Started clomid

I stared clomid today! I took my first tablet two hours ago, and so far I don’t have any symptoms other than a headache- which is apparently normal. The nurse told me that some people go bat-shit crazy on clomid. literally. She told me that some people just randomly start crying for no reason, others get so aggressive they have to take time off work/school to cope. Hopefully, I don’t get that way!

For those who don’t know, clomid is a drug that causes a follicle (or several) to grow so that you can control ovulation. I have to take it for 5 days, then have an ultrasound to check how it is growing. If it’s a mature follicle (14-22mm), then I have to take a HCG shot to mature the egg in the follicle and to induce ovulation. Then I have my IUI two days after that.

I’m excited!

Talk soon! X
