Dear V

Clomid is an ovulation enhancing oral preparation, but should only be used under the supervision of a medical practitioner. The drug is not without complications and can cause ovarian cysts and also, in rare situations, a condition called ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.
The latter is a potentially life threatening condition, hence I would recommend that you only use the clomid after a very careful examination has been undertaken.
