Missed Clomid Pill


Dear Midwife,
I normally ovulate by myself regularly but started taking clomid pills for the first time last month to boost my chances. I was told to take it on Day 2 to Day 6 of my period.

Unfortunately, I forgot to take it on Day 4. However, I continued taking the rest of the pills. So instead of the last pill being on Day 6, my last pill was on Day 7.

I would like to know if this will affect my chances of conception?

Thank you.


I'm sorry, I can't say for sure, as each woman metabolizes such drugs in a slightly different way. I guess time will tell!!!
