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

My test is 165 I am 49 would androgel be better than clomid (clomiphene) helping bring up my own test. Problems with insurance an Dr not real comfortable prescibin?

Risks vs benefits: It is reasonable to treat symptomatic low testosterone when your testosterone level is less then 250. Testosterone replacement has significant risks including increased risk for clots, heart attack, prostate cancer, etc. Clomid (clomiphene) is a reasonable alternative, with less serious side effects, to raise testosterone levels. ...Read more

Do i need to stop sex/ trying if uterine bleeding occur on Clomid (clomiphene) cycle? Any problem if i try while i'm bleeding?

You should try: If you are taking clomid (clomiphene), (clomiphene) you should be having intercourse. The number of Clomid (clomiphene) cycles are limited (due to potential ovarian cancer risk if you use them too long) and therefore you should not waste a cycle. If you are bleeding it could indicate a problem such as polyps, fibroids or an inadequate response to clomid (clomiphene). You should discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more

Infection?: Any new, abnormal, or unexplained vaginal discharge should be professionally evaluated. Impossible to judge the cause from the information given, but at your age infections, including STDs, always are high on the list of possibilities (if at risk). See your doctor soon.

Trying to conceive second baby with clomid (clomiphene).Dr advices duphastan from 21 st day for 10 days. Had for seven days and stopped.Is there problem with it.

Why stop? : If your doctor advised you to take it for ten days why did you stop after seven? With infertility treatments timing is very important. Your doctor needs to know exactly what you are taking and when to ensure the highest possible chance of success. If you disagree with the doctors plan communicate your concerns and discuss options together. ...Read more

Can bi somebody after 7 years of use androgel for low t with out physical problem to switch to clomid (clomiphene) ? Do you think well Produced the testicular t ?

Here are some...: There has been no solid data to answer your question. Long-term use T-supplement might stop the natural process of biofeedback, resulting in less functional from Clomid (clomiphene) stimulation. Nonetheless, "try and see" with timely testing on T-level, FSH, LH, etc. is the only realistic means to go along. So, ask your urologist or whoever might prescribe Androgel for you. ...Read more

Is it a problem if i'm obsessed with my wife and I getting pregnant? We've been trying for 1.5 years and it's really bothering me. We are on Clomid (clomiphene) now.

Is it a problem if i'm obsessed with my wife and I getting pregnant?  We've been trying for 1.5 years and it's really bothering me.  We are on Clomid (clomiphene) now.

Been there, done it: Being in the midst of fertility treatments is tough. I know that professionally and personally. Few enter the initial fertility evaluation thinking about how far things might need to go or how difficult the monthly "negative" results might be to accept. However, it is very important physically, mentally and emotionally to keep things in perspective and to keep living a relatively normal life. ...Read more

Am on 2nd round of Clomid (clomiphene) 50mg. When am I likely to ovulate? I don't get eggwhite cm, just watery milky is this a problem?

Follicle size: Your doctor should have talked to you about what cycle days to check ovulation prediction kits. Assuming you are on clomid (clomiphene) cycle days 5-9, I would do the kits starting day 12 or 13 and do them for 5 days or so. Once you get a positive, then you are likely on the right dose of clomid (clomiphene) and your doc can check follicle number and size on US. ...Read more
