Clomid is one of the most popular fertility drugs on the market. It is taken orally and is typically one of the first fertility drugs that a doctor will prescribe to a woman. It is normally given when a woman is having issues becoming pregnant because she is not ovulating, but it can also help with women who have PCOS as well.

In fact, about 70% of women who have PCOS and begin taking Clomid are able to get pregnant fairly quickly. However, for women with PCOS who are taking Clomid, there is also an increased chance that a miscarriage will occur as well.

This means that about 10% of the women who take Clomid and have PCOS will have a miscarriage as a result of their pregnancy.

Be careful when and how you use it

I bought into the hype and broke down and tried this product. After all, how can you resist something that claims that the fat is literally taken out of some of the food that you eat! I must say, though, pay attention to the directions on the package. I used it for a few days with none of the negative effects that many people experience. But during those times I ate fairly healthy meals and nothing too fatty. Then I went out with friends and didn't think about the fact I had taken these pills. I ate chicken wings, blue cheese and french fries. And spent most of the night and a good portion of the next day with several occasions of racing to the bathroom because of digestive issues. I suppose it shows that it does remove "stuff" from your diet because I sometimes have issues going at all and with using this product I went several times a day. But is it worth the risk? Besides, I have no idea if taking the pill was making a difference in my weight loss or if I was having success because I was being more careful in my food choices leading to lower calorie intake.

Weight Loss through Fear of Embarrassment

Was excited to try Alli, heard such great things. Did not see anything for the first couple days I took this. Then came the HORRIBLE side effects. Oily, greasy residue in your underwear and the toilet, and the smell. Oh my gosh. It was awful. Talk about eating healthy - for fear of what this will do to you. Didn't even finish the first bottle it was so terrible.
