It's my first month on clomid, CDs 5-9. I'm on CD18 and I haven't O'd yet (I'm a little bummed, but not all that phased by it. Without clomid my cycles range anywhere from 45-66+ days. So this is better.. assuming I do eventually O...!)
Side effects during CDs 5-9: extreme mood swings, hot flashes, and crying easily. I also felt constant ovary sensations during those days, like low-grade cramps. Felt like my ovaries were working overtime. Overall, nothing so unbearable that it isn't totally worth it if I can get pregnant! :D
Since CD 9, I really haven't felt anything other than a few ovary twinges now and then. Moodiness has gotten way better. Oh and the other thing I've noticed is that I have very little CM (even though I'm taking Mucinex).
Love this board.. it's so great to read everyone's experiences!
My Clomid side effects are mood swings, o-pain(though I am not complaining...glad to know it is working), hot flashes, & REALLY BAD headaches. I was actually treated at hospital 2 times the beginning of this month with terrile migraines. Though this could be because I am prone to headaches and typically get 1-2 bad migraines per year even without Clomid. I am just dreading the thought of trying Clomid again next month. Hopefully I won't have to...Come on BFP :neonflower:
I am on my first cycle of clomid, CD 3-7, and I had a "fuzzy" feeling around my eyes...almost like dizzyness, but not quite that bad. Also, my bbs have been sore since I started the clomid...it hasn't really gone away at all and I am on CD 11 now.
Eeeek! Side effects!
Hello everyone! I am new on here and immediately was drawn to this thread!! I am on my third cycle of clomid 50mg days 5-9. Today is CD7 and I experienced an awful bout of nausea. I had to sleep off my nausea in order to get rid of it!!! I also get sensitive nipples from the day of ovulation and all throughout my luteal phase. I am so glad that I am not alone in this!
moody, Moody, MOODY. Period.
And my endometrial lining is only 3mm now. Not good.
Hot flahes, irritated, moody, crying, headaches, No CM(I used PreSeed to fix this).. I think that is it.
I've been hotter than usual, so some hot flashes. A bit moody--less patient really, and really nausated last night.
This is my last/9th month on Clomid (I've lost count of what round this was), hopefully it worked (I'm in the 2ww) doubt it though. My symptoms have always been the same, hot flashes, hot all the time, sweating like crazy, heartburn, nausea at night and I have never heard of it causing O pains...weird, I've never experienced that one. My worst symptom is gaining so much weight. From everything I have read, you either gain a ton of weight or none at all. Apparently I'm the lucky one.
This is my 6th medicated cycle. I have been more moody that normal, headaches (the dull achy ones), and mild cramping leading up to O. They really haven't been bad, although DH would disagree about the moodiness. I take prometrium though, and that kicks my tail every time. I get so dizzy the first hour after I take it.
well i just finished my first round on clomid, and these are the things that i notice.
temperature shifting, really cold and then really hot
and i am just discovering now......
Horrible cramps during AF...
