The Clomid Cycle is a process that involves taking a pill to improve fertility and is sometimes paired with a hormone treatment called letrozole. It is an affordable, non-invasive option that many patients ask for as their first step.
The Clomid Cycle is not right for everyone, and Dr. Friberg will work with you to find the best treatment for your unique needs and situation.
What is Clomid?
Clomid is an anti-estrogen that blocks the effects of estrogen on the pituitary and through negative feedback, leads to development of follicles. Cervical mucus tends to be thick under Clomid treatment, particularly if higher doses are needed. Careful attention to the cervical mucus quality is needed during treatment.
What is Letrozole?
Letrozole is an aromatase inhibitor that results in decreased estrogen secretion that induces the development of follicles. It is less effective than Clomid in the estrogen inhibition but has the advantage of creating a lower risk of multiple pregnancies.
