  • I was fine when I was taking the clomid hun I took it at night before I went to bed..ITS THE HCG SHOT that is making me MISERABLE...I am sooo unhappy and just praying it goes away soon..I can't even get a good nights rest because I get hot flashes and my pillow gets soaked....

  • It's temporary and will subside as the hcg makes its way out of your system. Think of it as a preview of what you might feel like when your hcg levels rise due to pregnancy....
