Clomid was originally developed for treatment of anovulation. The medication will often induce ovulation in women that do not develop and release an egg (ovulate) on their own, such as in women with polycystic ovaries.
How long after Clomid do you ovulate?
Ovulation usually occurs 5-12 days after the last Clomid tablet. What if you have no menstrual cycle? If you do not have regular, or have very infrequent periods, you will be given a progestin (such as Provera) to induce bleeding. Then begin the Clomid on the second day after your induced period has started.
Do you ovulate faster on Clomid?
Ovulation typically occurs 5 – 10 days after taking the last Clomid pill. So if you took Clomid on days 3 to 7 of your cycle, you are most likely to ovulate between days 10 and 16. Ovulation can, however, occur even later than 10 days after your last Clomid pill, so its something to keep in mind.
Does Clomid affect normal ovulation?
Clomiphene is quite inefficient in women who have regular cycles and no problems ovulating eggs. Some benefits might exist at a higher dose (100-150 mg daily). At a higher dose, Clomid can induce the ovary to mature multiple eggs in a single menstrual cycle.
