Age limit on clomid?

Do gynecologists get to use their on judgement when prescribing clomid? Like, for example, can they refuse to prescribe it because you're not married or because they think you're too young? Or do they prescribe it to anyone who has been trying for over a year to get pregnant?

Re: Age limit on clomid?

Doctors are not allowed to discriminate when it comes to prescribing medication. In other words, they can't refuse to give you ovulation meds because you are not married. If you have been trying for at least a year to get pregnant, then there is a chance a doc would prescribe some kind of ovulation medication to you. However, first be sure to see a doc to map out a plan. A plan might include having sex every other day between days 10-20 of your cycle (or longer) for 3 months. If nothing happens, then he/she might want to order an HSG (google it if you don't know what it is) of your fallopian tubes. From there, they may prescribe an ovulation drug. I would doubt that they would just prescribe it to you on a single visit.

Good luck!
