Trouble TTC

Another Clomid question...

Good morning all,

So I took my last 50mg of Clomid Tuesday evening.  That night I had a few hot flashes and a headache but that's it.  Yesterday and today I've been headachy, hot one minute cold the next, and extremely moody!  When do these side effects wear off??

It's 75 degrees here in Chicago and my office was very sticky and muggy this morning. I was sooo hot 10 minutes ago. Now I'm freezing cold and want to curl up under 5 blankets!  Is this normal?!

Re: Another Clomid question...

  • Some people will feel "off" almost their entire cycle (not just from the clomid, but s/e from ovidrel, and progesterone).  Personally I remember having headaches even after I stopped the clomid, but not hot flashes more than a day or two after I stopped them.  But admittedly it's been over a year and a half since I last took clomid.

    As for our Chicagoland weather  - I don't know about you but I am so sick of the humidity this summer.  It's insane!

  • The things we do to get pregnant, I tell ya!  Thank you for your response.

    I'm sick of the humidity too!  Not sure where you are in the Chicagoland suburbs, but I'm also in the suburbs and although the t-storms we got the other night were pretty awesome, the flooding from all that rain, however, was not.   My morning commute yesterday to work was blocked off from two different directions!

    I'm in the far NW suburbs.  Don't know if you saw a picture of the train track where the ground underneath was washed away but that's the line my husband takes to work.  But his stop is closer to the city then that.  But yeah, he worked from home yesterday because all paths to metra were underwater.  We live high on a hill so no damage for us but many in my town are dealing with it today.

    I'm in the far north suburbs; however, I work/grew up in the far NW suburbs (howdy neighbor!). I didn't see that picture yesterday. I did hear about the paths being underwater! Crazy! Glad there was no damage to your home.

  • Well if you grew up this way then you might know where Algonquin/Lake in the Hills is. :)  If you are in the far N suburbs, do you go to FCI or another clinic?  I go to FCI in Crystal Lake but have been to the offices in River North and Highland Park which are the only two locations that do IVF so I'll be spending more time there this fall.

    I agree!!! 

    I have a family member in CO...needless to say, she's moving!!! I can't believe all that's gone on there this past year :(

    My headaches, moods, and hot flashes are under control at this point.  Hopefully they're gone for good?!

  • Clomid causes hot flashes and chills whenever I take it. Pretty normal and very annoying.
    TTC my #1 with PCOS since June 2010.
    Clomid cycle #'s 1-4 from Dec. 2010, Feb. 2011, (saw first RE dx'ed w/PCOS in June 2011), Sept. 2011, Mar. 2012=BFNs.
    TTC BREAK: lost 85 pounds on a low carb/no sugar diet from Nov. 2011-Sept. 2012 & found a new RE!
    Oct. 2012: CD 3 blood work came back
    FANTASTIC!
    Femara cycle #1 Dec. 2012=BFP/chemical pregnancy :(
    Femara cycle #2 Jan. 2013=BFN.
    Clomid & Femara combo cycle #1 Mar.-Apr. 2013=BFN (missed LH surge by a week!)
    June 2013: SURPRISE AF!!! Thanks to Vitex liquid & D-Chiro-Inositol.
    August 2013: Another surprise AF on CD 67. Is my body regulating itself? I hope so!
    October 2013: AF arrived au naturel making this cycle only 38 days long (wow!). Thank you, Lord.

    November 2013: AF came on her own again. 32 day long cycle! Unbelievable.
    December 2013: Unusual spotting for days followed by no spotting then finally AF arrived.
    January 2014: New health insurance, new doctor, new plan! Pelvic & transvaginal ultrasounds done on Jan.13th=NORMAL RESULTS. AF arrived a little late on Jan.26th.
    Feb. 2014-Aug. 2014=AF arrived on time. 
    TTC plan: Continue weight loss (60+ pounds lost since September 2013 on low carb, no sugar diet), track ovulation, induce with meds if necessary, and baby dance. 
  • I have had 3 rounds of Clomid 50 mg day 3-7 and every round is different. Hot flashes for the most part are a constant and for me last till about cycle day 11. I get hot flashes,  wicked mood swings, and I want to eat everything insight.

    Sounds like you are hitting some of they typical symptoms :(

    TTC since 1/2011
    DH 32 SA Only 3% Normal Forms, but good count good motility
    Me 32 DOR FSH 11.3, AFC 7, HSG normal

    12/26/2013 Starting Lupron for IVF#2
    1/21/2014 Retrieval but we still only had 1 follicle so only 1 egg. Fingers Crossed!!!
    2/5/2014 BFP!! Betas 39, 54, 217, 1681 Slow rising but this is the little egg that could :)
    2/19/2014 1st U/S at 6w1d showed us at 5w4d but yolk sac, gest. sac and the beginnings of a fetal pole identified. 
    2/26/2014 2nd U/S at 7w1d showed us at 6w4d and we saw a heartbeat!!! 133. RE says it's time to move to OB
    So far everything is looking good :)

    This is exactly the way it goes for me! I'm on my second cycle with Clomid 100mg and Ovidrel. Thank goodness my progesterone levels are high enough and I don't need to supplement. Though I feel like I get those side effects naturally because my levels are naturally high I think. Like you said, the things we do!
