I started Clomid days 5-9 with terrible side effects, from severe abdominal pain, bloating, nausea, vomiting, infection etc., you name it, I had it. I think it was all Clomid related, because prior to Clomid I have been in excellent health. After a positive OPK, I continued to have minor pain to cramping in my pelvic area.
Prior to starting Clomid, my RE wanted to test my progesterone levels on a natural cycle, 7 dpo it came back as 10.5. After a cycle on Clomid, I went for testing 8 dpo (the 7th day fell on a Sunday, so I had to do day 8) only to find out that my progesterone was lower then on a natural cycle, it came back at 9.7. Although, not that bad, but worst then before. In addition, I started light bleeding today and also noticed blood in my stool. I feel like this was supposed to help me but all it did for me is make me fall apart physically and emotionally. It also shortened my cycle to 24 days if what I got today is :af:
I am not sure I trust my RE either. After I ended up in urgent care with my Clomid side effects and then was sent to the ER where they did nothing, I called my RE office the next day where they only told me to call back if it got worst. Finally I got an appointment several days later only for them to ask me how I was, listen to my heart and feel my abdomen in two spots and send me home. What a waste.
I am just really frustrated and disappointed and feel like I have failed again :grr:
Any words of encouragement are welcome!!!
