Thank you for your query.
It is never safe to take Clomiphene on your own as self medication.
You need to consult an infertility specialist.
Firstly, clomiphene should be combined with follicular monitoring always, as there are various side effects of clomiphene.
yes, twin conception is a risk ( 8 - 10 % ) if you conceive on clomiphene therapy.
MOreveor, after 3 C sections, the fourth one would definitely be risky for you.
ANd i fail to see where is the guarantee that you would have a boy child only.
Take care.
