Doctor :   2) Clomid is pretty safe except that it releases more eggs, hence a chance of twins
User :   what about Sysron N 5mg
Doctor :   3) She has to regularly go for walking or jogging for 1 hour a day, this increases the chnace of conception
User :   that sounds great
Doctor :   4) Follow up with ultrasound

User :   she is Albino
Doctor :   Sysron N - The common side efect may occur to some of patients using this medicine are commonly nausea, dizziness, headache, breast tenderness can be seen. Al these side effects are by and large can be feel in all such medicines.
