Clomid side effects

So far, so good with the Clomid side effects. My last dose is today and I'm thankful that so far things have been pretty good. A couple headaches and a handful of hot flashes is nothing compared to what I thought I'd be experiencing this week. However, during the rest of this cycle and when (if!) I have to take more Clomid/a higher dose of it, I should probably repeat the following to myself like a mantra:

There is no reason for me to get irrationally angry or overly emotional and break into tears because;
  • I couldn't remember where I left my book
  • Bugs exist
  • A commercial was loud
  • The elastic on my underwear folded over and felt uncomfortable
  • My computer took a while to load  
  • The dog barks sometimes

Okay, so maybe I'm having a few side effects. 

Also, two of my best friends got married (to each other) last night and let me just say it was a good thing I was wearing waterproof eye makeup.  Glad I thought of that one in advance.


  1. Ah the wonders of Clomid! Glad you aren't experiencing all of the bad side effects, but it sure takes a toll on your emotions!

  2. I laughed at the underwear one, lol. Sorry about the emotional rollercoaster! :/ It's great you have a sense of humor about it though! So excited to see what happens for you this cycle! ;)

  3. This post made me laugh :) I'm glad you're able to manage the side effects and I hope this is your cycle!! On a side note, I LOVE that you're stalking my blog, lol. I am a stalker too and have your's on my list!
