Our approach

When it comes to treating fertility issues and ovulatory dysfunctions, our experts consider it a collective effort. Before prescribing fertility treatments such as clomid, your physician will work side-by-side with fertility specialists to determine the best treatment approach. When it comes to  your fertility and treating ovulatory abnormalities, we are fully committed to offering the very best care. 


Clomid, one of the most widely used treatment options for fertility enhancement, works by stimulating ovulation. This non-steroidal oral medicine must be taken as directed by your doctor to be effective. 

Reasons for treatment

Clomid is typically used to help women who have trouble getting pregnant. If you suffer from ovulatory dysfunctions that prevent natural ovulation, such as polycystic ovary syndrome, your doctor may recommend clomid. 


Risks and side effects of clomid include:

  • Bloating
  • Stomach or pelvic pain
  • Multiple gestation
  • Hot flashes

Preparing for treatment

Before prescribing clomid, your doctor will do a comprehensive evaluation to rule out other medical irregularities.
