For those who have taken Clomid, did you have any side effects, in particular headaches / migraines?

Hi hun.
I get headaches from time to time anyway, some migraines. I didn't notice having any more around clomid than normal, but I've heard some get that side effect. For me, the side effects were mild. I had hot flashes, mood swings, and felt all kinds of things in my ovaries. I swear I could feel them move with every step lol Not painful, just odd.
I am on the lowest dose of clomid though, and obviously the higher doses tend to get more side effects.
The two most concerning things for ttc are your lining can thin down because of it, and your cm tends to not show up as normal. Most women on the lower doses don't have a lining problem.

We use preseed anyway, but I did have some ewcm, and my lining was totally fine.

Are you thinking of taking it for any reason?

My OB mentioned when I had my last appt. that since I'm older and we don't have alot of time on our hands and I don't have a positive O more than 2x in 6 months, she would like to keep it an option. Oddly enough, the 2 positive Os I had resulted in pregnancies both times.

Bear in mind, I might have just missed it. I do use OPKs every cycle, consistently, but that doesn't mean much.
