How long were you ttc before starting clomid?

I have been ttc for 10 months now... regular sex, changed my diet, quit smoking, drink once in a while.... not pregnant yet.

I've heard about clomid and am curious as to how long people TTC before being prescribed it?

Also, my Mom's a twin, not sure it makes a difference... and we would be happy either way!

1 year the 1st attempt at clomid and I think 10 months the 2nd attempt. Both resulted in pregnancies but miscarried due to a progesterone deficiency. It was actually m/c #3 as my 1st pregnancy we ttc for 1 year but with no medical assistance. My 4th pregnancy was very spontaneous and no clomid, but it was immediately following #3 so my body still had some residual meds. All the very best to you!

We were TTC for 8 months when we discovered I had a medical condition that caused infertility. We were given the referral to a fertility specialist who told us our chances of conceiving naturally were about 6%, and carrying that pregnancy to term 50%. We had put the plan in to start Clomid. It would have been started 1 year after we had started TTC. As it was, we did naturally conceive, and we found out 3 days before I was to start Clomid. I would not just jump to Clomid as a first option without investigating why you haven't conceived. Some couples do take a year or more to conceive. Many doctors won't consider it infertility unless it's been longer than a year. However, it's worth checking out first. I'm also not sure they would start you on Clomid without any investigation either.
