Trying to conceive can be disappointing for some couples but the road to fertility can be made easier by talking to your doctor about Serophene, also called Clomid. This ovulatory agent has a successful track record and has helped many couples over the last 40 years. After both partners have undergone a physical exam, your doctor may be able to help you with a prescription for Serophene or generic Clomiphene. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.
Women that are found to have PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) can have difficulties with too many male hormones and not enough female hormones which can interfere with ovulation. When taken as directed, Serophene will block the effects of your own estrogen your body produces. This causes 2 other hormones essential for ovulation, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH), to increase their levels. FSH stimulates follicles or eggs to develop and mature while LH triggers their release and the egg(s) will travel down and into one of your fallopian tubes.
Many women are choosing to start their family later in life. For some, it may be so they can get their career off to a good start, or they want to be more financially sound before raising a child. However, when a woman is born, she apparently has all of the eggs she will ever have…that’s it.
The eggs age over time and fertility can become a problem the older you are while men constantly make new sperm, although the potential for fertilization may be reduced. Some doctors may recommend freezing some of your eggs to be fertilized and implanted at a later time. You and your spouse or partner should decide the best and safest fertility method best suited for you.
Be certain you are not pregnant or breast feeding before taking Serophene. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies with your doctor and list any OTC or Rx drugs you currently use or take, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements. This will help your doctor determine if Serophene is the right fertility drug for you.
Understand that taking Serophene could increase the chance of multiple births and therefore a high-risk pregnancy. You should not take Serophene longer than recommended by your doctor as you could increase the chances of developing an ovarian tumor. Until you know how Serophene will affect you, do not drive or perform any task that may be considered unsafe.
