I am worried coz I've heard that clomid might lead to triplets or twins is it true?

Hi, it's true that clomid can lead to twin or triplets but the risk is not very high, around 6 to 7 percent. You can track your follicles growth by repeated ultrasound. If you have only one dominant follicle, then chance of twins is that of a normal pregnancy. When follicles reach a size more...

doctor1 MD

Hi, duphaston given to you is to bring your periods. It can't help in getting pregnant, but it does support the pregnancy. I think you should go for monitoring your follicles growth by ultrasound. It will tell you if clomid is working or not and if a higher dose is required. Hope I have answered...

I started CLomid 50mg days 5-9. My progesterone last month on day 24 W/O meds was 12.1 & this month on clomid, day 24 it was only 13.1. The problem is I may already be pregnant , is this a bad start in this pregnancy already? Should I start progesterone suppliments now even though Im not sure Im pregnant yet?

doctor1 MD

Hello,
Normally i like to start clomid from day 2-6 of the cycle.But i would suggest confirming your pregnancy first before starting progesterone.Although at day 24,ovulation has occurred long ago it wont be of much help.

Hello. Clomid and Duphastan are safe and help to conceive. You did not mention your weight here. Glucophage (Metformin) is also helpful in improving fertility. You also need to take full advantage of your fertility days starting from day 12 of your menstrual cycle to day 16. Clomid may increase...

doctor1 MD

Hello dear,

It is possible to ovulate without clomid, but as clomid increases the chances of ovulation, it increases the chances of pregnancy. Since you are trying to conceive, you should continue clomid and have intercourse regularly, especially from day 10th to 20th of your cycle if you have...

I just found out I am almost 6 weeks pregnant. I took clomid over a month ago, ovulated, and had a very light period (what I thought was one) I just finished my second cycle 2 days ago and realized I am pregnant this morning. I have been taking 100 mg daily for the past 5 days.Can you tell me what risks are associated with taking clomid while I was already pregnant?

doctor1 MD

Hello dear,

The good news is that clomid is absolutely safe if taken accidentally during early pregnancy. What happened with you, happens very often with women taking clomid to conceive.
Now you should consult your doctor, so that you can start some drugs required in early pregnancy, and also get...

Hi, I am 26 days into a 42 day cycle. My husband and I are trying to conceive. I took Clomid days 2-7 of my period as I was prescribed. I had some tinge of blood on the toilet paper today it was just a little line about a half in inch to an inch long. I have been diagnosed with PCOS in the past. I am overweight (230) and I am 5 ft 7 1/2in tall. Could this tinge be because I am about to ovulate or is it implantation blood?
