In brief: Sometimes
If you are infertile, then Clomid (clomiphene) can be used to cause coh (controlled ovarian hyperstimulation) and combined with IUI (usually) we may be able to boost your fertility.
Spontaneous pregnancy rates for infertile women is about 1-5%/month (normal = 20-25%). When we use clomid/iui then the rates are about 5-15%/month. To get higher rates then consider ivf (15-75% - by age).

Probably not. We can increase the low rate of infertile women to almost normal. But in most cases, more eggs/embryos increases multiples more than pregnancy rate. The clomid might get it done faster but the overall chances are not greater. Also, the multiple rate (twins) would be higher. I know this seems counterintuitive but this is what we see. Get pregnant the normal way for the healthiest preg

In brief: Clomid (clomiphene) & pregnancy
If a woman ovulates each month Clomid (clomiphene) will not increase her pregnancy rate, but it will slightly increase the chance of twins.
