Dear Pinky

The main problem with using Fertomid is the production of ovarian cysts and the symptoms that you are reporting may well be related to that. I would therefore strongly suggest that you visit your family practitioner or gynaecologist and have a pelvic ultrasound scan done. This will also aid in ruling out a pregnancy and furthermore will assist in establishing other possible causes of you missing your periods.
