I'm in the north east. I've been trying over a year, we've went privately and had a pelvic scan, hycosy and semen analysis. All okay but still nothing. Don't fancy paying a few more hundred pound for clomid. Will they prescripe me it to save me money or months waiting to be referred to a Nhs Fertility clinic?

I can only speak from my experience, which is no. I'd be surprised TBH as you should be monitored with scans etc while you're taking it. Do you ovulate ok? If you do you might find they won't give it to you anyway. If you get a GP referral to gynae consultant that might work?

My 21 levels are 29 and then the second lot was 31. So ovulating but just borderline..been looking up to go private. It's like £25 for the clomid but £125 a scan. What if I don't want the scans? X

You need to have the scans!!! It's really important. With Clomid you can produce multiple eggs per cycle, I managed 6 on my one and only month of Clomid (I responded too well, ironically) - if all 6 eggs ovulate and then fertilise you're potentially looking at sextuplets. Which carries massive risks for you. I very much doubt they will give you Clomid if you refuse the scans.

Hi, my GP prescribed me 50mg of clomide, all she would give me was 21 day bloods, i decided to go private have 1 scan a month to check progression

Mine couldn't. That was about 5 yrs ago. He said at the time that GPs used to be able to, but not anymore. It may have changed again though!

Ideally it should be done through a fertility clinic as you will need monitoring scans.
