I took it for 2 different cycles. First at 50mg, the second time at 100 mg. The first month was fine. The second month I was a little moody and had hot flashes like you wouldn’t believe. Both months caused me to ovulate, but neither month was successful for pregnancy. I got off of it because the second time, my period was only 2.5 days from a normal 5-6 day. They were afraid it thinned my lining too much.

I took it for the first time this cycle. I took it cycle day 3-7 after Provera for 10 days. I was on 100 mg and I ovulated on Saturday and I have my progesterone blood draw on Friday to confirm ovulation. My fingers are crossed that it works this cycle!

ohsomrsr15 :  I took it in preparation for an IUI cycle and I had really bad side effects – primarily mood swings. I took 50mg for 5 days and basically cried non-stop for the entire time lol. Happy cry, sad cry, frustrated cry. Literally any semi-strong emotion and I just started leaking from the face hahaha.  We also had MFI so when the IUI failed we moved on to IVF which gave us our little girl.

I took 100mg for two cycles and barely had any symptoms. The first month I had a slightly painful ovulation but nothing horrible. The 2nd month we conceived our son who is 17 months old! I would say that it caused me to ovulate later than my dr guessed (positive opk on day 20) so I would recommend using opks if you are doing a unmonitored cycle so you don’t miss your window.  Best of luck!

ohsomrsr15 :  we did 50 mg from CD 3-7 and got pregnant with our rainbow babe. I was very emotional, had some hot flashes, and headaches. Describing it now makes it sound terrible but I feel like it wasn’t bad at all and obviously it was worth it for us.
