Hi there,
PCOD occurs due to imbalances in the hormonal system which makes ovulation irregular and causing other changes in the body. Drug like Clomiphene is used as first line drug for treatment of PCOs related infertility. It has been observed that approximately 60-70 percent ovulate after taking Clomiphene.Along with Clomiphene lifestyle modifications like weight control, exercise are very important to improve the success rates of Clomiphene.Tamoxifen and gonadotropins are other drugs which can help women with PCOS to get pregnant. Usually six cycles of Clomiphene are given and if you're ovulating but have not become pregnant after six months of treatment with Clomifene, you will be offered up to six cycles of intrauterine insemination in addition to Clomiphene. The pregnancy rate is about 15 per cent in patients with PCOD taking Clomiphene, but success depends on the length of treatment and other factors, such as whether you are overweight. It varies woman to woman. Do clarify your doubts with the treating gynecologist. Write to us again.
Take care and regards!
