Can the be Clomid effects afterwards
Hi Doc,

I have been on Clomid for 3 cycles, but because of really bad side effects especially the abdominal pain and bloating I stopped using it. I do not experience any more hotflushes, abdominal pain or bloating but I have very tender breasts. Is it possible this can still be because of the Clomid? Thanx

Dear TTC

Abdominal pain, bloatedness and hot flushes as well as tender breasts are known side effects of Clomid. However theses side effects are transient and should not last longer than 2 to 3 months after stopping the Clomid. If its more than 3 months of stopping the Clomid and you are still experiencing these effects then I would suggest you get assessed by your gynaecologist to look for other causes of these symptoms.
