We were pregnant on the second cycle of Clomid for my son. We had quality time every other day while on Clomid. :D Good luck.

My mom got pregnant with me, and a little more than a year later, my sister, on her first cycles on clomid for both of us.

I did 4 cycles of clomid and progressively ovulated later and later on it (first time was cycle day 16, then cycle day 31, then cycle day 39, etc.) My doctors wouldn't increase my dose beyond 50 mg even with monitoring because they were so worried about the multiples risk, so then I switched to femara and got pregnant on the second cycle of it.

Most doctors won't let you do more than 6 clomid cycles in a row, partly because the odds of getting pregnant with it after 6 failed cycles are pretty low, and also because there are cancer risks and it tends to thin your uterine lining.

Good luck!

My reproductive endo had me on Clomid and Metformin. I don't remember for certain, but I think it was the 4th or 5th cycle on Clomid - whichever it was, it was the last cycle he was going to have me try on Clomid. (I had PCOS before my first pregnancy.) Good luck!

My neighbor did clomid after 2 years of not getting pregnant and she got pregnant in 3 months. The Dr said usually people get pregnant by 6 months. You have a 5% chance of a multiple pregnancy too.

My OB is going to start me on Clomid once I get my period. How long did it take you ladies to get pregnant on Clomid, 50mg?
