You start having sex around the time of ovulation. Ideally, your doctor should monitor for ovulation, otherwise you can buy an ovulation kit and start checking from Day 10.

Hi Oduwole

I have just finished my 2nd course of Fertomid. My Doc told me take tablets on day 4 - 8 from first day of period, then on day 12 - 17 of the start of the period you must have intercourse.

Hope this helps
