Fertility and Clomid

Patient

Q: I started taking 100mg clomid but I stopped after the 3rd day. Can I still get pregnant?

Doctor

A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query.

Quite a rare question, This is very uncommon that someone takes Clomid only for 3 days and waits for the results.
Anyways, you have taken 100 mg; and the normal dosage prescribed is 50 mg per day for 5 days, it is likely that you still may ovulate and have pregnancy.

But, take care to take this for 5 days in next cycles.

About 70 per cent of women will ovulate in response to a fairly low dose (25-50) of clomifene citrate. Of those who ovulate, about 40 percent will become pregnant.
Other factors that can affect the pregnancy rate include:
the time in your cycle that you have sex
your age and weight
the count, shape, speed and motility (ability to move) of your partner's sperm

Well, on a safe side consult your Gynecologist.
Hope this helps.
