Try higher doses: You could try higher doses of the Clomid (clomiphene) to allow an egg to grow, but should have an ultrasound during this treatment to ensure you have grown 1 egg and not too many!

Yes: The next step would be to increase the dose. Since you are getting close to the max doses, you should consider seeing a specialist if things dont work in the next month or two.
