Purposely Pregnant With Twins Multiples With Clomid

Whitley - May 14

In a fertile, 28-year-old woman who ovulates on her own and has regular 28-30 day cycles, would Clomid 100mg taken on days 3-7 increase her chances of conceiving twins more than 10%? What are the actual statistics for a woman in this situation? I'd appreciate all responses, especially those who have been in this situation. Not to be rude, but hold the sermons. I've scoured the net and have yet to find info about a case such as this. Thanks for your time! Whitley

I think it would increase your chances for multiples as well as cysts. I know that I've read it increases, but I would be careful with the 100mg & start with 50mg if you haven't taken it before. I took 50mg on cd3-7 because I wanted to increase the number of follicles & was told I now have multiple cysts on my ovaries. Ouch!

Thanks, Tosha. Did you get a BFP?

I am 30 yrs old and always had slightly irregular periods. The cycles could range from 30 days to 45 days... After a couple of months of trying to conceive with my husband, my period suddenly stopped altogether for a couple of months for no reason. I tested negative on pregnancy tests. So my doc prescribed 50mg of clomid that i took for one course on cd3-7 and i immediately became pregnant with twins! I never had any problems with cysts...my doc never mentioned it. She did say that my chances of having twins is about 10% with Clomid.

I'll let you know. I have an MD appt at the end of the month and will be 8 weeks (although they may not be able to tell from then). I am 26 and used unprescribed clomid hoping for the same thing (as with whitley, please hold the sermons as I've done my research). I only took 50 mg, but I did it days 2-6, which is supposed to increase your odds of producing more follicals. I have seen on another site a woman who became preg with triplets on 50 mg of unprescribed clomid, so be prepared for anything and just be ready to take responsibility for any and all consiquences. I have been having preg symptoms starting right after conception and tested + the night before af was due. Been very tired, no m/s, slight nausea, b___bs are HUGE, but tummy hasn't changed. I didn't have symptoms until over 8 wks with my first. So, I'll keep you updated. good luck to you, but please be sure to do your research (and it sounds as though you are, so kudos) and start off with the LOWEST dose (50mg) to reduce the odds of producing cysts, which I've heard can be VERY painful.

also, I have heard some places that the odds are more like between 20-25% for twins with clomid. SO, you never know. *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~Baby Dust*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

I am currently going through the same process. I am in the middle of doing all the research before my husband and I try anything. I am 26 years old, and haven't had a child yet. We are looking forward to whatever blessing we receive, but would enjoy multiples. I am polynesian, which I can't find statistics for as of yet, with multiple births in previous generations. Clomid, I am looking into no prescriptions (yes research yes). Let me know how it goes for you, feedback would be wonderful.

Hello, I am new to the forum. I read on another forum, that some of the NICU nurses are saying that clomid increases the chances of twins by 80%. I started clomid today 100mg and hoping for atleast one. lol and baby dust to all!!!


Erin - July 19

I became pregnant for the first time after 5 months on Clomid on the 150mg dose, 2 months ago but lost the baby. I have a left over dose of Clomid and am thinking about taking it in addition to my next round giving me 200mg for 6 days (days 2-7), I am also taking unprescribed Metformin for possible PCOS (my Dr is only an OBGYN and will not look into my sugar issues, but my insurance will not cover seeing a RE). I am nervous, but would LOVE twins. I am hoping that the additional Clomid will help the pregnancy stick AND maybe give us twins? I would love to hear what you all think about this!?!

how did you ladies get the clomid withought a script?


JoJo - July 28

I'm in the same boat with you Whitley - I asked my Dr. and he said nope. So I ordered mine online...but he did tell me the reason he said no is b/c it increases my chances to 80% if I ovulate naturally. He did mention that it doesn't help to take a higher dose and after 3 months it's not as effective as it was the first month. I've heard many stories and everyone's MD says something different...I only know what mine has told me. I ordered mine online, we are going to try in Sept. and hopefully conceive!!

I started my first round of clomid 100mg days 3-7 and I am now CD 17. I think I ovulated around CD 14-15. Much later than I usually ovulated. I had a tubal reversal and left with only one tube. I originally ordered clomid via website without a Rx however, the medication looked differently so I did not take it. I did research and the pill was much different color and shape. I am a RN and decided it was to risky. So please be careful ladies as ordering it from unreputable companies could be dangerous. I ovulate naturally and hoping to have atleast one baby at this point but would welcome more. I have read that multiples happen more often than not. lol and baby dust to all!!!!!!!!!!


to whitley - August 17

have you become pregnant yet while taking clomid 100 mg on days 3-7?


Sue - August 20

I have not conceived on the 100mg. I am now on 150mg and the side effects are worse. Baby Dust to All
