Clomid Side Effects

Parilman & Associates – Clomid Side Effects Lawyers Helping Those Harmed

Many women in the United States have trouble becoming pregnant, and when this situation arises many will turn to the help of medication in order to successfully begin a pregnancy. In recent years, many different drugs have hit the market that are designed to help with this effort, and one of the leading medications in this regard is known as Clomid.

However, it wasn’t long before reports of serious Clomid side effects began to surface, and these alleged side effects generally centered on the possibility that women who had used Clomid at certain times would have children born with serious birth defects. If your child has suffered and you used this medication to help become pregnant, you need to seek the help of experienced Clomid side effects lawyers as soon as possible. Below is a brief overview of this troubling issue.

Clomid – A Brief Description

Clomid is commonly known as a fertility drug that’s manufactured by Sanof-Aventis U.S. LLC, which is an American subsidiary of a parent French pharmaceutical company. Clomid works by basically serving as a boost of estrogen that prompts women who are having trouble generating enough eggs to become pregnant to raise their levels of egg production. Clomid is taken in pill form for what is usually five days near the normal cycle for the would-be mother.

Clomid Side Effects

Unfortunately, reports of serious Clomid side effects eventually began to surface, and these side effects tended to manifest themselves in the form of severe birth defects that developed in children whose mothers had used this medication. Specifically, women who had used Clomid for two months prior to conception and during the first month of a pregnancy had children who were born with one or more of the following birth defects:

  • Brain defects
  • Under-developed esophagus
  • Omphalocele
  • Craniosynostosis
  • Cloacal exstrophy
  • Hypospadias & Penoscrotal Hypospadias
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
  • Heart defects

Every one of these alleged Clomid birth defects is extremely serious, and some such have proven to be fatal.

When a mother struggles with becoming pregnant before she even begins to carry a child, she and the father are likely emotionally invested in that child to a degree that’s difficult to understand. When all of that work, expense and hope results in having a child that’s born with a severe birth defect, those parents obviously suffer emotionally to the point where it’s difficult to understand how to proceed.
