  • Thanks so much. I told my husband what you all said and he started to cry I think! I already have BAD mood swings when I PMS. He always hates it when I'm ready to start b/c I drive him crazy. So he's going to love this! As long as it works though I think I'll be ok. I think that if I start taking it and it does make me kinda...well, psycho...that as long as I remind myself that it's going to make me get pregnant (well hopefully anyway). I had a friend who took it and she got pregnant within three weeks....so I'm guessing it's pretty potent stuff. She already had one but she did lose the second baby. Is that common with this pill??

  • No. I don't believe miscarriage's are any more likely with clomid and a singleton pregnancy.

  • Thanks. I was kind of worried about that. She scared me a little bit, I thought that was like another risk with the pill or something.

  • I took clomid my 1st time TTC, got twins on the 4th cycle. I also turned into psychotic crazy lady.

    The miscarriage rate does go up with clomid, but only after several cycles. Over time, usually 5-6+ cycles clomid can cause your uterine lining to thin out, thus increasing chance of miscarriage. If your dr monitors you with u/s and b/w, you'll know your lining thickness and can skip the cycle if it is too thin. Still, it's not something to be overly concerned about if your only on the meds for a few months.

    Everyone responds differently to this drug, I've know people who have no side effects and great stimulation, and I've known people with horrible side effects and no stimulation, and everything in between. That said, chances are good it will work for you.
