I am only 18 and recently had a miscarriage.. But I want a baby now... I was wondering how much it cost to get clomid and who to get it from?

Whoa there. Why do you need fertility drugs at 18 to have a baby? Also what's the rush? You're very young, and I don't understand your rush to have kids. Are you married? Can you provide a stable home life for a baby? Do you have a job? Who will care for the baby while you're working?
Are you going to college/technical school? If so, having a baby will make things more difficult for you. The same is true if you've got a great job and make plenty of money.
Raising a baby alone, or even with the support of family members, isn't in the best interest of a child. A child deserves a stable home with two parents who have an income that allows for proper care of a child. I'm not saying poor people shouldn't have kids - but you need to be able to buy basic things like diapers, bottles, clothing, etc. I suppose you could rely on charitable organizations, but the better option is to get a stable job, find a reliable partner/spouse and THEN have a baby.
I don't understand why you'd need clomid at 18. Are you infertile?
To answer your question: you need to go to an OBGYN, and hopefully that OBGYN will NOT give an 18 year old clomid, because it's irresponsible.
It's one thing to accidentally get pregnant young, then cope with the circumstances as best as you're able, but it's VERY irresponsible to CHOOSE to get pregnant while a teenager without a spouse/partner, steady job, etc.
I'm sorry, I don't mean to judge you, and I'm not saying you're a terrible person (you're not - I can't make that call anyway, I don't know you). I just really think you should consider your decision carefully, and choose wisely, not based on your emotions, but based on rational thought.
