I have taken two clomid challenge tests of which on day 10 my FSH levels were elevated. My question is what if I were to not take the Clomid at all and just go for the bloodwork on days 3 and 10. How would that affect my FSH level on day 10, if at all?

First of all, the jury is

First of all, the jury is still out as to whether FSH "under the influence" of Clomid is truly a better measure of your true FSH. And one dose of Clomid wouldn't raise your FSH to unreasonably high levels, though they may be slightly elevated. You can always ask for an unmedicated FSH blood test next month to see for yourself, though I am surprised you didn't do that before.

I don't often hear of women doing more than one clomid challenge tests. At $500 a pop, make sure you know why you need multiple tests.
Good luck
