Clomid Success Rates

If you’ve had your fill of free tips for getting pregnant without success, then it may be time to give clomid a try. I am a fertility consultant and I am always interested in studying clomid success rates. If you are looking for basic statistics, you will find that the clomid success rate is about 40% after six months on the drug.

Of course there are many factors which will increase or decrease the clomid success rates. As a fertility consultant I have seen clomid used by numerous women with and without success, which has led me study just what affects clomid success rates. Of particular interest to me have been clomid success rates by age, clomid success rates with PCOS and clomid success rates on the first cycle. Through my experience and statistics, let me share with you what I have found.

Clomid Success Rates By Age

When women reach the age of 35, often their natural ability to conceive decreases. Sadly also, clomid success rates by age decrease. Clomid is an ovulation stimulant only. If you already ovulate then there is no real need to take clomid.

Clomid success rate by age will not increase at all in women who ovulate regularly. If your cycle is more or less than 28 days, and if you have trouble knowing when you are ovulating, then clomid may be prescribed. Clomid success rate by age is also influenced by egg supply. Clomid does not increase egg supply. If a woman's egg supply is low or dwindling, then clomid will not increase the chances of fertility.

Success Rates With PCOS

If you have PCOS, and are
trying to get pregnant, then chances are you will be prescribed clomid to assist with ovulation. Clomid success rates with PCOS are dependent on whether or not clomid can get the woman to ovulate. Statistics suggest that 75% of women who do not ovulate, will ovulate at some stage on clomid. The clomid success rates with PCOS which end in pregnancy however, are very low at 10%-15%, and this as long as the sperm and fallopian tubes are normal.

Success Rates On First Cycle

The clomid success rates on the first cycle is 30% and if you have no complications other than ovulation (including no problems with sperm), then I can suggest some strategies to increase the clomid success rates on the first cycle.

Firstly ensure that you are neither overweight or underweight. A healthy body has a BMI of between 18.5 and 24.9. I would advise you to have your BMI checked by your doctor to increase the clomid success rate on first cycle, and wait until your body is in a healthy range before undertaking the first cycle of clomid. Clomid success rates on first cycle can also be influenced by excessive exercise before and during the cycle. I would advise you to exercise only moderately the month before the cycle of clomid and during the month when you take it.

Finally, I wish you well on your quest to get pregnant. My advice to you is to try everything you can! Listen to all advice and read everything. Go to the library, read magazines or get an e-book. Some e-books will refund your money if you don't succeed - which makes economic sense these days. Good luck!
