Cant wait!!!!
I have very irregular periods, i dont have a normal cycle ever since i went off the pill. I went for blood tests to check if i am ovulating, the result wasnt good. so my gynae put me on clomid three weeks ago. the anticipation is killing me. i was so impatient and took a HPT yesterday which was negative. my breasts are sore/tender, i am bloated, my back hurts however, no nausea or dizziness. r these side effects of the Clomid or i am just psychosomatic because i want to have a baby? How long does Clomid take to actually work or does it depend on your body?

They could be side effects of Clomid, or PMS. It would be too early for a pregnancy test to be positive anyway. you will have to wait and see whether your period comes or not. The time for Clomid to work varies from person to person.
