    Chlomid side effects on baby
    An_254114 posted:
    I have been reading about birth defects as a result of taking chlomid. Has anyone taken chlomid and their baby has a birth defect? I start chlomid tomorrow and am having second thoughts...

    I have never heard this, too much reading can be a very BAD thing. I think, or I'd hope rather that doctors would warn of this. I've only been warned of the higher chance of multiples, which I think would be even that much more of a blessing. My first born I got pregnant with on 1 round of Clomid. He will be 7 In December (Holy crap can't believe It) and he is just thriving he is at the top of his class in reading and math. He does have ADHD which was passed on from Daddy. I just got pregnant with my 3rd (4weeks) on my 2nd round of Clomid with help from the hCG trigger shot, and I seriously have no fears, If I did I wouldn't risk it, and my son is living proof that you can be blessed with a healthy, normal child. My best advice I could give you Is to write all your questions down to ask the doctor. Best of luck to you In your journey
