  • My doctor always told me that if it didn't work in 6 months, it wouldn't work at all. I took it and was pregnant within 2 months. I never experienced any side effects during that time.

  • I took several cycles and it did not work for me. I have PCOS and once I began seeing a fertility specialist I saw why it wasn't working for me. I never had side effects. But I also would never take it without monitoring - with my regular OB/GYN I just took it on days 5-9. With the specialist I took it the same days, but also had ultrasounds to see what was happening when I did take it.

    A friend's wife took it for several cycles. They had twins, which, from what I understand, can be fairly common with Clomid.

  • I did 5 through 9 and was pregnant by month 4. I got a little moody and nauseated, but that was about it.

  • I'm 27, and have PCOS. I've done 7 rounds (of various dosages) and miscarried 2x. I got very moody and had hot flashes.
    I've since lost my health insurance haven't done anymore. Good luck!

  • I got pregnant after the second round of Clomid with my first child. I was EXTREMELY moody, we're talking it made PMS look like a picnic. I also got really bad hot flashes and night sweats.

    Best of luck to you, I hope you get pregnant soon!!
