Read below: Clomid success rates and ovulation If you are having problems with ovulation, Clomid offers you an 80 percent chance of ovulating, usually within the first three months. Due to this ovulation boost, most women have a 50 percent chance of getting pregnant within the first six months after starting Clomid. Age Clomid may be helpful if you are over 35, but only if you still have an ample egg supply. If you are over 35 and your egg supply is low or dwindling, Clomid may not help you get pregnant. Weight If you are overweight or underweight, Clomid may be less likely to help you get pregnant. Before you try to get pregnant with Clomid, make efforts to get to a healthy weight. Ask your doctor about a safe weight-loss plan that includes a healthy diet and regular exercise.
