My doctor has mentioned Clomid, and I'm worried about being on a medication that strong and it's side effects.  If I decide to go in this direction, I was hoping to get some feedback on dosages so I have some background information.  Also, how bad were the side effects for you?

My first dosage was clomid 100mgs two (2) 50 mg pills for five (5) days. I took them both at the same time in the morning every day with the help of my alarm clock. I also had a sono performed on day five. (5) and to discover I have developed more than twenty follicles within one (1) ovary and the Dr.'s were quite amazed at how I was doing so Well on clomid . The only serious side effect I experience with clomid is thining of the Uterus Lining. It wasn't bad but I had to rebuild my uterus back on it's own with food and estradiol. I am fine now the Dr's told me I'm a 10 they need uterus at an 8. clomid does work and you need to be closely monitored.

My doctor prescribed me clomid 100mg... Im too far into this cycle, so will be starting next cycle. ( I ovulate, but my cycles are still wonky after a d&c, so this will help regulate them, and give us an exact time frame to do it!)

I guess that didnt really answer your questions now did it! lol

I did read online that you should take it before bed, because it lessens the side effects... ( make sure you take it at the same time on day..)
