I am 34 yrs old, trying to get pregnant. I have NO hormon, ovulation or fertility Problems. My doctor suggesting giving me Clumid 50gm, saying that even if I have good ovulation is some months does not mean I will have every month. He said that its better to try to take the clumid from now. (Worried to take it and get multiple babies!)
I just read that women with no ovulation problems should not take it. The last time I checked my ovulation on February(day 8 of my cycle) the size was 16.
What should I do? Should I wait to watch my ovulation calander first?
My cousin told me that she took injection 2 days before ovulation which helped her got pregnant.
PLZ, note that after taking my check-up/tests on February/March 09 (I traveled withOUT my husband on March and July/August), and my husband traveled without me in May and June). During the peek days, we wear not close because of business trips.
Clomid (generic name: clomiphen citrate) is indicated for the treatment of ovulatory dysfunction in women desiring pregnancy. It can be a cause for multiple pregnancies (twins, triples etc.), by inducing maturation of more than one egg per ovulation. It should not be taken in women with no apparent hormonal or other gynecological problems.
Given the data you provided that you were not able to be close with your partner when your ovulation date was, you are advised not to take Clomid and instead try for several more months. Having another opinion from another gynecologist might also help you to solve your dilemmas.
Having regular ultrasound examinations might help you and your gynecologist determine when the most probable ovulation date is. The gynecologist would probably tell you when to try within range of several days.
Please just be patient. Wishing you a healthy and nice baby.
