: I ovulate right on schedule every month, my cycle is 28 days literally to the hour and hormones (everything, including Day-3s) are all well within normal range, is there any benefit to trying Clomid for three cycles? I thought it was best used for annovulatory cases and those where ovulation is irregular. Can you explain why Clomid would be recommended in my case - I am just shy of my 39th birthday and don't want to spend a whole lot of time on conservative approaches unless there is very good reason. Thank you so much for your time and response!!

You are right. Clomid is most often used in women who do not ovulate. However, it is also often given to induce multiple follicular development even in women, like yourself, who ovulate regularly. Many REs will use clomid first as it is easier to administer and monitor, but it is associated with lower success than the more aggressive methods including gonadotropins with insemination or IVF. what one should do is up to you and your RE. If you are unsure of your gameplan see your RE to discuss this further.
