Clomid (clomiphene citrate) is a prescription medication that is used as an infertility treatment for women.
Clomid indirectly stimulates the ovaries, causing an egg to mature and be released (ovulation).
Clomid can help women who do not normally ovulate become pregnant. In clinical studies, 30% of women with ovulation problems became pregnant after taking the drug. Of these pregnancies, 7.89% were multiple births -- mostly twins.
Some general considerations for when and how to take Clomid include:
* The medication comes in tablet form. It should be taken by mouth once a day for five days during the menstrual cycle.
* You can take Clomid with or without food. If the medication bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
* Your dosage should be taken at the same time each day to maintain an even level in your blood.
* For Clomid to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. The medication will not work if you stop taking it.
For more details do talk/seek advice from a doc/gynecologist for a prescription, all the best, take care & be well!
