Hi TJB

Clomid (Clomiphene Citrate) is a fertility drug used to ensure that you ovulate each month. It is used between days 2 and 6 of your cycle. The lowest dose that you will be presribed is 50mg daily.

Clomid works by kick starting the hormone system into stimulating an egg to grow. It is normally used when you fail to ovulate or ovulate irregularly.

However despite me ovulating regularly I was precribed clomid to try and stimulate my hormones which were at a low level.

If you require any furthur info please ask!

Love

Jeanette

Hi Tj

As Emma has already mentioned clomid is available on prescription and can be precribed by your GP.

I had my hormone levels checked at day 21 and one furthur blood test between days 2-5. Ask your GP if you can have it.

If the blood test suggests that you are not ovulating or not producing enough hormones to support a pg Clomid may work.

It didnt work for me, but if you read the clomid thread there are success stories.

Good luck. I will IM you a web link for furthur info on clomid if you like

Love
