well.. i found as each month went on, the clomid gave me less and less side effects. first mont of this year gave me massive headaches and moodyness. i was in bed for 3 days sick as with it. but thats just me.. now i dont get any effect at all.
i am on 2 tablets. so i go through one box a month, i think its about $34 from the chemist i go to thats not for the cheaper brand. i dont look at the price lol, i just pay!
i am now going onto my 10th month on clomid. this will be my 5th IUI, as the first 5 mths, i wasnt monitored at all. the first month on 50mg, i didnt ovulate, then the second month i did, those are the only 2 months ive had blood tests.
i was also on clomid a few years ago, 50mg a month for 3 months, all unsuccessful, i was having bloods each one of those, day 21 bloods to confirm ovulation.
i find i get eggagerated post ovulation symptoms. sore bb's cramps, nausea etc, but also remember, for the last 4mths ive had trigger shots too, which is pure hcg.
