ...Read more

Diminished ovarian reserve with low egg supply. Would u rec Clomid (clomiphene) with IUI or injectable with iui. I am 35 years old?

Yes, IVF is better: At age 39 with DOR, you may try few cycles Clomid (clomiphene) IUI, but IVF is a better option. The reason is with DOR, you don't have many embryos to work with. On the other hand, if you do IVF, you may bank embryos and do FET later. At age 39, I strongly recommend to do Pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS) of your embryos prior to transfer. It will increase your change of pregnancy and reduce miscarriage ...Read more

4 days late egg whites discharge started feb 15 Clomid (clomiphene) days 5-7 sex days 20, 22, 24, 26, 27 could I be pregnant took test sunday it was negative?

Late intercourse: Most women ovulate on day #14, calling the first day of your prior period day#1. So, intercourse on days 20-27 seems late for attempts at conception. If you believe that you ovulated later, and lets say that you conceived on 2/27, then a pregnancy test should be positive by now. ...Read more

Chances are good: These days there are many resources to assist couples to conceive, and you are still young. The follicle size may not be significant, but depending on your specific circumstances and the workup so far, Clomid (clomiphene) could be a reasonable treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

In clomid (100mg).Today day 15 Follilce size F1-17*18mm F2-26*22mm Endometrium-10.5 Had HCG-5000IU twice. Egg not ruptured yet. What might be the reason?

LUF: Luteinized Unruptured Follicle can sometimes happen. The follicle just does not rupture and there is no release of egg. Sometimes, elevated testosterone levels in PCOD can be associated with LUF. Please discuss with your doctor your options. It does not happen every cycle. So, please do not lose hope. Maybe next cycle will be easier and successful. Good Luck! ...Read more

When the egg matures and releases high estrogen, brain starts releasing LH that trigger ovulation. Clomid (clomiphene) is estr receptr. How come estr surge possibl?

Question?: Each month, fsh is produced that recruits eggs which produce estrogen. The rise in estrogen eventually triggers the lh surge and ovulation. Clomid (clomiphene) is a weak "anti-estrogen" and tricks the brain into over-stimulating the ovaries and increases changes of ovulation, to put it simply. Your question is worded poorly, but I hope this is a good answer for you. ...Read more

After egg matures in ovary, does it releases estrogen to signal brain to release LH even on Clomid (clomiphene) cycle? Or the process different on clomid (clomiphene)?

Once the corpus: Luteum (maturing egg) starts producing estrogen, it feedbacks to the hypothalamus and pituitary gland to inhibit gnrh/lh/fsh production. Clomid (clomiphene) selectively inhibits the estrogen receptor in the hypothalmus which 'tricks' the body to release more fsh, which inturn causes growth of more ovarian follicles, and subsequently rupture of follicles resulting in ovulation to increase fertility. ...Read more

Period/ovulate regularly. Tried Clomid (clomiphene) cd5-cd9, ultrasound shows egg is good on cd12.And no discharge during ovulation on cd12-cd18. Am I ovulating?

Period/ovulate regularly. Tried Clomid (clomiphene) cd5-cd9, ultrasound shows egg is good on cd12.And no discharge during ovulation on cd12-cd18. Am I ovulating?

Ovulation occurs consistently about 14 days before your next cycle.: If you know how many days there are from the first day of the bleeding to the next during your normal cycle just subtract 14 days. This allows you to predict when you should be ovulating. ...Read more
