All drugs have side effects, but if the side-effects are as bad you're saying then I would definitely speak to my Dr about alternatives. I took Clomid and got visual disturbances, and so they told me I had to stop, and prescribed me Tamoxifen instead, which was fine. I wanted to point out that Clomid does work for some people.

I agree with Jeanne (QTeach) the progesterone in your blood can tell your Dr a lot of things about your cycle. The test he might be wanting to do is commonly called the CD21 test (as it's done on CD21!). I just wanted to mention about my experiences of this test. I was tested on CD21 of my cycle (as usual) and my results were low, but I pointed out that as the test should be done 7 days before the end of the cycle, and my cycles were 32 days not 28, then they repeated the test on CD25 and my results were fine.

I hope your appointment goes well, and remember if your Dr says anything that you don't understand then ask, ask, ask! It's the key to you feeling more empowered about your treatment. Wishing you lots of luck

I'll be starting clomid, so I'll be there with you soon I'm sure... I also suffer from migraines, so I understand how hard they are to deal with! Stay strong!
