Hi...well, the first time my husband and I tried Clomid it worked. But at 9 1/2 weeks, I had a miscarriage. Doc didn't want me to wait and try again right away. I did 3 cycles of Clomid and Ovadril. 1st time, only one follicle (100mg), 2nd time, only 2 (100mg). The last time, Doc upped my dosage to 150mg. and I had three. All good in size. But the last time didn't work either. Very depressing I must say. I was about to start my 4th cycle with Clomid but the doctor told me that I wasn't getting any younger and for me to move onto an injectable drug called Follistim. I am on day 3 today. I don’t like needles and I cry every time they take blood from me…so you can imagine what I mess I am when I have to do the shot in my stomach…and this is only day 3. I think I have 4 more days of this.
Sorry…didn’t mean to get off the subject. But anyways, I didn’t really have any side effects except for weight gain. I think I gained 10 lbs each cycle of being on Clomid. I didn’t really notice any moodiness – buy my husband might disagree. And the other thing I did notice was that I had a slight constant pain on my right side. I wish you all the luck!
