I've noticed I have put on weight round my middle and my clothes are not fitting properly.

I've always been more or less the same size, exercise regularly and have always had quite a flat tummy - but now my whole mid section is bigger and my trousers (pants) don't seem to be fitting very well.

I didn't over indulge on holiday and was in fact walking, climbing and swimming,bding (!) so I am surprised at the sudden weight gain. Its only my second round of clomid, so I don't know what I will look like if I have to go the whole 6 cycles!!

That on top of TTC is getting me down.

Have any of you experienced weight gain as a result of taking clomid.

Maybe it's just bloating/water weight? I didn't experience that. Sorry!! I hope the Clomid works for you and it will have all been worth it.

I experienced that as well.......VERY LARGE in the abdomin/middle area.

Good Luck this cycle and perhaps you won't have to take it again!

I agree, I don't think clomid is actually making you gain weight. It's actually in your system for a VERY short period of time. It could be water weight though. Clomid really did a number on my stomach as far as upsetting it. It was terrible. Good luck.

I've been taking clomid and feeling huge but last night when I skipped the clomid I weighed about 5lbs less...my normal weight. I think clomid screws with the hormones b/c I've eating healthy, working out several days a week and I gained weight ...doesn't make sense.

I had horrible weight gain on it. My dr. told me that might happen becuase it increases your progesterone. Progesterone among many other things helps you to store the needed wieght during pregnancy.

I have been on it since July and have gained 12lbs. It wasn't the medicine that put the weight on me though. It made me REALLY hungry, and so I have gained some. Hope that made sense.
