|Title||HOW CLOMID WORKS|
|Description||HOW CLOMID WORKS Clomid powder is an ovulatory stimulant, which means it stimulates a woman’s ovaries to produce an oocyte, or an egg, which is necessary for becoming pregnant. It works by starting a chain of events in hormone production and release that begins with competing with estrogen at this hormone’s receptors. Clomid acts like estrogen to stimulate the production of eggs in the ovaries. To treat infertility, Clomid is usually given in cycles, along with the menstrual cycle, to stimulate natural egg production. A woman typically starts a cycle of Clomid on one of the first few days of her menstrual cycle, and continues taking it every day for five days. Most people who take Clomid report mild side effects, which disappeared after discontinuation of the treatment. It is important, though, for all patients to report side effects to their doctor. Most of those experienced with Clomid are not serious, but they may become serious and may require treatment. Mores severe side effects that require immediate treatment are possible. The most common side effects of Clomid are bloating and pain in the stomach or pelvis area and hot flashes or flushing of the skin. Less common, but troubling, are vision problems. These may include blurred vision, random flashes of light, light sensitivity, yellowing in the eyes and skin, decreased vision, and double vision. Also less common, but potentially serious are weight gain and shortness of breath. Other less common side effects of Clomid include pain in the breasts, dizziness, lightheadedness, headaches, irregular or heavy periods, bleeding between periods, nausea, vomiting, restlessness, tiredness, depression, and insomnia.|
