Thanks for posting your query.

If you take Mebendazole today and start taking clomiphene (ccq) from tomorrow, it is not likely to show any interactions and is not going to affect your fertility.
You can safely take a single dose of Mebendazole today.
Be careful not to take any repeat dose until your next periods.
Do follow your doctor's directions regarding the dosage schedule of Clomiphene and go for regular follow ups.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.

I m going to have ccq from 2nd day of period till 6th day. My dr advised to have intercourse between 12 - 16 days. Will it is enough to have intercourse daily once in these days? Whether i have to extend these days? My periods are regular with 30 days (2 days before it or 2 days later) cycle for 3 days..I m 26 yrs old and i m very eager to have a child. So pls give me some ideas for it and answer my queries. Thank you.

Thanks for writing again.

The treatment advised to you is correct . You can have a daily intercourse on your likely days of ovulation- from day 9 to 16.

Once daily intercourse is sufficient to conceive.

Some simple measures which will help include-
1)Have regular intercourse without any stress.
2)Start taking Folic acid once a day. It prevents any neural defect in foetus.
3)While having intercourse keep a pillow under hips for better penetration.
4)Avoid getting up immediately after intercourse.
5)Avoid stress and have healthy nutritious diet and drink lots of water.

Hope my answer is helpful. Write back if you have further queries.
