Clomid is EVIL!

I am on clomid for my clomid challenge test this month. I am on day 4 of 100mg of clomid. I have been on clomid once before and all I did was have hot flashes and exhaustion/fatigue & nightmares. This time (I'm on twice the dosage i was the first time and it's been about 1.5 years since then) I have fatigue/exhaustion, mood swings, irritability, hot flashes, nightmares, etc. needless to say I can't wait for this cycle to be over! LOL. I go in on 1/2 for my blood work. I'm quite excited. I'm curious what my TSH will be by then. Not to mention my FSH! I really hope it turns out to be an ok number.


I also am hoping that it shows that my endometritis is gone. However on the other hand it would be nice to be able to stay on the antibiotics for a few more weeks just to be sure the infection is gone. A friend of mine on FF says that the bacteria multiplies rapidly so if there are ANY left over it will end up coming back again. She said I should be on the meds for about 3 weeks. I'd rather do it now so it will be gone for my IVF. I'm afraid my RE will tell me it's not necessary. I'm hoping that even if he doesn't think it's necessary that he will let me go back on it. It can't hurt so why not??

Hang in there! Only a couple more days to go :)

UGH, clomid!!! I've heard bad things about that drug...I was so scared by everything I heard that I decided never to try it (for my previous IUI) and went straight to injectibles. I've heard about those annoying side effects! I hope you're feeling better soon...how much longer will you be on clomid?

I'm on Lupron right now...I have terrible headaches and mood swings! My teeth/gums also hurt so much - very sensitive - this is a new s/e for me on Lupron...fun!

Good luck with the clomid challenge!

That is a good idea to get bl! I need to do that.

Good luck with your TSH/FSH today. Update us when you can.
