    Ummm. Normally I am very regular every morning about 8am - have a good 'clear out'. Finished my 5 days of clomid now and have barely passed more than rabbit droppings in the last 2 days. Anyone else experience this??:oooo:

    Hi! Glad u don't have any side effets that are too bad. A bit of make up will cover up any unsightly pimples!! I seem to be back to normal now. Maybe just coincidence that I have finished the pills a few days ago. Hmmmm. Not sure. Well I am now cd 11 so won't be long till ov (I'm usually around cd 15-17) and then 2ww eeeeeek!!! X

    Hiya there.
    Only side effects clomid gave me was even more hot flushes than I normally get and intense pelvic pain.
    If you don't catch this time (hope you do) and the same happens next cycle on clomid then maybe just eat a bit more fiber and mention it to the gyno?

    Hi thanks falcon. Will mention it if it continues.

    I don't have a scan. As I already ov I am only taking 25mg per day to boost ov so he said scanning isn't necessary. Do u think it should be ?

    You normally only get scanned if they think your been hyperstimulated.

    Don't worry I think overstimulation is more likely on high doses. Also if you had it you would know - the symptoms are lots of pain bloating nausea etc. Different clinics must just have different procedures on what happens when u take clomid. X

    Yes it's normally if your at risk to it like high dose or you get lots of pain. Could also be to make sure your on the right dose (it's actualy doing something before blood tests)
