Hi Casper,

Welcome to FF! ;D

I'm afraid I don't have any personal experience with Clomid, but know there are plenty on here that do. So please check in and you will be sure to have some response to your concerns.

Please feel free to post any questions/worries you may be having, there is a wealth of experience on here and a wonderful bunch of girls (and boys) that can help you through this!

All the very best,

love,

Sue :-* :-*

Hi Casper,

I also have no experience of Clomid - sorry :( , but we do have quite a few girls at the moment who are using Clomid, hopefully one of them will be able to help with your question.

We have heard of quite a few success stories now, so i have my fingers crossed for you that it has worked.

Welcome to the site ;D and hope to see a ^thumbsup^ that it has worked.

Take care

Mel

Hello Casper1
As Sue and Mel have said there are quiet a few of us that are on or have been on Clomid, so hopefully we can help you with any queries. I was on clomid for quiet a while, unfortunately didn't work for me, but that doesn't mean to say it won't work for you ;D ;D ;D.
When I was on it, my cycle went from a regular 28 days up to 35 and I was told that this was to be expected on Clomid. Cramps could be a good sign though, so fingers crossed for you. Let us know how you get on. There are quiet a few girls on the "Clomid Anyone" thread, so you might like to post on there with us.
Good Luck
Karen ;)

good luck to you.

Hi Casper, Hi Jill (and anyone else new here that I've missed since I last posted).

I have been on clomid 50mg for about 7 months. I've got one lot left to take then I move on to something scarier!

In the main, my cycles were actually slightly shorter on clomid. Previously I'd be between 29 and 35 days and on the tablets I'm 28 to 30 days. Although I had a month off and I had a really long cycle then.
However I was told by doctor that it could affect the length of your cycle so it seems to be a common side effect of the drug.

Haven't really noticed an increase in cramping either, but then I get bad cramping anyway (probably because I've had endo). I have noticed that about midcycle I get tenderness and bloating in my tummy.

Other joyful side effects to look out for are headaches, hot flushes, tender breasts and extreme moodiness. PMT doesn't hold a candle to what you get on Clomid. I had to buy my husband a suit of armour for Christmas this year ! ;) :eek: ::)

Hi, I am on Clomid also and have just taken my third lot. I am starting to feel a little discouraged, although from what I read, there are people who have been on it a lot longer than that, so I really should stop feeling sorry for myself!

I am just tryin to get on with things and not think about it every minute of the day, as hard as that is.

Fingers crossed!!

hi everyone

I have finished my first month of clomid. We are keeping our fingers crossed.

I do not know whether it wil work or not but anything is worth a go in the firt instance.

I appear to be suffering from lower abdo pain and sore nipples- but I gather this is normal!

Keeping my fingers crossed for you all

love

Jeanette ::)

Hi there

I'm just about to start my 5th cycle of 50mg clomid (tomorrow - cd2)...I actually ovulate naturally but am on it too "boost".

Unfortunately cramps are pretty common side effect of clomid...but AF, pg & clomid side effects are all very similar so difficult to know what's happening.

Wishing you lots of luck
Take care
Natasha ^reiki^

hiya Wendy and welcome to FF.  It looks like you have "replied" to an old posting from 2002.  If you want to post a new question, click on "new topic".  This question once you have posted will appear at the top of the subjects and move down as others post.  Any new replies you have got, you will see "new" written next to them.  does that help?
