A 33-year-old female asked:

Does clomid (clomiphene) increase risk of miscarriages? and why do doctor's never mention this risk?

Always a risk: The risk of miscarriage will normally range from 10 to 25% whether or not you take Clomid (clomiphene). Risk may be increased because you would not be taking Clomid (clomiphene) if there wasn't a problem of some sort, and the risk of twins (with a possible increased risk of miscarriage) is higher with Clomid (clomiphene). Your "never mention" comment is inappropriate as well as incorrect.
