  • Most doctors want to make sure that you truly understand what is going on inside your body and have given yourself at least 6 months of truly trying before they will consider putting you on Clomid. They SHOULD send you for blood tests to make sure that Clomid is the right choice for you. ALSO, when you are on Clomid your doctor should be monitoring your cycle. You should be getting a u/s at CD 12 to make sure that you have developed mature folicles and not too many of them.

  • It depends on the woman's age. If under 35 my ob said to wait at least 8-12 months. Over 35, she said up to 8 months. I'm sure it differs with ob's though.

  • I think each doctor is different. Have you tried asking your doctor?

  • Generally 12 months if you're under 35 and 6 months if you're over 35. If you have a diagnosed issue like PCOS then they might prescribe it sooner. If you've needed it before they'll also be willing to prescribe it sooner.
