    My periods were always the same on Clomid, except that they were more regular but the flow was about the same or lighter. Was there a possibility that you are having an early miscarriage? On my second round of clomid, my period was very heavy, and I had cramps which I don't normally have, but it was a miscarriage, but it happened right around when my period was suppose to start, it just so happened I knew I was miscarrying because I had taken a pregnancy test and two were positive. Not trying to freak you out here, though.
    Me(26)DH(28)DD(3) TTC 2nd- 1yr, 1st round of clomid 50mg - BFN, 2nd - MC, 3rd- BFN. Been trying naturally 6mos, waiting for AF in Sep to start 100mg of Clomid!

    My cycles varied on Clomid. Some were average, some were heavier than normal. As long as you're having a cycle and it's not dragging on and on, I would assume you're okay. Never hurts to get the doctor's opinion, though.

    Well, glad it's not that. Maragayle is probably right, you're probably fine, but if you want to be sure and want peace of mid, it doesn't hurt to call.
