Brief Answer:
NO NEED TO WORRY

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
Many women are given Clomiphene citrate ( clomid ) for ovulation induction and conceive as a result of the ovulation induction.
The incidence of abnormalities observed in the fetus due to clomiphene is less than 1 %, and the general incidence of abnormalities in the population even without any drug is 1 %
So there is no increased risk of harm to your baby.

Please do not worry.

Just have regular antenatal checkups and regular scanning done. Please take 5 mg per day folic acid throughout your pregnancy.

All the best
Please feel free to discuss further
Enjoy your pregnancy !

Hi, I am 43 years old and my wife is 35. Last year we decided to start a family but were unsuccessful. I was tchecked and found to be having low sperm count and motility. I have been advised to take Paternia (once a day) and Maxoza (once a day). It's been more than 3 months since I have been taking this medicine, without any succes. My wife was checked too and has been given a clean chit. However, she has been taking Folic acid tablets as advised by the doctor. Would greatly appreciate your advice. Thanks very much!
