AOA dear,
I could not get your question completely. Clomid, is a medicine which help in growing eggs so they grow big and ovulate(release) and meet with sperms (conception).
You take Clomid on 1st or 2nd day of periods for few days , than periods end, you can do intercouse any day you want but as we expect ovulation chances between day 10-24 maximum, so we stress on these days , don't miss them. Do intercourse on alternate days or daily.
You can do intercouse before and after these days. But daily intercourse little bit effect on sperm quality.
If you are really tired of these medicine, you can take break. If your all tests are normal, you can try natural, follow same, avail your ovulation days. Doctors normally try six cycles at a time to increase chances of fertility.
Make lots of pray for yourself and destress everyday.

Clomid is drug given for ovulation induction in those case where women having cycles without ovulation or where she is unable to conceive after one year of intercourse
for super ovulation (to develop more than one EGGs) . This treatment is followed by ULTRA SOUND tracking of follicle so that we can switch to other drug if Egg do not develop, otherwise if she develops Follicle of >16mm she will be guided for hCG inj and intercourse. Routinely Intercourse on 6th day of cycle is no problem. I would advise you to take Clomid under supervision of gynecologist . You are only 22 years so taking rest from Treatment is no problem
