Hello! Also new! I have a 3 year old boy and a 1 1/2 year old girl. My husband and I talked to our dr about wanting twins. We want 4 kids, I am 34 and don´t want to have my fourth so late. My dr. has prescribed me clomid, I am suposed to take it the first day of my period for 5 days. We worry about having more than two. We are still weighting the pros and cons, so this forum sure helps. I have been reading that all of you are taking it from days three to seven, why is that? Does it depends on the lenght of the cycle?

Well, your doctor recommended Clomid because you need to release two eggs at the time of ovulation to increase your chances of twins. You see Clomid is similar to estrogen, so the brain will naturally think that Clomid is estrogen. When Clomid gets attached to the receptor, it stops estrogen from being attached to the receptor cells.  This fools the body that you don’t have enough estrogen and triggers it to release hormones that help nature and make the follicles mature.  This increases your chances of twins because the hormones produced helps your follicles to mature and increases estrogen levels. When more than one egg is released during ovulation and gets fertilized, it results in twins.  This leads to fraternal twins because they are two distinct eggs that are released for fertilization.  About taking Clomid between the third and the 7th day is recommended because this is the time the other egg will be maturing. So having the two eggs maturing at the same time increases your chances of twins.
