This is my second cycle doing clomid, and the s/e are more then what I had the first cycle. Still the same hot flashes and moodyness, but a lot more hot flashes and also I am moody a lot more too. Is this normal?

Edited to say:
I am very tired as well this time around. Is that an s/e?

The first cyle I just noticed headaches and moodiness. The second cycle I was more tired and had some hot flashes. Then I took a three month break. I did the third cycle last month and I didn't have a lot of side effects other than the tiredness. I felt so lazy and had no energy to do anything. I would go to bed super early and sometimes take naps on the weekends or on my days off.

I think the tiredness is definately a side effect. I did notice my side effects where less when taking the Clomid at night.

Thanks hun, I do take it at night. Right before bed. Its ok I cant complain too much! But yes that is more, takes me forever to get up then I dont want to. And I feel so lazy, I havent cleaned the house all wkend and I need it. Feels like when I have AF all over again, it sucks.

Nope just 50mg just like last cycle. I noticed the hot flashes the morning after I took the first pill. Then the moodyness started yesterday and onto today. Poor Dh, I told him to just ignore it because it was the clomid. He is doing good about taking it like a man! And tired so tired that started today, and its my third pill.

I am calling my doctor tomorrow because the 50 mg didn't work for me this cycle. I am hoping she bumps me up to 100 or 150 mg. I Oed late, even on the Clomid. I asked her to just start me off with the 100 mg last month but she wouldn't. Now maybe she'll listen to me this time! Good luck to us both. This has just got to end soon with our babies in our arms. God knows I can't take much more of this heartache.

Aww hun I am sorry. I know my dr said he ALWAYS starts off with the lowest dosage no matter what. So I started off with 50mg, I oed on CD17 which is fine with me! I am still on 50 because it worked just fine for me. Good luck, tell me what your dr does!
