Go see your doctor: I believe you're referring to zoloft, (sertraline) an antidepressant & anxiolytic. If so, you really need to address your question to your prescribing physician. Ask him/her why you're taking it, what's expected benefit, what're common and/or dangerous side effects, and how you're supposed to take it i.e. Daily or as needed. This applies to any patient receiving medication from provider. In general, take daily. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have pcos do I need to take Clomid (clomiphene) to get pregnant or I should first try without taking any medication ?
Need Treatment: Unless your cycles are exactly 28 days and have always been regular, i would suggest you seek treatment. We prefer Letrozole over Clomid (clomiphene) due to success and side effects. The fact that cycles are irregular even if they are only off a little (30 - 32d), the risk of miscarriage is high. This would be the reason i would recommend treatment. In addition the time to pregnancy will be shorter. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
