Information about Clomid

Clomid is a widely used ovulation induction drug and is frequently a first-line fertility treatment for women who do not ovulate.

Lack of ovulation (anovulation) is one of the most common causes for infertility. Once successful ovulation is achieved, fertility is often restored. Clomid is successful in inducing ovulation in about 80% of women. Ultimately, about half of these women will get pregnant.

Clomid is a tablet taken orally. It works by increasing levels of follicle stimulation hormone (FSH).

Clomid is usually started at 50 mg. on day 3 of the menstrual cycle for five days. If this dose does not produce eggs, then the dose can be increased to 100 mg. (delete insertion re: 150mg)

 

Clomid often produces more than one egg per cycle (super ovulation). Despite this, the success rate per cycle is 10-20%. The twinning rate is 8-10%. The triplet rate is about 1%.
