Why Clomid Has Ruined My Holiday Spirit

Clomiphene: a fertility drug (trade name Clomid) that is used to stimulate ovulation and that has been associated with multiple births.

As you know from my previous post, I began taking Clomiphene Nitrate "Clomid" as part of the Clomid Challenge Test as part of my series of infertility tests. It is by far, THE WORST medication I've ever had to take! I have experienced EVERY side effect associated with this crap- Hot flashes, dizziness, blurred vision, nausea, VOMITING (which I never do), and post ovulation cramping. Not just any cramping, but tear inducing, lying in the fetal position, horrendous cramps. These are just the physical things.

So why put myself through this you ask? Everything is worth the chance to have a baby (and being on Clomid my chances for twins improves by 10%!!). Even bad side effects. Even crazy in-laws.
