Clomid made me suicidal, and I felt like a stereotype as to why women don't belong in the workplace. I couldn't stop the crying, and then I would lose my temper over the most trivial annoyances (like getting someone else's voicemail). I only did one round; now I am back to acupuncture which produced a period a few years ago.

I did two rounds of clomid with no luck. I don't blame the clomid for it though...I wasn't having a regular AF so I'm pretty sure that's where my success was hindered. I didn't have any side effects though. I'm really sorry to hear that you have had such an awful experience with it. I'm currently on Metformin and have the common side effects for it though. I just try to remind myself of what I am trying to achieve and it seems to help me get through it. I hope that your side effects taper off and you can handle the medicine soon. Good luck with everything!!

This is my 1st time taking clomid, I already have an 8yr old and she has been asking for a baby for sometime now and hubby as well. If I have no luck w/clomid, it's hubby's turn. Hope I am one of the lucky ones and not get bad side effects!

Don't let us scare you too bad. Some people handle it better than others. I'm just not one that could. My sister did clomid for all 3 of her kids with minimal side effects. Some grumpiness, some headaches, but livable.

Ok guys you are scaring me. I started clomid this month but no angry or mad episodes yet. Now that you mention it I did get headaches but blamed it on the Texas weather, so hot! If I start noticing that I am getting those side effects I will stop immediately. I am ovulating but the doctor said he still wanted me taking the pill because it was very low. I will only be taking it for 3 months. Good Luck all of us!!

I've referred to Clomid as the Evil Pill several times. I did 18 rounds over a 4 yr period. I decided I'd rather not have another baby.

I hated clomid so bad that I swore off fertility and adopted. I did 3 months of that torture - I had hot flashes, got mad at everything - got mad that I was getting mad, would cry - even hid in the back of my closet to cry, and wouldn't lay on my bed because "I wasn't good enough" or something - I was psycho - I couldn't stand it. I don't know how DH lived with me because I wanted nothing to do with myself. Worst thing about it was it was like I knew I was being crazy and still had no control over my emotions. Horrible!!! Oh and I also got migraines (to the point of throwing up) on clomid. My first doctor told me I could be on clomid or the pill (both give me migraines.) I told him I'd talk to DH, but I didn't, I just never went back. Bad doctor.

8-9 years later a friend convinced me there were better meds out there than clomid, and I did injectibles and eventually got pregnant with injectibles and IUI. (I had adopted toddlers and wanted to do baby once.)

My advice - if clomid is that bad for you, know that there are other meds out there and switch. You don't have to endure that garbage to have a baby. Find a doctor who will listen to how you feel and help you feel better.

I got really emotional my first time on it. When I brought it up at the doctors they acted like they had never heard of that as a side effect. I've taken 4 cycles and only ovulated twice. The side effects were not as bad after the first round.

At this point the whole thing seems absurd to me and I don't think it is worth all the emotional crap to keep going with it...if I was just crying it would be managable, but I am angry with everyone and everything and I don't want to be that way....

I totally agree. I take it 5 days a month and on day 4 I can not control my emotions at all. I cried at a commerical the other day and I am not one that cries easy. my husband knows what to expect now so he treads easy those days.

So I am currently on my second cycle of clomid and I have determined that it is a nasty joke thought up by male doctors. I am constantly stupid, hot and angry. So angry that I have zero interest in sex, which makes me madder! I can't even tell if I have ovulated yet this cycle which again makes me madder! Of course no one tells you this may happen, but after looking on the internet, apparently this is "a normal side effect". I don't think this is normal at all - its horrible!!!!!!! Oh yeah, I forgot the other symptom - I want to cry all the time and think my entire life is a miserable waste! This is so great-it better be worth it!
