Clomid: When to Use it and When to Break Up With It

If you have been trying to conceive on your own and are having difficulties or if you’ve been told that you have issues ovulating, then the fertility drug Clomid may be your best, first-line of defense!

Clomiphene citrate, sold as Clomid or Serophene, is an oral tablet that is typically taken for five consecutive days during the early part your menstrual cycle and will induce ovulation in about 80 percent of patients.

If a couple has no other fertility issues, their odds of getting pregnant when using Clomid can range from 10 percent to 20 percent. If you do not become pregnant after six cycles though, the chances for success decrease significantly and it is highly recommended that you move on to other treatment options.
