How Fast Does Clomid Typically Work
3-to-6 cycles: Many factors besides fertility medication go into achieving a succesful pregnancy.

My wife and I have finished 2 cycles of Clomid without success. Can the 3rd cycle of Clomid be successful if the other 2 rounds didn't work? I'm losing hope fast as we have unexplained infertility, which makes this situation worse.
Yes it can: Infertility can be very frustrating. Many times patients need a few rounds of Clomid (clomiphene) at increased doses to trigger ovulation and achieve success. Some doctors will add steroids to help it be more effective. Others will need to add intrauterine insemination or a bhcg injection to the clomid (clomiphene). Work with an experienced obgyn or reproductive endocrinologist to help guide you through the process. ...Read more

Depends: It works very well for women who don't ovulate, provided the ovaries still work well. If the brain communication is not working well or if the ovaries are closer to menopause then the medicine is not likely to cause ovulation. In young women with unexplained infertility Clomid (clomiphene) and IUI has been shown to be effective. So there is a difference between ovulation and pregnancy. ...Read more
Yes: Parlodel is a good treatment for hyperprolactinemia (too much prolactin hormone), and some patients conceive with it alone or combined with other fertility treatments. Clomid (clomiphene) can be used to induce ovulation (egg release) in many women who don't have regular cycles, or to cause 2-3 eggs to ovulate instead of one. About 10% success per month in under 35's; most pregnancies in the first 3-4 months. ...Read more

My urologue tel me to replace androgel 10 g by clomid (clomiphene) after used androgel 7 years. Do you think well work and is safe to do the change?
It depends on goals: The goal when infertility is the problem is to achieve a pregnancy, so Clomid (clomiphene) is used in the short term, to improve sperm count & T4. The goal when hypogonadism is the problem is to restore testosterone levels to normal for the long term. Clomiphene is not usually used long term because safety and effectiveness over years and decades have not been proven. Ask the Uro to explain the rationale. ...Read more
