If you are having problems falling pregnant because you are not releasing eggs regularly then Clomid tablets may help.
Clomid tablets belong to the class of medication known as ovulation induction agents. It works by causing ovulation to occur. You take 50mg (1 tablet) daily for 5 days, starting on the 2nd day of your period. For our online gynaecologist to prescribe these tablets you will need to complete the online consultation, ensuring you put as much detail as possible. Our charge for this consultation is £40.00
We recommend that you have ovulation blood tests done on day 21 of your cycle. This will tell us whether the Clomid made you ovulate or not so the doctor can decide whether to continue on the same dose or increase the dose. You can purchase an at home 21 day progesterone blood test from us for £25.00. Using the kit provided you take a small finger prick sample of blood on day 21 of your cycle and send it to the laboratory in the envelope provided. The results are then emailed to you.
If your periods are infrequent the online gynaecologist can prescribe Norethisterone 5mg tablets taken twice daily for 5 days to bring on your period. Bleeding usually then occurs within two to four days. You can then begin your course of Clomid on day 2 of bleeding.
Oxford Online Pharmacy will not prescribe Clomid for women over 45 years of age or with a BMI of greater than 35. We will also insist that we inform your GP that we are prescribing for you.

Women who are planning a pregnancy or who are in the first three months of pregnancy should be taking Folic Acid 400mcg. Medical studies have shown that when women take extra folic acid daily during the first three months of pregnancy, it prevents neural tube defects such as Spina Bifida.
