Clomid and weight gain, anyone else????

Postby tiffanynp » Wed Dec 15, 2010 9:16 am

Okay, so I have been on Clomid for two months and have gained almost 5 pounds in two months..not normal for me. I know it is holiday season, but still that is alot. It seems to make my appetite ravenous.
Anyone else experience this???

I've actually lost a few pounds, but I started Metformin at the same time I did my second cycle of Clomid and I think the stomach aches and general icky feeling the Met gives me has made me not want to eat. It kind of sucks because now I'm underweight and I know that can hurt your pg chances!

I think I've probably gained 1-2 pounds over the 4 months, but it definitely is in certain places. Holy love handles!! How can I have that and a flat stomach? Spread out, fat!
