Dear Kathy

The exact day of ovulation may vary depending on sensitivity of the individual to Clomid. In some patients ovulation may occur as early as day 10 whereas in others even though on Clomid ovulation may take up to 18 days and in some cases may not happen at all. Therefore despite using Clomid it is still necessary to utilise ovulation monitoring processes such as the urine testing kits or alternately ultrasound follicle tracking.
