Clomid (Progesterone level update)

Well, I had blood drawn yesterday to check the level of my progesterone. The test basically checks your level which in return will tell you if you ovulated. Well, I just got a call from my doctor's office and they informed me that I did indeed ovulate. They like to see the level over 10 and my level was 16.5 so we definitely ovulated. I had no doubt at all, but it is always nice to have the reassurance. So, just wanted you all to know..... I will keep you posted.
Ta Ta for Now : )

My name is Helen Page and i would like to show you my personal experience with Clomid.

I am 30 years old. I have taken for 3 months. My progesterone level after my first dose of Clomid was 65 so I knew that I had ovulated. Couldn't try the second cycle on it because my husband went out-of-town while I was O'ing, go figure. Hoping it worked this month!!

I have experienced some of these side effects-
Mood swings, increased appetite, hot flashes, increased pain during ovulation, abdominal pain, mild but infrequent headaches. Also, I used to be on a consistent 28 day cycle, but I think Clomid might have lengthened it as I'm now on a 31-32 day cycle.

I hope this information will be useful to others,
