Ok I just joined today I might say a little bit more about my journey when not in my phone but I had a question. I am suppose to call my obgyn when I start my period and they want me to try clomed? Or another similar medicine I think it starts with a T. I plan on asking more question then but have you used it? What are the side effects? Which one do you prefer and why. Thanks

 I have never had to take any fertility medication but I just wanted to say "Welcome!"

I have been on Clomid and Femara so I am not sure what starts with a T. If you do Clomid make sure and take it before bed to avoid side effects from it. Good luck

I used Clomid & have heard of Femara.  Maybe you're also thinking of the trigger shot?  The trigger shot is used in addition to Clomid to make sure you O - it causes ovulation to happen 36-48 hours after the shot.

I never have symptoms from Clomid.  I have had stronger O pains with the trigger shot, but nothing too bad.  You do have to be careful to not test too early if you get the trigger shot because it is hcg & will give positive pregnancy tests until it all leaves your system.

I have been on clomid before and I never ovulated on it but I did take it at night so you will sleep through most of the side effects.  It did give me bad hot flashed and mod swings.  I took femara this time and like it much better!
