Hi...does anyone know if Clomid will actually lengthen your cycle? Twice now my cycle went to the 34th day; which was so brutal as I really thought that I was pregnant both times! Also, does anyone know any ways to lessen the side effects of Clomid? I am only on 50 mg but my husband told me last night that he refers the the last cycle as "ferocious b----" time; I don't want to do that to him...it's already hard enough on our marriage! Any help???
I had the opposite happen, it shortened my cycle. Well, actually put it back the way it was b4 mc in Jan. I take mine in the am and so far have not had the bit@hiness or sweating. Now, on round 2 at 100mg, I started getting the double and blurry vision. It doesn't last real long and comes and goes. I know a lot of women were complaining about the sweats and grumpies. All seemed to take it at night. Maybe there's the difference, I can't say for sure.
I didn't actually have a cycle when I started taking it, because I wasn't getting af on my own (I have PCOS) and had to take provera to induce it. But I've been on it 4 times now (in the middle of 4th cycle so I don't know how long it is yet), and the 2 times it made me O, my cycles were 33 and 35 days long. I O'd on CD 19 and CD 21. I think I O'd CD 19 this month too. Also, each time I've taken it, it's gotten a little easier with the side effects. I was really scared when they doubled my dose the 3rd cycle, cuz I thought the side effects would be twice as bad, but it ended up being my easiest month yet! Hang in there - I know it's put a strain on my marriage too. You can always take a break if you need to - that's what I'm doing next month. Although, hopefully there will be no need for a "break" from clomid next month, cuz I'm banking on this to be my month! Hope you get a bfp too and don't need to worry about anymore clomid! :o)
I do ovulate...my progesterone level was at 24 this last cycle...just wasn't the month for me, I guess!
I started to do temp charts and my doctor asked me to stop. Everyone is trying to help me relax a little and he thought that if I wasn't focusing on it from the first thing in my day, it might help (which maybe it did, as I did get pregnant on the first cycle of Clomid, but lost the baby 6 weeks into....
Just not sure how to lessen the side effects...they hit me HARD! I did read today on the internet about these home remedies for conceiving so I am going to try them this cycle (figure can't hurt, so why not?)....including PreSeed, cough medicine, Evening Primrose Oil, Vitamin C and grapefruit juice!
I did EPO and preseed this month - I don't think I needed the preseed necessarily, because I had a ton of watery CM (best kind!). I don't think the robitussin is necessary, and it can't be that good for your body
