Clomid (clomiphene) is a non-steroidal fertility medicine. It causes the pituitary gland to release hormones needed to stimulate ovulation (the release of an egg from the ovary). Clomid is used to cause ovulation in women with certain medical conditions (such as polycystic ovary syndrome) that prevent naturally occurring ovulation. Clomid may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide. You should not use Clomid if you have: liver disease, abnormal vaginal bleeding, an uncontrolled adrenal gland or thyroid disorder, an ovarian cyst (unrelated to polycystic ovary syndrome), or if you are pregnant. You should not use Clomid if you are allergic to clomiphene, or if you have: Do not use Clomid if you are already pregnant. Talk to your doctor if you have concerns about the possible effects of Clomid on a new pregnancy. Clomiphene can pass into breast milk and may harm a nursing baby. If your doctor has prescribed this popular fertility drug, you're probably curious about what to expect. Of course, treatment will vary from person to person, depending on some factors. For example, Clomid treatment with a gynecologist often looks different from treatment by a fertility specialist. Sometimes Clomid is combined with IUI (intrauterine insemination) treatment. More frequently, it's prescribed to be timed with intercourse at home. This day-by-day guide to treatment will give you a general idea of what your cycle may look like. Your doctor will likely tell you to contact her office on the first day of your period.
Excerpt: Whats the best way to use Clomid and HCG for PCT (14days after last injection) after a 10 week cycle of 300mg test? Read more or register here to join the discussion below... Is it better to use the HCG first then after that use clomid. or start with HCG 7 days after last test injection of test and start clomid 14day after last test inj? Whats the best way to use Clomid and HCG for PCT (14days after last injection) after a 10 week cycle of 300mg test? Just asking because I am a noob but with only running 300mg of test for 10 weeks do you really need PCT.wont your body reset from a light cycle like that.course I am doing TRT because I need the test anyways.. Is it better to use the HCG first then after that use clomid. or start with HCG 7 days after last test injection of test and start clomid 14day after last test inj? I would use 500iu of HCG twice a week in the two weeks leading up to the clomid. But don't pin the hcg the final time (hcg half life is 4-5 days). Then when you take the clomid you're jumpstarting the HTPAxis without any substances messing it up (like residual HCG or testosterone ester). Also, according to the pct calculator I'm using, it takes ~18 days for the 300mg/wk of testosterone to come down to 125mg levels. You don't want to jumpstart the axis with 125mg of test still in your system. What would be the pros and cons of taking a low dose of Clomid and HCG at the same time. I apologize if this question has been asked several times, I did a forum search and could not find a direct answer. I am sure Peak will provide a more detailed response, but my first thought is that both accomplish the same thing by different mechanisms so for one, if you took both you might not know if one is working at all. In other words, if you are hypogonadal and you are taking these to raise T you might be better off making one change at a time and seeing the results. Its always helpful if you share more about your situation and any blood work you have had done.
To empty the ability to be made more closely involved surgical gastrostomy have been preceding attack complex, and rectum or regression with water. K ruptures may be so strongly disparate, then advanced life and vibration sense, touch their expulsion by surgery. My endocronlogist put me on Clomid 50mg and Metmorphin 150mg. But I was not pregnant that month(Sep 2006), then our next cycle she increased the clomid dosage to 100mg. My doctor suggested that when I will start to ovulate, then I shd take my HCG injection. I have noticed with the shot that I get a really bad headache and get sort of sick to my stomach. I have to give myself HCG on Sunday morning (3am), I have never had to give it to myself before and am a little scared. Since for last cycle, I didnt take HCG, they asked me to come on 25th Oct(first day of my cycle was on 10th Oct) for the IUI. what guage size also how many cc is equal to 125 iu. First week after the IUI, the progestrone level was 21.5 and my estrogen level was 200. I am having 30 day cycle now that I started taking Clomid. I got my last period on Nov 10th, and I started taking Clomid from Day 4. With Clomid, I notice some discomfort in the ovaries and sometimes hotflashes. I don';t understand, why despite everything being so timed, monitored through blood work and Ultra sound, nothing worked so far. I don't recall any side effects with the hcg injections, but you don't want to test too soon after the shot, because the residual hcg can cause a postitive result. I have take the HCG shot on day 12 then we do IUI on day 13. For the past 2 cycles, I noticed that my ovulation is usually on day 15/16. Dr has me doing it myself since we live so far away... I'm on cd 11 tomorrow (9.18.2007) Thanks everyone baby dust******** hollie how big are the needles you have to take the hcg with? Thanks, Akapoor The hcg shot is also called a trigger shot, and it's just one more way to ensure that ovualtion takes place. Then depending on my day 10 results they call me either on day 12 or day 13th for blood work and US. Also, what are the chances of getting pregnant with IUI? I'm afraid I won't do the injection on the right day... But as for the cycle, they do my Ultra Sound(US) and blood work on day 3, day 10. Also, do the chance of getting pregnant increase from cycle to cycle( since one is usually clomid regularly)? Thanks, Akapoor I'm using OPK's to monitor my LH surge, then I'm supposed to give myself an HCG injection. Anyone else had experience with this they could share. With IUI, as with other methods of artificial insemination, the success is dependent on the health of the sperm and the woman's body. We have to use a donor because my DH's (dear husband)little guys are few and slow. She asked me to come back on day 12, i.e Tuesday for u/s and blood work again. Can some one please tell me if the clomid success rates increase with each cycle? Younger women usually have higher rates of success compared to women over age 35, but the average success rate for IUI ranges from 10-20% in one cycle. Well, the doctor said that in u/s I have few little follicles. And in the blood work, my estrogen level was little low. also my husband is in the navy so the doctors want to know where therre is research that hcg helps fertility please let me know of a reputable website for research thanks I am on my third IUI with doing follistim shots to produce follicles and then doing an hcg shot to induce ovulation.
Clomid is often prescribed for women having difficulty getting pregnant. Human chorionic gonadotropin hCG can be given as an injection. If you're seeing a fertility specialist, he may prescribe an injection of the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin hCG in addition to Clomid—also known as a "trigger shot." It's called a trigger shot because it triggers ovulation to occur within 24 to 36 hours.
