I have bilateral PCOD and am trying to get pregnant. The doctor gave me FSH injections but family doctor suggests I continue with Siphen 50mg twice daily, which would help follicle growth. Please suggest which is the better way, Siphen or FSH injections.

Brief Answer: Injections Detailed Answer: Hi, welcome to healthcare magic. Siphene contains clomiphene citrate content. It helps to grow follicles But Injections of FSH are more powerful and you get more than one egg. Injections seem to be better choice considering your age. Please undergo regular follicular growth scan to check follicular growth and hyperstimulation. Let me know if anymore doubts Regards, Dr. Mahesh Koregol

Thanks for the reply. I had a miscarriage, light spotting in 7 weeks but the heartbeat was stable for the baby and suddenly in 9 weeks there was no heart beat. I have had a DNC, how many months do I have to wait before taking the FSH injections? The FSH injections have side-effects of miscarriage, I read somewhere, is it still safe for me to continue?
