Our objective was to evaluate whether ovulation induction with an increased clomiphene citrate dose of 150-250 mg/day for 5 days adversely affected pregnancy outcome. A retrospective chart review of 1910 medical records yielded 119 pregnancies with sufficient information regarding domiphene dose and pregnancy outcome. Of the 84 pregnancies that followed clomiphene doses of 50-100 mg/day, 32.1% ended in spontaneous abortion, 10.7% in ectopic gestation, 1.2% with congenital malformations, 2.4% in stillbirth and 53.6% in normal gestation. Of the 35 pregnancies that followed clomiphene doses of 150-250 mg/day, 34.3% ended in spontaneous abortion, 5.7% in ectopic gestation, 2.9% with congenital malformations, 2.9% in stillbirth and 54.3% in normal gestation. These differences were not statistically significant. These data suggest that a clomiphene dose of 150-250 mg/day does not appear to increase adverse pregnancy outcomes.
