 3  No ovulation Side effects for me was facial hair years later. Possible problems with ovaries now 25 years later. Clomid is good for achieving pregnancy, however, now (my twin sons are 24)...I believe that the medical challenges they have undergone may be due to taking Clomid. One son had Tourette's growing up and now is living with Schizophrenia. My other son battled APL Leukemia at age 17 and thank God is doing well now. Both of these have to deal with chromosomal abnormalities. I just wanted to post this simply to caution others to research it more before trying. F 50 7 months

 1  Fertility Issues I experienced HORRIBLE anxiety. I was prone to anxiety attacks before but could almost always manage them on my own fine. I started taking Clomid about 2 weeks ago and my anxiety has been through the roof. 4 and 5 panic attacks a day, so tired, all I want to do it cry. Has made trying to live my normal life impossible for the last two weeks. F 24 5 days

 3  Trying to get pregnant Extremely bloated and the worst hot flashes! I am also cramping so bad that I can hardly walk. I feel as though my cervix is going to fall out. I went to the dr on the 18 day of my cycle and she said that I have three eggs. This was my first cycle on clomid. I have always had regular periods and got pregnant when I was younger but got an abortion. Never took birth control. My Dr recommended clomid for me because my husband has very low sperm count.

 1  for better IUI timing to get preg First time= hot flushes, irritable, very heavy period with more bleeding days and lots of heavey clots second time= strong stomach craming, thinning of endometrium lining, I used it to help with the timing of IUI procedure, as i have to travel interstate for the procedure. Trying to develop the right amount and size of follicles and then have an Ovidrel trigger to stimulate ovulation. I am currently on my second consecutive month of clomid and hoping i have made the right decision to take it. The cramping does not feel normal or healthy. F 34 5 days

 2  No ovulation, TTC Hot flashes, major weight gain (2-3 lbs per cycle), bloated belly, distended lower belly, moody Clomid worked for us in that I did ovulate, but we didn't conceive, even with 2 iui's - ttc our first for 18 months now. It was torture taking it. I stopped after 3 months, then got put back on it for 1 month - begged my dr not to put me on it. We refuse to use it anymore b/c it depressed me, made me gain a ton of weight, and made my belly pooch out. We're just ttc naturally now and if it was meant to be, it will be. F 28 4 months

 3  Unknown infertility I did have great ovulation on clomid, but that is the only positive. I had some mild hot flashes, some mood swings, and at times became pretty emotional. The worst part about clomid for me, has been the dizzy spells. They are so bad I am sometimes afraid to drive. I have decided to take a break from clomid because of the severity of this symptom.

 3  PCOS First round of 50 mg had my eyes very sensitive to light, hot flashes, nauseated and mood swings. I did not ovulate that round. Bumped up to 100 mg and ovulated on day 13 but no pregnancy. Currently still on 100 mg, CD 17 and still no ovulation. I chart my temps every morning but nothing has picked up yet. However, I don't rely heavily on my temps as there can be so many variables while doing so. The past few days I've been crampy but nothing I can't handle. I have my day 21 progesterone levels done this coming week so we'll find out if it was just my chart F 33 3 months

 5  PCOS Mood swings, depression and anxiety. . . But let's face it, anyone that NEEDS Clomd has been TTC for sometime and who doesn't feel this way whilst dealing with infertility?! I got pregnant on my 1st round of 50mg. We are now TTC #2 and have taken 1 round 50mg and I don't think it has worked this cycle. . . But bring on the rest. Worth every side effect. Good luck to all!

 2  Anovulation Holy Jesus. The side effects are horrible; simply put, personally DEBILITATING. If you're sensitive to medications or anything you put into your body, for that matter, Clomid may not be the right fertility drug for you. I would've appreciated if my OB/GYN told me just how much weight gain is possible on this medication. When I began my 1st cycle of Clomid, I was 119 lbs and a size 2. I'm 5'2"; I'm short and I know it. I've embraced it over the years with short strides in long-distance running. I've been a marathoner and half-marathoner since age 17. I'm now 36. As for the side effects, the hot flashes come and go and are deal-able, but the tremendous weight gain, abdominal bloating and mood-swings are not welcome, at all. The first month I took 50 mg Clomid on days 3-7, I experienced extreme hot-flashes, abdominal bloating that made me appear as if I were 5-6 months pregnant although I certainly was not, bizarre mood-swings that had me both crying and laughing within the same It's 3 days before I am due for my period. THAT, or the grief of experiencing 2 rounds of Clomid has made it possible that I could indeed be pregnant. I'll be sure to post if I get any positive news. Thanks to all the women who have posted here. It certainly helps reading about your experiences and makes me feel like I'm not entirely alone in this journey. F 36 2 months

 2  Infertility None I am 33 years of age and Clomid didn't live up to its reputation. My doctor put me on provera, to re-start my menstrual cycle after a cycle was skipped after a miscarriage, and then put me on Clomid. I ovulated late and have subsequently NOT become pregnant. This is so disturbing as my doctor doesn't seem to think that there is a problem. F 33 5 days

 5  TTC #1 over 35; anovulatory Weight gain, extreme fatigue and drowsiness, hot flashes in the morning (not too bad), swollen breasts, increased appetite. This is an update. After 2 rounds of clomid; the 1st round at 100 mg for 5 days and then the 2nd round at 150mg for 5 days, I am now pregnant on the cycle that I did not take clomid. This is the 3rd round and I decided to take a break from the clomid. I believe the clomid was still in my system. It worked. We are now pregnant. We also used opk sticks, which helps pinpoint ovulation. I believe clomid is safe, but not to be used longterm, no more than 6 cycles and up to 250 mg. You want to use the least effective dosage possible. F 38 5 days

 3  to obtain a pregnancy Severe Rage. Patients need to be more informed of this dangerous side effect. I didn't know what was happening to me. I am normally a gentle calm person but on clomid I lost my mind and in a fit of rage busted all the Windows out of my house and then cried for 3 hrs. Never again will I take this medicine and I will warn others of the dangers. F 30 6 days

 5  Low ovulation No side effects noticed We conceived our daughter at age 33 on 3 rounds of Clomid after TTC for 6 months, then our son at age 35 on 2 rounds of Clomid and we're now trying for our 3rd baby at age 40 and we are hoping for similar success! We love Clomid and it's helped us realize our dream of becoming a family with such a simple process. My cycles have always been irregular.

 3  Stimulate Ovulation/Pregnancy Brief hot flashes after 2nd/3rd pill on first and second rounds of clomid. Moodiness, increased irritability. Nothing unbearable. I was prescribed Clomid 50 mg on cycle days 5-9. I did my first cycle last month and ovulated on day 19 (a little late) so I know it worked - however we did not get pregnant. My husband and I were both sick with chronic sinus infections and on other medicines too that month. Now I'm on round 2 of Clomid 50 mg, cycle days 5-9. Just finished my last dose tonight so now on to tracking my ovulation and praying it works this time! F 26 5 days

 3  boost ovulation & get pregnant I've experienced hot flashes (at night times only immediately after taking the pill), waves of stabbing pains in the lower stomach (lasted 2 days), tiredness, and mood swings (crying spells and easily irritated). It was my first round on Clomid recently and didn't get pregnant. My progesterone level on Day 21 was 31.30 which means I ovulated. I do not know why I didn't get pregnant, but it was a stressful month for me and my husband (due to a death in family) so, maybe next month will work better for us! My sister took 50mg the first month and didn't get pregnant.. so she rushed and increased her dosage to 100mg during the second month and got pregnant with twins! I am going to be patient as much as possible because I definitely don't want to get twins after seeing what my sister had to deal with! Ha. I'm sticking with 50mg next month to see if it works successfully or not. If not, I'll ask my doctor to increase the dosage to 100mg. *crossing my fingers* F 28 5 days

 3  To ovulate I started on 100 mg last month. My side effects seemed to occur about a week after I completed my dosage. I had hot flashes and some moodiness but nothing too extreme. The Clomid did what it was created to do. It helped me ovulate. My ovulation was painful and my progesterone when tested CD20 was at a 40! It seemed promising but AF came 11/21. Today I started 150mg. I am hoping I will have the same luck this month,(ovulation and minimum side effects) but with success. 43 2 months
