After having my MC in Jan. and going to the doctor after 2 years of TTC, my doctor figured out I wasn’t ovulating and I’m starting Clomid next cycle. What has your experiences been on clomid and how has it done for you?

I took it days 5-9. I didn’t respond to 50, but responded to 100. But it also thinned my lining. No emotional or physical side effects. It didnt work for me either, but I got some other major issues apparently.

I tried it for 2 cycles but dh has some issues so my doctor decided IUI was probably going to be best for us. I don’t remember anything horrible while taking it. Good luck!

I had bad hot flashes at night from it but it wasn’t unbearable. I was on clomid 100mg plus a few shots of gonal-f. I ovulated both times I took it but didn’t get pregnant. Good luck!

I took it a few cycles ago with an Ovidrel trigger. I didn’t really have any symptoms while on it – I did take it right before bed so that may have helped. However during the second week of my TWW I was having hot flashes. During my monitoring appointment before IUI the doctor mentioned that my lining was thinner than they liked, but it was too late to do anything about it. If I realized how common this was I may have tried harder to eat foods during the first half of the cycle that are supposed to be good for your lining. Luckily, I only had to do Clomid once before I was allowed to move on to an injectible cycle.

I took Clomid 3 times i think, my body never responded to it, doc thinks its actually rejected it. Clomid through me for a loop. I had horrid modd swings and was plainly a b**** on it. Night sweats and just felt like crap on it.
But everyone responds to it different. We tried for 2 years with pill medication but then moved to IUI.

I had success with clomid. Not a lot of symptoms (I think I had hot flashes once) and got pregnant twice, both on the first round.

I’m in the TWW of my first clomid cycle, so I can’t say yet if it “worked” or not. My Dr isn’t monitoring me this cycle, as I ovulate naturally. I took Clomid 50mg days 5-9 to give better egg quality. We are unexplained.
The only side effect I had was a few night sweats, which lasted about 2 days after I took my last dose. I took mine at night to lessen any effects it may have on me during the day. No mood swings or anything.

Clomid worked for me twice! With my Dear Daughter it took only one round of 50mg days 5-9. I’m pregnant with my second now, and this time we did two rounds of 50mg and I didn’t O. Third round we upped to 100mg and I O’d late (CD25) but it worked! I also temped, which helped me feel more informed, and how I knew if I had O’d or not. I would recommend taking it before bed as someone else suggested, one round I took it in the morning (too eager) and felt nauseated each day all day. I also experienced intense mood swings – from angry and irritable to weepy and emotional. Good luck, hope it works for you!

*+6Thanks for the responses! I hope it goes well. I was put on provera last cycle to bring on this cycle because of no ovulation so on days 5-9 I’m supposed to take 50 MG of clomid. I have heard to take it at night because of symptoms.

My sister took it for the first time last month, it didn’t work for her unfortunately, the u/s showed some follicles but she didn’t ovulate, her dr is going to bump her up to 100mg from 50mg this month. She was worried of the side affects (heard it can make you “crazy”) but she didn’t have any issues with mood swings or anything like that, but it did give her terrible headaches while taking it and even a few days after she was done taking it.

MrsSWB: I did four cycles of Clomid. It made me ovulate but I did not get pregnant 😕
I didn’t really experience any symptoms
