I am 35 yo and have been trying to get pregnant for 2 years. The ovulation predictor kit indicates that I ovulate every month, and bloodwork showed normal hormone levels. So what is the advantage of prescribing Clomid, if I am already ovulating? Thanks!

Clomid may be able to help in

Clomid may be able to help in maturing the eggs that are released. Some doctors feel Clomid somehow makes eggs better and thus improves the chance of fertilization. There is a 10% or so chance having multiples on Clomid, but it may be higher if you already ovulate.
Adding Clomid won’t hurt, but at 35, don’t stay on Clomid longer than a few months, as time is of the essence. Make sure you get a hormone screen done to get a full picture of what’s happening with your body.
