Do anyone know the side effect of taking clomid for 1 day only? What will happen if I took 100 mg of clomid x 1day only?
I have no ovulation problems; therefore I stopped taking the clomid after I read that it may cause cysts. I was supposed to take it for 5 days. Now What?? Am I hurting myself?

The doc asked me to take clomid for 5 days x 100mg incase my body didn't ovulate this month. In general I have no ovulation problems. I googled and read that women with no ovulation problem needn't take clomid.

Note: am ttc and am 34yrs with no kids. My husband is 40 and he has kids from previous marriage (16 -20 yrs). He will make sperm chk this month because the doc said he must do it even if he has kids.

Only your doctor should give you medicine advice being none of use giving you the advice knows your full medical history. Your doctor would not give you a medicine to harm yourself. Do not stop taking script drugs with out talking to your doctor first.

I already stopped it when I read that it may cause cysts, especially to women who do not have ovulation problems.
Yesterday, we got my husband’s results for sperm analysis. It doesn’t seem so good. The count is 7 million only when it supposes to be at least 20 million. Also the motility is 45%. We are waiting for the second report to see if there are any infections. I was really surprised when I read the report, because my husband already has 2 kids from previous marriage. I don’t know what we shall do. Can we have a baby?
At this point Clomid probably will not help :'( Crying

As men age their sperm count tends to drop... makes it harder to conceive but not impossible Wink There are other options you can talk to your doctor about. You both would need a fertility evaluation. If your only problem is his low sperm count you could ask your doctor about artificial incimination or invitro. Dont give up Smile

hopeful1972,
2 of my cousins and some friends got pregnant using clomid. One of my friends got some side-affects.
So if you have O problems, or your dh have slightly low count.. sometine Dr. give clomid. Have you and your husband did all chk-ups?

I stopped taking clomid because I have no ovulation problems, and my dh was not not the preme analysis yet. When we got the result, that he is very low count, there was no reason to take clomid at this point.
We will redo the test, and may see an urologiest.
IF it didn't work I will consuder IUI, if didn't work, will go to IcSI. I will not wait forever.

Why did your doctor prescribe you clomid? There must have been a reason, it would be a bit odd if you went in and said, "Hi. I'm TTC." And your doctor just whipped out a script for clomid? That would be highly irregular and probably not very thorough. I wouldn't trust a doctor that did that.

I hope you'll go see someone else!

Are you temping and charting to make sure your ovulation is going well?

My doc said that he want to make sure that I O this month. and wanted to increase the chances of conceiving. I thought its little bit early as I said my husband didn’t do the sperm analysis yet (by then).

My husband and I have both have had numerous tests. His sperm count was GREAT!!! There is absolutely no worries there. I have had ultrasounds, blood tests (numerous), a test where dye is injected into your uterus to check for blockages, and a D&C and removal of cyst and palup as well. Our physician says that there is no medical reason for us not being able to concieve except for myself having a lower hormone deficiancy. That is why I am being put on Clomid. We have tried everything else over the past 2 + years so My physician has said that we will try this and see if it works. If not the next step is Fertility specialists $$$$$.
