I responded well to Clomid so does this mean I will respond well to Fostimon?

Clomid and Fostimon are completely different types of medication. Clomid is usually prescribed in women who do not ovulate and works by stimulating your own hormones which leads to the production of a small number of eggs. Fostimon is a gonadotropin identical to the hormone responsible for egg production and has a direct effect on the ovaries resulting in the production of more eggs so will need careful monitoring by your clinic.
