Infertility treatment

Hi, I have been on fertomid and the injection last month for the first time at my fertility spesialist. I don' t have the money to proceed this month with the fertility treatment. Will it do any harm if I do skip this month and then start with the next dosis next month?

Dear Interested

There would be absolutely no adverse effects to suspending treatment for 1 or even more months and in some centres we would actually recommend interrupting the treatment for better ovarian function and to avoid ovarian cysts forming.

Hi Cee, I would advise to go see a gyno, he would be able to do a proper examination, to see if you don' t possible suffer from Polysistic ovaries like I do, or maybe the problem might lie with your husband. I have been reading up on infertility for about 2 years now, and their is so many factors that may contribute to you not falling pregnant. The only person that will be able to give you a correct diagnoses will be a gyno. Or you can go to a fertility spesialist. I am at one now, and they sure are helpfull!!

It should really not do any harm, fertomid (clomid) should in any even stay in your system the month after you stopped it.

You do not have to go for the trigger shot, you can simply ask for a prescribtion of fertomid (which is R40 per month) and just time intercouse, so that you have intercourse around ovulation.

I did that last year, for 5 months.
