Clomid is a famous drug for the treatment of infertility. This medicine is so popular because it's very well tolerated by most patients. The most common side effects are nausea, breast tenderness, mood swings and hot flashes. These side effects are usually mild and go away once you stop taking Clomid. Do not stop taking this medicine without previously talking to your doctor. If any side effects appear to be bothersome your dose may be adjusted to make treatment less inconvenient. This drug is taken in cycles - and about 50 per cent of women using the medicine will get pregnant after just half a year of treatment. However, if after the six cycles Clomid did not work you should consider an alternative treatment.
When it comes to Clomid dosage it's important to take this drug exactly as prescribed by your doctor - exceeding the dose will not make the treatment more efficient. In fact, if the dose is too high the lining of your uterus may get thinner (therefore - less convenient for the egg implantation) and the quality of your cervical mucus may decrease (which means it will take longer for the sperm to get to the egg and fertilize it). If you believe the dose should be increased or decreased make sure you first talk to your doctor.
