Is anyone taking/taken tamoxifen to induce ovulation?

I'm on my 4th cycle of clomid but having awful headaches in the first half of my cycle. Also, my tracking has shown that out of the 4 cycles, I've only definitely ovulated twice. At my fertility appt today, the doctor said he doesn't want to increase the clomid dose as I am ovulating on the current dose and any increase in dose would also increase side effects. So, we're going to try Tamoxifen on the next few cycles and if that doesn't get me pregnant, we're looking at gonadotropin injections. We didn't really discuss this much, other than it would involve lots of trips to the hospital for scans. I don't even know who does the injections, them or me?

Can anyone explain or give me anymore information?

I already have a son, conceived on the 3rd cycle of clomid, so naively thought it would just work this time too.

Thank you.
