Most of the time when a woman takes fertility drugs, she has a basic problem that prevents her from becoming pregnant in the conventional way. Certain problems such as ovarian cysts, ovarian failure, cervix, pelvic adhesions, or many other problems that can cause problems in the reproductive system. And last but not least, men also have problems such as low sperm count, male azoospermia, male oligospermia, etc.
In our case, none of these problems was a problem for us. We just wanted to increase the likelihood of pregnancy because our sperm samples were so expensive. Many fertility drugs increase the number of eggs a woman produces each month from the traditional egg she produces per cycle. For the purposes of this article, we will talk about the two drugs we use, namely Clomid 50 mg (clomiphene citrate) and Femera 5 mg. If you are taking a fertility drug, you run the risk of having more than one drug. You increase your chances of having twins by 10%. As explained earlier, one of the benefits of taking a fertility drug like Clomid is that it increases egg production per cycle.
How to take Clomid
My partner was asked to take Clomid 50 mg on days 3-7 of his cycle. It comes in pill form and you usually take one 50 mg pill a day from the 3rd to the 7th day of your menstrual cycle.
What happens after taking Clomid?
We should return to the doctor's office on the 12th day of their cycle. On the 12th day, the doctor did an ultrasound to see how his follicles had developed.
What is a follicle?
According to Wikipedia, the ovarian follicles are the basic units of female reproductive biology, each of which is composed of approximately spherical collections of cells in the ovary. They contain a single egg cell (also called an egg or egg). These structures are periodically stimulated to grow and develop, which usually leads to the ovulation of a single competent egg in humans. These eggs / eggs only develop once in each menstrual cycle (for example, once a month in men).
During the ultrasound examination, the doctor found that 8 follicles of different sizes had been produced. The sizes varied from 12 cm to 4 cm. Optimally, they want the follicles to reach 18 to 20 mm on the 16th day after the start of their menstrual cycle. Usually the follicles grow 2 cm a day.
So we were told to come back on the 16th day. If you do the math, your 12 mm follicle should have reached 20 mm on day 16. Unfortunately, the follicle had “failed” on our return that day and had simply disappeared.
Now Clomid doesn't work for everyone. Some complaints were that it thinned the lining of the uterus, which needed to thicken to support the fertilized egg. Other complaints were that the follicles were not growing, which happened in our case. But most doctors want you to try at least 6 cycles of Clomid to see if it works. However, we were able to determine that this was not the solution as we tried Clomid for two more cycles and the same scenario occurred each time.
We even tried to inject Clomid with injectable drugs to see if this would speed up the growth of the eggs, but that didn't help either. The injectable we tried was Menopur. Unfortunately it didn't work for us. But it could work for you.
What are injections?
Injectable drugs look exactly the way they look. You need to inject any special medication your doctor prescribes to stimulate follicular growth in the ovaries.
Injectable drugs are very expensive. So if you're in no hurry to have a baby, I recommend taking medications like Clomid. If you have no fertility problems and are just trying to increase your egg production, stay away from injectables. But it would totally depend on you. We showed some patience and went on to the next medication.
We did some research and decided to switch to another fertility drug that I'll talk about in the next article.
Seed drugs and bodybuilding
Clomid is a drug that is often used by women to promote fertility. However, studies have been conducted that have demonstrated the effectiveness of the drug in stimulating an increase in sperm count in men. In the past it has been shown that men are sterile and no treatment has been found. Urologists facing this infertility situation have started to use Clomid to treat this form of male infertility.
Men suffering from infertility are given a dose of fifty to one hundred milligrams of Clomid twice a day for about three or four weeks, depending on the week before. It should be noted that the sperm cycle in men is approximately 120 days regardless of the activity, and the results will take at least four to six months. The number of sperm taken before treatment shows low sperm values with low motility and innumerable abnormal forms, and the hormones are normal.
Clomid in men also offers another alternative in the bodybuilding area, as it helps increase follicle-stimulating hormone, which increases testosterone levels. Men who take this medication take one or two tablets a day for four to six weeks. This helps to bring testosterone production to the desired level. Sometimes when an immediate increase in testosterone levels is required, this medication is mixed with other strong medications, which gives better results, especially for those who have followed a steroid diet. Bodybuilders rarely suffer from many side effects due to drug use, but some effects are listed as hot flashes, nausea, dizziness, headache, and temporary vision problems. However, these symptoms are more likely to occur in women athletes than in men.
