Usually : It is because there is something wrong the cells not dividing properly and the fetus never really develops. It can be more common with Clomid (clomiphene) very early. Talk to your dr.

Chemical pregnancy : What you had is called a chemical pregnancy, which is a very early miscarriage. Miscarriages can happen on Clomid (clomiphene) for several reasons including a genetically abnormal fetus and the adverse affects of Clomid (clomiphene) on the uterine lining. It is time to think about moving on to fertility injections. If you see a specialist, your dr can discuss this. If not, find a specialist.

Many reasons: This may be considered recurrent pregnancy loss by some. At least initial evaluation needs to be preformed. Make sure that the uterine cavity is normal. Some people may actually look at clotting factors and make sure that your prolactin and TSH levels are normal.
