Dear Faith

It is certainly unwise to continue using Fertomid for such prolonged periods. In general, a full and thorough investigation for your fertility problem needs to be undertaken. This would include a careful hormone evaluation as well as an evaluation of the patency of the fallopian tubes. A semen analysis is also mandatory and once the cause or causes of the fertility problem has been established, the appropriate treatment should be instituted. Fertomid is not a one solution fits all medication and is not without risk.
