[quote=myprayers]I am on my 1st round of clomid as part of the CCCT (100mg) CD5-CD9. Today was the 3rd day on clomid and I have started experiencing deeply disconforting soreness in the pelvic area. The soreness is below the belly button and more towards the right and left regions. If I take a deep breath in and bloat my tummy, it feels like the entire abdomen is sore. I also woke up in the middle of last night to empty my bladder - this is something I have never experienced on a normal day. And I am having too much gas too.
These seem to be the side-effects of clomid. Has anyone experienced these effects so early in their cycle? Is the discomfort indicating that my ovaries are doing something and more interestingly, follicles are maturing? Has anyone had such symptoms but not ovulated in a clomid cycle?[/quote]
Unfortunately, abdominal/pelvic pain in itself is not an indicator that the clomid is in fact working. I took clomid for several cycles with varying doses. I experienced aweful pain during all of my clomid cycles, but did not produce one single mature follie. I never had a cyst that was not PCOD related so I really have no clue why I had all that pain while on the clomid. However, my case seems to be a rarer one as many do well on the clomid.
There are many ladies on here that also experienced abdominal/pelvic pain and did get mature follies so I just do not think the pain itself is a reliable enough symptom to say that the clomid is or is not doing the job.
If the pain gets really severe definitely see you Doctor as it could be a cyst or an ovary getting heavy and twisting which is counter productive and dangerous.
I am sure it is nothing to worry about otherwise. you get some nice plump follies out of the deal. :babydust::babydust:
