Can Clomid increase the chances for success of IUI with donor sperm?

By Neus Ferrando Gilabert.
Last Update: 04/14/2014

Clomiphene citrate, better known as Clomid, is usually prescribed for fertility cycles as a first option, given that it is a low cost fertility drug. The success rates with Clomid are usually high, as it gives patients an 80% chance of ovulating within the first 3 months.

It is an ideal medicine in the following cases: if you are over 35, overweight or underweight. You should keep in mind that dosages have an impact on the success rates. Normally, women start with a 50 mg dosage. If it does not lead to ovulation, your doctor may increase it in subsequent cycles.
