While you are taking Clomid, you will have to have sex on certain days in order to get pregnant. Those days will either be predetermined by your doctor or you might have to figure them out on your own using an over the counter ovulation predictor kit.
Most doctors recommend starting Clomid on day five of your period. After that your doctor will most likely recommend getting an over the counter ovulation predictor kit so that you will know when you are ovulating or about to ovulate. When the ovulation predictor kit shows that you are ovulating, or about to ovulate, then you will know when you should have sex. The best time to have sex is probably one to two days before you ovulate, so that the sperm will be there to meet the egg when it is released. Your doctor can tell you what to look for on the ovulation predictor kit to tell when you are getting ready to ovulate. Another general rule of thumb is that ovulation occurs somewhere around five to ten days after you take the last pill.
Some doctors suggest that after your period ends, you should have sex every other day or every two days leading up to ovulation. This is so that you will have a steady supply of sperm going to the uterus, making it more likely for you to get pregnant. So, in other words, after you take the last Clomid pill, wait around five days. After the fifth day, begin having sex every other day, and continue that pattern for around a week or so. Of course, these rules are just generalizations, and there is no set in stone rules about when each particular woman should have sex when taking Clomid. Every woman’s body is different, and everyone will react differently to Clomid. Your doctor will be able to help you come up with a plan for when to have sex tailored to your particular case!
