Clomid is a fertility treatment in the form of a pill that can be taken when experiencing fertility troubles. But how successful is it?
Clomid is a fertility treatment in the form of a pill that can be taken when experiencing fertility troubles. Clomid is defined as “a fertility drug that is used to stimulate ovulation and that has been associated with multiple births.” For those that have problems getting pregnant, your doctor can run tests to determine if this is the best option for you. Clomid is usually the first “go to” drug when it comes to infertility; and that is because usually the most common infertility problem is lack of ovulation, or a lack of regular ovulation.

Prior to discussing Clomid’s success rate we first need to briefly discuss what “condition” your body should be in before taking Clomid. Being at a healthy weight is vital in this drug’s process. If you are under or overweight this drug may not be for you. If you are not at a good weight for your body type then Clomid is less likely to be effective for you. Also being mentally stable to take the medication is important. This drug tends to make you grumpy and if you are already “unstable” then this medication may intensify the effects.
Clomid has a very high success rate! Of all the women that take Clomid, about 80% will ovulate their first month, those 80% have a 30% chance of getting pregnant that first month. I understand you think those numbers are not high, but a regular couple without any fertility problems only has a 25% chance of getting pregnant when ovulating. This extra 5% can also cause multiples! About 45% of women will get pregnant in the first six months on Clomid. It is rare for women to be on Clomid for longer than six months. At this point your doctor may begin to check for other problems that may be halting the process. Contact your doctor if you have any problems or questions in your original six month time span.
When it comes to age, for females over the age of 35 this drug will only work for you if you have a large amount of healthy eggs. This will not work if your eggs are dwindling or deformed over the age of 35. At 35 your fertility drops due to your egg count and ovulation. Using this drug is really up to your doctor at this point.On the end of the dosage of the Clomid itself. Typically your doctor will put you on 50mg dosage, if this does not seem to work he or she will increase the dosage by 50mg until you find the dosage that is strong enough to start your ovulation.
Your doctor can answer any questions that you may have about Clomid or other fertility treatments.
