Hey Lucy, welcome to clomid!!!

Yesm hot flushes are a very common side effct of clomid - they're weird aren't they!!  You sdould expect to ovulate anywhere between 5 and 9 days after you take the LAST tablet - so I think for you that should be around days 11 - 15 in your cycle - so make sure you get lots of  ^BMS^ in around that time!!!

Hopefully 1 month is all you need - fingers crossed for you!

Hi there

Just wanted to wish you lots of luck with the Clomid ^reiki^

As already mentioned, you should usually ovulate between 5-9 days after last pill but obviously we're all different so some women will ovulate earlier, some later. Clomid can muck around with our cycles so may shorten or lengthen them...or not change them at all...it's a wierd one ! Each month on Clomid can vary as well so one month you may get hot flushes & mood swings, the next month you might get no side effects. Fingers crossed you'll only need one month anyway ^reiki^ We were told to have plenty of ^hump^ between CD10 to CD17 to cover the fertile period...we were told every day, at the very least every other day !! ^afro^

You may find that you experience stronger ovulation pain too...I suffered from this before Clomid (ovulate naturally anyway) but the Clomid just exacerbates it for me, especially as I release 2 eggs each month on Clomid so the pain stronger, with lower back ache. But if you don't experience any side effects or ovulation pains, don't worry that it may not be working...we're all different so what some women get, others may not.

Also, if you take the Clomid pills at nighttime this helps ease the side effects as you'll sleep through most of them...I take mine at bedtime & it does really seem to help ^afro^

Are you being monitored on Clomid eg progesterone blood test after ovulation and/or monitoring scan(s) to see how many mature follicles and/or eggs released ? Progesterone blood test taken 7 (dpo) days past ovulation eg if 28 day cycle & ovulate CD14 (cycle day) then CD 21 prog test, if 35 day cycle then prog test on CD28 (does that make sense ??? ) Not all women are monitored though & rely on OPK's or basal temp charting (or nothing !) to determine when ovulation occurs....

Anyway, wish you loads of luck ^reiki^
Take care
Natasha

Hi Lucy and welcome  :)

I'm on cycle 7 of clomid and although have had side effects have put up with them as if they work I can take it!!  side effects can vary from month to month and from person to person so it won't always be the same.

Any idea of your cycle length?  if you are regular count back 14 days from when your AF would be due, this will give you a rough ovulation date but have BMS few days before in any case.  I have a longer cycle of upto 33 days so ov around CD18/19 but have jiggy jiggy from CD 10-20 if we can to cover it.

good luck  ^reiki^  ^reiki^  ^reiki^
