HI missf1981 and welcome to :FZ:

Clomid helps you by increasing the number of eggs you make every month, so there is more chance of your partner's sperm to fertilise an egg simply cos there is more eggs about on both ovaries, rather than just one egg from one ovary, like it happens in natural cycles! Also they check that you are ovulating and monitor you so that you have intercourse at the right time, again to increase chances. Clomid, like all fertility drugs has side effects but as you are monitored it should be ok. This is normally the first step for fertility treatments, followed by IUI and then IVF/ICSI.

You must try not to compare your fertility issues with others as they are always different. You will not hear someone with exactly the same problem as you. Clomid will increase your personal chances, that is why they have prescribe it. There are success stories all over, just read around.
