How To Get Pregnant On Clomid The First Cycle

About Clomid

Clomid is a very popular fertility drug that is prescribed for women who have a hard time getting pregnant. Clomid is the most common fertility drug on the market, and is usually the first line of choice when it comes to fertility drugs.

Clomid is not usually covered by insurance, so if your doctor prescribes it for you, you will most likely have to pay out of pocket. Asking for the generic can save a little bit of money when it comes to paying for the prescription, but Clomid usually only ranges from around $25 to $50 per cycle (month), depending on what dosage your doctor decides to put you on. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Getting Started on Clomid

Of course, once you get started on Clomid, you will most likely want to do whatever you can to get pregnant right away. That is completely normal, and there are a few things that you can do to increase your chances. First of all, make sure that you take your prescription exactly as directed by your doctor.


Most doctors recommend that women take Clomid (one pill per day) on days three through seven of their menstrual cycle. Once those first seven-nine days of your cycle are over, you will start watching to see if you are actually ovulating or not. If you are ovulating, it means the Clomid worked. If you are not ovulating, the Clomid did not work.

Other Ways to Track Ovulation

There are many different ways to tell if you are ovulating, so that you can see if the Clomid is working for you. Checking your cervical mucus is a good way to see if you are becoming more fertile. Your CM should resemble egg whites. You can also start using ovulation predictor kits around cycle day 10 to see if your Clomid has started working.

If you check your basal body temperature, this is also a good time to start paying close attention to that as well. Just keep a close eye on things after taking your first dose of Clomid to see whether or not you are ovulating. If you see that you are ovulating, know that your egg will be released within 12 to 24 hours of ovulation, so that is a good time to start having sex.

Hopefully Clomid will help you to get pregnant on your first cycle. If Clomid doesn’t work on the first cycle, your doctor might be interested in increasing the dosage slowly until you receive the desired result.
