1st cycle of clomid didn't work?

i was put on clomid last month and no pregnancy resulted from usage. I started a second cycle of clomid this month on the 7th. I have to wait until the 28th to see if a pregnancy result.

My question is how long does it usually take to get pregnant on clomid? how long are u allowed to take medicine? what happend if you not getting pregnant on it, what are your next options?

    If the Clomid doesn't work, the next step will probably be IUI.

    Clomid makes you ovulate. It doesn't make you get pregnant. The odds of pregnancy on clomid are similar to those of any other 'actively trying' couple -- about 20-25% per cycle.

    Usually, if the couple tries 5-6 ovulatory cycles without pregnancy, the doctor will do more tests and/or move on to something else.
