Generic vs. Name Brand Clomid and Ovulation Day
 
This is really weird, but I took generic clomid (serophene?) last month and felt like crap, had horrible ovary pain, felt myself ovulating, ovulated on day 16 and had bad migraines. This month I had to pick up my meds somewhere else and they gave me name brand Clomid but this time...I didn't get half as many headaches or side-effects, haven't had hardly any ovary pain and have no sign of ovulating!! Last month I was also really dry around this time, this time around I'm not dry at all.

Last month I used a digital OPK (clear blue, the $200 monitor) and I had high fertility for about 4 days before having one day of peak fertility (peak fertility = day of ovulation). This month I've had zero days of high fertility so far :(. Even though I was dry for awhile before ovulating, when I did O I had ewcm. Like I said, this time I'm not dry at all but don't have EWCM.

What's going on :(? Could there be a difference or is this just my body going crazy?

Hmmm...there shouldn't be any difference between the generic and the name-brand. My first month I was given the generic, 25mg, and didn't ovulate. My second month I got 50mg of the name-brand, and I ovulated! The side effects were similar, so I'm pretty sure it was the dose, and not the source of the pills that made the difference. Are you on the exact same dose? Are you taking it at the same time of day that you took it last month?

Thanks for your response, Melissa :). It was the same dose, I took it at the same time (at night) but started it a few days later. Last month, I started it 5 days after the first day of spotting, this month I waited until 5 days after actually bleeding. I'm only on cd 14...so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. :/

The timing could be making the difference...hope it is a good difference and that it works!!

I always took generic, always same dose and same cycle days .... my s/e were worse with my first round and o varied from cd 12 - 17. I guess it just depends on how your body responds in a given cycle. Good luck!!!
