I'm new to all of this so I'm not sure if this has been discussed yet or not.

Clomid can produce some great results, but also has side effects that come along with it. Here is some more information about it from our Health site: http://www.ivillage.com/clomiphene/what-is-clomiphene/92591

I've heard good things on the boards about acupuncture, that it's help members to regulate their cycle, and even lengthen it. I wanted to pass along an article that talks about Chinese philosophies when it comes to nutrition and fertility: http://www.ivillage.com/infertility-cure-how-nutrition-makes-difference/6-a-144566

The author has a book out about it, you might find it in your library.

For me, the first thing was to find out what exactly was going on.

I have tried acupuncture and loved it. It really regulated my cycle and made it more manageable. I have heard great things about women doing acupuncture and increasing their fertility. I have been on Clomid too. The side effects I experienced were headache, dry CM and mood swings. I usually drink V8 Splash once a day until O to help produce good quality CM. Are you thinking about continuing with acupuncture?
