hi im new to this site and new to clomid. this is my first cycle of clomid, i was given 100mg to start on day 2-6 and im now on day 28, im not sure if i ovulated or not, although i did have cramping in both left and right side of my stomache. i have been put on clomid due to irregular periods and not ovulating. so far i have had hot flushes and bloatedness, loss of appetite (which soon came bk lol) headaches, very slight blurred vision(but that subsided quickly) the only thing i still have is i cant shift the heavy bloating feeling i dont no why im still getting it, im very confused, i have taken a preg test and it came bk negative. ive not seen anyone with the same as me (although i no there are - im obviously looking in wrong area) i also have a fibroid that is the size of a 5p and was told it should not effect me concieving. does anyone out there have the same

I don't have any experienc of fibroids but I did take clomid for 6 months. Have you been offered any monitoring? I had a scan every month and had day 21 progesterone tests for the first two months to check whether I'd ovulated.

If you don't fall pg this month, could you ask your Dr to check whether you are ovulating or not?

Good luck and I hope you get your BFP soon grin

You should not be given clomid without being monitored throughout the whole time you are on it as it is actually quite powerful stuff with side effects as you have described. Gps cannot monitor you properly as they do not have either the time or the expertise to do so. I would complain actually, this is poor practice on the part of the GP.

You should not also be given this without a diagnosis of the underlying problem. Clomid is not suitable for all women with ovulatory problems.

I would ask your GP to refer you to a gynae at a subfertility unit if this has not already happened. You need to be monitored properly.
