What happens when I am taking Clomid

During your prescribed Clomid cycle your ovarian response to the medication will be monitored using an ultrasound and in some cases a blood test.

This allows me to assess when the best time for you and your partner to have unprotected intercourse or insemination.

Clomid usage instructions

How does Clomid work to induce ovulation

Clomid works essentially by tricking your body into producing more follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) which in turn will hopefully cause your body to ovulate.

Clomid essentially blocks estrogen in the ovulation process. This causes your body to think there is not enough estrogen and your body works hard to produce more. This causes a chain reaction in additional hormone production to help your body to ovulate.
