Since my husband and i trying to coneive a baby and have the unexplaind case of infertility,dr put me on clomid for 6 rounds,but i made only 1 insemeniation and was failed.The second one was not completed because of after taking Clomid and folowing the eggs sizes dr found that the follicle got smaller than 17m .Iam writing Today to ask about during taking Clomid i lost my bleeding after the first bill and dr asked me to continue taking bills inspite of no bleeding.I have the period on 1st of sept.with a heavy cramps all over my legs day days and nights.My period lasts usually for 7days but now in this period i have it for 4 and on 5 discharges but it is very shy on day 1-2-3.

User avatar Hello,
One of the most common complaints on clomid is cramping. You should be in touch with the doctor to be sure you aren't having any deep vein blood clots, since you mention leg pain, but I suspect it is not that. Since there are many side effects with clomid for some women, you have to decide how much you can tolerate when trying to conceive.

Best wishes.

User avatar Hello,
Most often the deep vein thrombosis occurs in the calf of the leg. It is very sore and usually has redness and perhaps warmth. If you have those symptoms you should see a doctor and not rub the leg because you don't want to dislodge the clot. But, these can be treated but they are serious.

I doubt that is the kind of pain you are having but it won't hurt to discuss it with your doctor.

Best wishes.
