In brief: Timing

Depending on your particular menstrual pattern, the timing of the Clomid (clomiphene) would help you achieve or add/increase the likelihood of ovulation.
Ovulation generally occurs around mid-cycle for women with the traditional 28-day cycle.

In brief: None

Studies in the 80s compared pregnancy rates on Clomiphene starting on cycle days 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 and they were basically identical.
Specialists are somewhat more likely than general obs to start on day 3, but outcomes are no different.
