I'm on my 3rd round of Clomid and really having a weird time of it. The first cycle I had basically no side effects. Just hot flashes and painful ovulation. The second cycle was way worse. I had every side effect in the book, terribly painful ovulation, and was convinced I was pregnant. I was even nauseated to the point of just lying around begging it to go away and I wasn't pregnant. The doctor said it was the Clomid and that he thought it was a good sign in a way that I felt so bad the second time. He thought it meant I was responding better and better each time. I've also hyperovulated each time and he said I definitely am at an increased risk for twins.
Well this cycle, cycle number 3, I felt bad before I even ovulated. Oh joy. When I ovulated the pain lasted about 48 hours this time and hurt on both sides not just on one. It hurt just to take steps when walking. It didn't feel like anything was wrong or anything but just enhanced ovulation pain. But has this happened to anyone before? Has anyone taken Clomid a few cycles and had the symptoms get worse with each cycle and has anyone noticed that the worse there symptoms were the better their ovulation or anything like that? I'm just not sure how much longer I can go through all of this. I can do three more cycles after this one but if it gets worse every time I don't know if I can handle it and I'm a little concerned about that. Ugh! I just hope this cycle is it and these concerns are made invalid by a BFP!
Thank you so much! I'm so glad to hear I'm not the only one. I hope it's a good sign and that it hurting extra bad might mean that I had extra good eggs or something and this month will be it. Seems like BFPs are popping up everywhere so I hope I get to be one of them!
