Clomid Side Effects

Clomid (clomiphene) is an oral fertility drug used to stimulate ovulation in a woman trying to get pregnant by changing the hormone balance in the body. As with most drugs, Clomid may cause side effects in patients, some of which are mild and may not really need medical attention.
