I was just wondering if anyone else out there was taking Clomid. It is my first month on it and I am just wondering about side effects. Has it been successful for you? Any info would be great. :crossfingers:

I am not currently on Clomid. I took it three years ago when I got pregnant with my daughter-cycle #2 did the trick! I don't remember many side effects except very distinct ovulatory pain on both sides, much more than the usual. I was also very moody but I think that TTC induced mood swings in and of itself. The 50 mg dose worked, and I now have the 2 1/2 year old to prove it. I have been trying again, unsuccessfully, for the past 4 months and lost a pregnancy in June, so I envision more Clomid in the near future. I wish you the best of luck! ;)

Thanks for your input. I am in fact having that ovulatory pain today. It is much worse than normal, but it will be worth it I hope. Thanks for your reply and Good Luck and I hope you get pregnant soon. ;)

I was on Clomid for a month. It hurt. My twins are now 9! :crossfingers:

drvicky-

Thanks for the good wishes. I wanted to add a couple of things. First, don't be discouraged if the first cycle or two don't "make it happen." You may need a higher dose. Also, make sure that you're getting the generic clomiphene citrate. Much, much cheaper than the brand and just as effective. I conceived my daughter on 50 mg of clomiphene, cycle #2.

I was on Clomid for about 6 months. I tolerated the 50 mg fairly well, was so-so on the 100 mg but completely freaked out on the 150 mg.

I finally had to have 200 mg of Clomid with HMG injections, and lost my head for good measure. I had 10 follicles that cycle and concieved my liitle DD that month. (Thank God, I couldn't imagine doing it another cycle!). My DD is now 4 months old. I think it all depends on the doseage. I was extra-fierce PMS the entire cycles on doses 100 mg and above, but if you get pregnant, you forget that evil PMS on the double.
