My first round I had really bad hot flashes on 50 mg.  Now I am on 100 mg and I haven't had a single hot flash?!?! Crazy :)


Other than that, I didn't have any other symptoms.  One of my friends was on it and she said it made her into a raging B*&*@!!!  I think it probably is different for everyone.


Best of luck to you on Clomid...Oh and just FYI..From the research I have done, if you start taking the pills on CD 3 - 7, you can start using OPK's on CD 10.

Oooh, yay!  I'll be on CD 5 tomorrow, so that's perfect!  I want to start using OPK soon- hoping I see a smiley this time!! :)


I've been a raging B this week... my poor husband!  I did well for the first weeks on just Premarin and then when I added in Provera it was over! LOL


Side note: OMG the cramping I have been experiencing with this cycle is insane, does Provera typically amplify AF symptoms?!?

YES!!!!!  I had awful  cramps while on Provera!!!  Also, I was really really bloated!!  I was worried that maybe I had gained weight, but as soon as I stopped taking Provera and AF left the building...My stomach felt like normal again.

OMG- I have the same thing, I feel so bloated and swear that I look like I'm pregnant!!!  I was thinking this was just the residual effects from all the hormones... glad to hear that it goes away!!  I have been going nuts every time I get dressed because I feel like I have to wear shirts that cover the bloat!   I feel like a cow... LOL

Yay for Clomid...ha! Last cycle I took 50mg and had a couple hot flashes at night. This cycle on 100mg I had fewer but still was really warm at night. Another s/e that I notice is bloating around the few days before O. Off Clomid I would get bloated the day of O but medicated, it's a few days. Also my CM is non-existent on Clomid. Actually the few days right after AF I have much more creamy CM but getting close to O I have none...great. Other than that I haven't had many s/e's. Oh...last cycle I was really really thirsty the days I took the pills and I read that is common. Good luck and hopefully your s/e's will be minimal!

Good luck on the clomid Allie! My first round of 50mg clomid I was ok. When the dose was upped to 150mg, o had hot flashes like no other. I hope this goes well for you :)

This is just my first time on 50mg for 5 days, but I haven't noticed anything too bad... and I've been on the look out ;^)


Umm, but I'm sure if you asked my DH he would say I'm being a raging B too!!... I warned him and he still didn't back off, so he got the horns a couple times... hehe.
