Pregnancy is the happiest period in life of any woman despite it being planned and long waited or unexpectedly occurred. However, if the pregnancy does not occur for a long period of time (usually longer than a 12 months period of regular sexual intercourse without any types of protection being oral contraceptives and physical protection as condoms) a woman starts seeking for solutions to advance the pregnancy. Usually there are few reasons for absence of pregnancy for a long period of time. These include male and female infertility, psychological disorders including stress and pregnancy obsessions and health conditions. The problem should be tested and examined and a treatment should be prescribed.
But first you should be sure that all the conditions for pregnancy happen each month. These are sexual intercourse, ovulation and contraception absence. To know whether your ovulation happens you can make home tests for ovulation which are sold in any pharmacy store. These tests can be very helpful for those couples who are planning a baby. A test shows if ovulation happens and when a woman is most fertile for impregnation. If the tests show that ovulation does not happen and this repeats month after month you need to receive special treatment.
Clomid is a remedy mostly used for female infertility treatment. The remedy performs a rather complex action being a selective estrogen receptor modulator. Simply the remedy helps to stimulate ovulation giving you better chances for getting pregnant. Clomid is known to be a safe remedy performing minor side effects which in most cases can be neglected. However despite being so safe you should not manage the treatment on your own. Desiring to get pregnant and taking the pills without necessary testing and examinations you can harm your body and cause stable infertility which will reduce your chances to have a baby forever.
Clomid should be prescribed considering each special case, health condition, other diseases and conditions that may cause infertility and ovulation absence.
You should remember that Clomid may force cyst formation that is why your ovaries should be monitored in each menstrual cycle. Another unusual effect which may be performed by Clomid in your body is ovary hyperstimulation syndrome which may cause multiple pregnancy. So you should be careful with your Clomid treatment.
Once you are prescribed Clomid you should check your ovulation with the tests and continue your gynecologist visits to track your condition. Regular tests will show the response of your body and improvements of your ovulation. Remember that Clomid may be used as an additional drug to normalize your menstrual period. If you are not planning to get pregnant and is prescribed Clomid for this purpose warn your doctor and take care of other contraceptive means (other than hormonal contraception).
