Clomid side effects??

Sun Feb 08, 2009 4:37 pm

Ok so now I'm terrified to start Clomid b/c of all the side effects I've been reading about?! :|

It looks like the most common ones are hot flashes, headaches and painful ovulation... Can I get a poll of how many of you taking clomid actually had side effects? Also, anyone not have side effects at all?

I've been on weight watchers and lost 26lbs to date (in order to get preggo) and I noticed someone listed weight gain as a side effect as well???

I was really scared too but mine werent so bad,,,,the worst for me was the tiredness on day 1 and 2 but after that none other than slightly sore bbs and a few mood swings....Hope it goes well!

I took 100 mg of Clomid and didn't have any side effects at all.

Every month I get a different side effect. This last month was hot flashes. I was on 200mg. I would almost rather have had headaches. I would get so hot I would have to run outside. I would feel like taking my shirt off I was so hot. I never got blurred vision, but I did get dizzy when I was on 100mg. Headaches were every time but not as bad this last cycle. I hear it is all worth it when you get a BFP. and child birth is worse then hot flashes. So I can take it. Good luck to you!

This is my second month on Clomid and I've been taking it at night. I've noticed being more thirsty, more vivid dreams, and headaches. These aren't that bad and only last for a few days.

I did gain weight last month, but I was also on estrogen & progesterone, which my doctor said would also make me gain weight. It was more bloating than actual weight gain and has gone down this month.

I just got done taking my first round. I was only on 50mg. I have had occasional hot flashes, and mild headaches. I've actually lost weight. I just got put on estrogen though so that might change. I started reading all the symptoms too and freaked out, but I think a lot of it is in your head. Just go about your day to day activities and you may not even realize your on it.

I just got my coverline yesterday but I think FF is wrong cause I had awful O pain yesterday....much worse than the norm.....I norm O late or not at all that is why the doc put me on Clomid.....Other than that slight headaches a few spells of dizzyness and some mood swings...

I'm on my second cycle of Clomid, both 50mg. I had some minor side effects, but nothing that should scare you. I had mood swings and my O pains may have been a little more noticable, but nothing that was considered "painful". My bb's also get sore/tender around O time, which I have never experienced before.

I'v had mood swings, headaches, and hot flushes..

Wed Feb 25, 2009 4:26 pm

I don't really think I had any. I had maybe one hot flash, but that was about it. I was on 50 mg and it worked, I O'd on day 19.

Thu Feb 26, 2009 8:14 pm

I am on my first cycle of Clomid 50mg. I had numerous episodes of hot flashes, especially at night (I would wake up and have to get rid of blankets, sheets...) and lost of appetite (but I didn't really mind). No headaches, no pain.

Like Mayski my side effects vary month to month. The first month was worst. I must be getting used to it now! Generally I can summarise them as Hot flashes, dizziness, weird sensation at ovulation but nothing I couldn't live with. Oh and I had vertigo one month, that was really weird....I'm on 100mg and this is my fourth round.

Sun Mar 01, 2009 10:21 am

Headache and hotflashes.

Hi, first round of 50mg. I was tried day 1, then had a headache or two and been feeling very flushed. Nothing major. Just waiting to O.
