I do not like Clomid

I know I whined about this already but I really hate the dreaded stuff. I spent most of yesterday in bed with a headache from hell. I get migraines to begin with but this Clomid induced migraine was awful. My head is still hurting today. I took a bunch of Excedrin, tried my old drinking lots of caffeine trick, and nothing worked.

I even tried the stuff we don’t mention on a PG blog. See normal people stay away from that activity when they have headaches but me I get crazy ideas when my head hurts. I started thinking it might get me to release some endorphins and therefore make my headache go away. Not to mention when you are trying to make a baby a little extra practice never hurts. Well it didn’t make me feel any better.

I finally fell asleep last night. I slept through my alarm this morning I guess. I really don’t remember what happened other than the phone ringing at 8 o’clock this morning and looking at the time. I didn’t get my temperature taken today. I rarely miss a temp but I am in a Clomid-migraine induced haze today and don’t know what happened this morning.

As much as I hate how I am feeling I might as well get used to it because this is how I generally feel when I am pregnant. I get horrid headaches when I am pregnant. If I ever get pregnant again you will probably hear more whining about my headaches. I am ultra-sensitive to hormonal changes so I think this is why the Clomid is making me so miserable.

Anyway, that is my whining for today. I hope my headache goes away soon.

  • Sorry to hear about the headaches. I never loved Clomid either. After going to a new fertility doctor, he put me on Tomoxifen. I was really pleased. Fewer side effects occurred, it was cheap on Walmart’s pharmacy list, and best of all after five years of trying, I am now pregnant!!! Some doctors won’t use Tomoxifen because it is not approved for fertility yet, but it is a similar agent to Clomid. Talk to your doctor. It may be something to look into.

  • I hope your feeling better, funny I’m going to the doctors today and I planned to beg my doctor to give me clomid after all I have searched your post sounds like I never want to get this med since I have bad headaches already just like you, maybe i should try what Kb posted? use excedrin Migraine -gel tab- never take more than 2 you will regret it 🙁 – but if you just take the 2 and use one of those eye masks ice packs with a cloth it may help, it helps me sometimes. good luck ! hope you get better hun, have a good day
