From studies that have been conducted, I've been told there isn't an increased risk from Clomid itself. It's more coincidental. For example, I have PCOS. Having PCOS puts me at a greater rate of miscarriage. So, it wouldn't necessarily be the Clomid's fault.

We're all on Clomid because there's something wrong. IE no ovulation, no period, weak/bad eggs, etc. The reason we can't get pregnant is more of the cause of a miscarriage than the Clomid itself. That being said, things like birth defects and miscarriage that are attributed to drugs such as Clomid and Femara are generally due to the patient not using the drug properly...for example, using it after already having conceived. As long as you're being monitored and have a good doctor, I wouldn't worry too much about it. It's just another one of those risks we have to weigh against becoming parents.

They've never seen any cysts on my ultrasounds either. I have the slight discoloration in skin pigmentation and take Metformin due to my body not digesting sugars well, though I'm thankfully nowhere near being diabetic. I think our type of PCOS is more manageable than those who have cystic ovaries.
