I'm also on my second round of clomid. The first cycle was fine until AF showed up and I had the WORST cramps of my life! Not sure if that's a side effect, but it sure seemed like it. This cycle I have had really bad hot flashes at night. That's about it.
Apparently, I am in the 1% of women that experience hives from Clomid. On 100 mg and get red, itchy hives that last for about 2.5 hours after taking the meds. Ick. Only 4 more days....
38, DH 39
TTC#1 w/ DH#2
Previous IF history in former life... Ex: MFI; Me: unexplained
Multiple cycles of IUI and donor sperm; moved to int'l adoption
May be cycling in November if we can get the insurance company to approve IVF for us. GRRRR.
So far the only side effect that I have had is being extremely tired half way through the day. I take my pills at about 6pm. I sleep about 8 hours a night. I am not sure why I want to crash at about 2pm.. must be the pills.
I went through 3 rounds of clomid. Some headaches but i was very moody and felt like i was going through early menopause with all of the flashes (cold and hot).
Hot flashes, weird headaches when I bend down, dull, cramping feeling (like menstrual cramps, but very light) from O time on until AF.
Crying at the drop of a hat, blaming dh for weird things.
This is my first time with Clomid -- took 50mg...waiting for next week for O to start (hopefully). I've had hotflashes, headaches and some moodiness.
Looking forward to O and praying like heck it works! Have been trying for 2.5 yrs prior to getting Clomid.

I'm on 50mg. CD5-9 and haven't really had any SE. I feel more hungry, jittery at times, thirsty, pinhcing and cramping while taking it.
Well, this month was my first round of Clomid 50mg CD 4-8. Side effects were way better than what I thought they would be.
I have had hot flashes, then cold ones too. Head aches that come and go. Some hurt worse and others are mild.
Moodiness... I seem to be a lot more emotional. I have been crying a lot lately over things I normally woudn't.
Oh and SOOOOOOOO tired. Not so much while taking it I seem to have gotten more tired since my last pill and I am on CD 12.
None of these symptoms were horrendous and they are completely worth going thru.
Good luck to you future Clomid mommies.
