Hello and welcome to eHealth forum!

No, you do not need to worry about waiting for 18 months. You can try now. Clomid should not be taken unless necessary as this has its own complications. Yes, your PCP or gynecologist can prescribe provided there is a need. Use an ovulation kit to time your ovulation correctly and try around this time. Please consult your gynecologist regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
