    New to Clomid
    navywife717 posted:
    My husband and I have been trying to conceive for the last 2 years. Now my doctor has put me on Clomid. I start my first round in a couple weeks. I've been reading some reviews and I'm getting nervous about the possible side effects that can take place from miscarriages to cysts. I really hope this solution is the right one for us. I really want to be a mom so bad, and I know my husband would make an excellent father. We've been praying about this everyday, and I'm really hoping clomid is a success for us.

    I got pregnant with 50mg, but m/c. They are starting me on 100mg. Hopefully you will ovulate like I did on 50mg, and get your BFP! Good luck!

    So Navywife how are you doing? Have you started Clomid yet?
    I'm also new to Clomid. I took 50 mg last month, i did ovulate on it but no pregnancy. This is my second round and i'm waiting for ovulation. I didn't have any side effects the first round except some little warm feeling and i was taking the pills before bedtime. But this time around, i had terrible hot flashes, terrible warm feelings, nausea, fever and headaches for 3 days! I was taking Tylenol to releive the pain. But i will say just stay positive, it is worth the pain if at the end you will be holding a bundle of joy. I have an appointment on the 20th to check my progesterone level, last month it was at 26.3. The only thing i can do is staying positive and hope for a BFP. It is hard and sometimes i'm really sad about this situation, but worrying doesn't do any good and surely doesn't change anything, so i better just let go and let God. Keep us posted.

    OMG! I know exactly how you are feeling. I have had nothing but hot flashes, nausea, and warm feelings. I just went through my first round. My doctor said it looked like I had an egg trying to mature, but not soon enough to get the shot to help out in the ovulation time frame I was going to be in. The exact day I would have needed to come back their office was going to be closed for labor day. So I'm thinking this month was a no go. Hopefully it will be better for me next month. How has your process been?

    am sorry to hear that navywife, there is always next month. stay positive, thats all we can do while in the process of the unknowns.
    roxypam replied to navywife717's response:
    Aww sorry to hear that.
    Well my progesterone level in August was at 12, less than the previous month (26), i don't know why and the doctor said it was ok and i did ovulate...But no BFP. So i decided to take a break from all of this before seing a fertility specialist.
