So I started Clomid about two weeks ago, took it for five days. Side effects were numerous the first few days: dizziness, severe moodiness, bloating, hot flashes, GI distress, extreme exhaustion and just general unmotivated feeling.
Most of those seemed to subside a day or two after the last pill but now the worst effect of all is ruining my life. I've gain about four pounds. In LESS than two weeks.
I'm a fitness professional, eat an extremely clean diet, train 6-7 days a week. I don't touch dessert. My lifestyle has kept me lean and fit and happy for years with my weight never changing more than a pound up or down.
Now here I am feeling horrible, my clothes don't fit right, I can't stand to even look in the mirror. Weight gain for a pregnancy? No problem. Weight gain just because of this stupid pill?? Sucks. I SO regret doing this. Can anyone share a similar experience so I feel less alone in this?View Thread
