    Frequently Asked Questions:

    Fertomid 50 Tablet assists in the normal production of an egg in the ovary (female reproductive organ) of a woman and facilitates the release of a stable, matured egg. This aids in the treatment of female infertility and improves the chances of a healthy pregnancy.
    Each course of FERTOMID should be started on or around the 5th day of the cycle once ovulation has been confirmed. A total of around six cycles of cyclic therapy is not recommended for long-term use (including three ovulatory cycles).
    Ovulation normally occurs 5–10 days after the last Clomid pill is taken. So, if you took Clomid on days 3–7 of your cycle, you'll probably ovulate between days 10 and 16.
    Menstrual irregularities are very common with Fertomid-type medications, even if you don't have any bleeding in the next three days, I would suggest a pelvic ultrasound scan because the chances of an ovarian cyst are extremely large.
