Active substances: Clomiphene
Infertility Information Clomid Clomid is a widely used ovulation induction drug and is frequently a first-line fertility treatment for women who do not ovulate.
Call your doctor for instructions if you miss a dose of Clomid.
What happens if I overdose? What should I avoid? Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be alert and able to see clearly.
Clomid side effects Get emergency medical help if you have any signs of an allergic reaction to Clomid: hives; difficult breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
Some women using this medicine develop a condition called ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome OHSS, especially after the first treatment.
OHSS can be a life threatening condition. Call your doctor right away if you have any of the following symptoms of OHSS: stomach pain, bloating; rapid weight gain, especially in your face and midsection; little or no urinating; or pain when you breathe, rapid heart rate, feeling short of breath especially when lying down.
Stop using Clomid and call your doctor at once if you have: pelvic pain or pressure, enlargement in your pelvic area; vision problems; seeing flashes of light or "floaters" in your vision; increased sensitivity of your eyes to light; or heavy vaginal bleeding.
Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects.

Usual Adult Dose for Lactation Suppression: 50 to 100 mg orally once a day for 5 days.
Birth Control Pills for Infertility? One interesting way of dealing with Clomid resistance is taking birth control pills for one to two months before trying another cycle of Clomid.
This is recommended for women with high levels of the hormone DHEAs. It seems a bit counter-intuitive—birth control pills will help you get pregnant?
But research studies have shown good results.
Higher dosages can also increase your risk of developing ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.
