How to use Clomid (clomiphene): Clomid (clomiphene) 150 mg (3 tabs) is a fairly high dose and usually taking all at once works great. We give extra Clomid (clomiphene) to try and get multiple eggs released. It also works best when combined with iui. Finally, IUI requires good timing, so ask about how to monitor to have sperm delivered by iui. Success rate based on female age but usually about 5-15%/cycle. Best wishes.
