Strange Symptoms?
livelaughmoe posted:
I started Clomid two weeks ago and had an HSG that same week. Its day 20 and I have been having cramping (almost more like pressure in my lower abdomen area, more discharge than normal and I also have a strange increase in sexual desire. Anyone else ever experience this?

That's a good question, livelaughmoe. Unfortunately, I've never been on Clomid or had HSG. Hopefully, one of the other ladies here will post with their experience. You may want to ask your doctor or pharmacist about those symptoms.

You can also post on the member-created Clomid Community , too.

Hope you get your BFP!

Your ovaries are probably responding nicely to the Clomid. If you recruit an extra follicle or more, it can result in increased pelvic pressure, cramping and an increase in the concentration of your natural hormone levels. You sound like you are more fortunate than most women who often complain that they feel worse on Clomid with hot flases during the first half of the cycle and an execerbation their PMS symptoms in the second half of the cycle. Good luck this month!
