Clomid
Hi,
I have been prescribed Clomid to help with ovulation. There was no package insert in the box- please could you tell me of side effects and such? I wonder about the effects of the drugs on my body since they're basically forcing me to ovulate. What should I expect while taking Clomid?
Thanks,
Jane
