Clomid (clomiphene) and ovulation: Clomid (clomiphene) will help you ovulate - in fact, you may have multiple eggs released at one time. However, in your case, your Fertility issues may be due to Tubal scarring after Ligation and Reversal of the Tubal Ligation. Scarring of the tubes will hinder Sperm travel to the Egg, and the Fertilized Egg itself may have end up in the scarred Fallopian Tube instead of the Womb (an emergency ectopic).
