I knew ttc was going to be stressful but it really is taking the piss now
Bella do you get sore areolas/nipples around ovulation time? I'm trying to figure out if I'm having an estrogen dominance issue. I read that if it hurts on the front of your bbs and nipples it is probably estrogen. If it is, the issue my prolactin level might be the blame and you don't ovulate with high prolactin levels.

I'm so bumbed right now.

They don't get sore as such. I'd say more sensitive than sore x

Just jumping in here because I just started taking clomid for the first cycle. I am 17cd and normally i ovulate on cd13/14. Did you find that your cycles are longer now that you are on clomid? I am spotting too. Did you get ovulation spotting on clomid?

I am not sure if I have had any other side effects. I did have headaches and am now just realizing it could be from the clomid.

Also, wanted to let you know that I have been on progesterone for at least six months now where I take it three days after ovulation and was originally told to take for ten days unless AF comes earlier. I just went back to the dr and he advised that studies have shown it is better to take progesterone up until you get AF and not stop at 10 days. Hope this helps!

I found my cycles were shorter on Clomid but because i have PCOS my natural cycles vary and can be quite long. On Clomid my cycles were average 31 days and I had a positive OPK on cd16 on my June cycle.

I am on a break from it this month as it was getting too much with all the side effects. Not had any side effects this cycle but I know my chances of ovulating naturally are extremely low so I'm not expecting a bfp this month.

I didn't get any spotting but did get af type cramps quite a lot. I have never been advised to take progesterone x

Yeah, I've been on break for 2 cycles. No clomid and my temps show it. However, the side effects of Clomid really made me question if it was right for me or not.

I want to try some thing else but have to see the doctor to make sure everything else is okay before I start poking at my ovaries again.

FX for you two to get a bfp this month!!!

Yeah I'm unsure if I'll go back on the Clomid. The way i felt when I last took it was awful and I never want to feel like that again.

The fertility clinic said there is an alternative to Clomid that I can try but I will have to start again from the beginning.

For now I'm just happy as I am. Not stressing and symptom spotting constantly. Ttc was taking over my life

Just going to take the next few months as they come and not put myself under so much pressure.

Good luck to you both
