Clomid side effects and period length

Feel kinda bad that the last 5 posts are mine-- sorry if I have too many questions!

For those of you who've used clomid, did you notice a lot of side effects? I *think* I'm having hot flashes (my husband is bundled up, my cats are shivering, I have all the windows open and am wearing next to nothing) and I've had a little disorientation (both of which were listed on the insert, so not worried). I was a little concerned the first day I took it because I had ridiculously painful cramping/ovarian pain. I am on my period, so that's not a huge surprise, but usually most of my bad cramps come before my period. I had a lot of pain on one side all morning the first day (more near my ovaries than menstrual-feeling cramps) and then the same pain on the other side all that afternoon. Today no pain. The insert said to see your doctor for pelvic pain, but I didn't think this warranted calling my doctor. I just decided to hope that it's a sign that my ovaries might be noticing the meds at least a little.

Has anyone seen a change in their period while on clomid? I don't have a period too often, so I don't remember too well, but my period has gotten a lot heavier since I started the clomid. that might just be the normal pattern of my period, but it seemed odd. I was actually expecting it to start slowing down that day (I guess the pain heavier flow might explain the pain though, or vice versa).

One last thing-- so I started the clomid on day 5, as instructed. Is there any concern about the fact that I have long periods (7-10 days; currently wrapping up day six with no end in sight (my flow normally lightens the last few days).

This month was the second month of me being on Clomid. I did get hot flashes but I got them after I was done with the Clomid during the week I was to ovulate. Not sure what was the cause of it though.

I would definitely call and ask your doctor about this. I'm not saying there's something wrong but I don't know why you could be experiencing these changes. I'd hate for you to get worried over nothing OR not worrying enough if there's a problem.

Hi,i wonder why people still don't believe that roots and herbs are very essential and fruitful in different aspect,especially when you can't conceive and bear children. I am a living witness because i tried all i could to be pregnant but all to no avail,until i contacted Dr Natasha ,who gave me some roots and herbs and told me how to use it. I missed my menstrual flow within a short period of taking it,and the doctor confirmed that i am pregnant. I am very glad to tell the world that i am a mother of a bouncing baby boy,contact her now dont say because she is a lady she canthelp you no she can really help you contact her now for your own testimony Via : pregnancyherbs@gmail.com pregnancyherbs@gmail.com

I had horrible hormoney things from the first day I took Clomid- I may have had hot flashes, but I definitely turned into a raging PMS-monster... almost as soon as I took the first pill. And I do think my next period was particularly heavy, but I also had a chemical pregnancy soon after, so maybe I'm mixing them up. It's been a while ;)

I'm on my fourth cycle of clomid now: 150 mg. The hot flashes were horrible and I was in a general state of hot for weeks afterwards! Also, after I started taking the clomid, I had very random cramping often after my period was over, even.

My side effects have intensified with each round. My main complaints are constant headache, minor confusion, and HOT FLASHES!! OMG! One time I actually had to change my sheets in the middle of the night because they were drenched. Ive also had some moodiness during this last round, but not with the others. I have a physical anomaly, so the cramping is fairly normal for me, although its definitely a little worse on Clomid. Its been exceptionally worse this round, and we did discover a new cyst on the ovary thats giving me all the trouble. I dont know how coincidental that really is, but thats been my experience. I normally have periods every other month, but Clomid brings me a perfectly average 28-32 day cycles. It even seems to have helped my clotting. Its going to be hard returning to my old routine once Im done. Hope this helps! *Baby Dust*

ALSO! Ive noticed that the symptoms linger for several weeks after each use, so dont freak out when 6 weeks after your last pill youre still getting the headaches or hot flashes. I read up on the med info, and this is normal.

thanks to Priest babaka for his pregnancy spell that help
i am so so excited to share this testimony with everyone. i never really believed in spell casting nor magic whatsoever. i was so ignorant of the fact that one can really get pregnant by any means of spell casting. i am from Philippines, i am happily married with a new born baby(boy). i am 34 years old. i got married to my husband 7yrs ago and since then we have been battling with a problem of getting an issue. I was so frustrated as my husband threatened me of getting a new wife and his family members also threatened that i will be thrown out of the house. i looked for means everywhere but ought to no avail. to cut the long story short i contacted Priest Babaka the spell caster and today i am proud to say that i am a mother with the help of Priest Babaka. contact him now and get yours solved via his Email: babaka.wolf@gmail.com
