Clomid (clomiphene) for 3 cycles: The half life of Clomid (clomiphene) in the body is about 6 weeks. If you take Clomid (clomiphene) for 3 cycles continuously in the last cycle you may not respond. If you don't ovulate then your menses maybe abnormal! i suggest that if your not pregnant (assuming that you have confirmed ovulation at that dose) take a break after 2 cycles, and if you don't conceive spontaneously resume Clomid (clomiphene) again.
