How concerned should I be over an early period with Clomid?

This is my first month taking Clomid.


Answer by  Mabel (48)

Not too concerning. With Clomid your body is bein manipulated to either ovulate at an exact time, if within that time you do not get pregnant, then normal reaction when I took clomid when not prengnat was that I would get my period 5-7 days earlier than the normal time frame. Don't be so concerned.

Clomid encourages ovulation, and can cause an earlier ovulation than normal (and hence an earlier period than normal). As long as your luteal phase (the time between ovulation and your period starting) was adequate, then there is nothing to worry about.

Early periods are not uncommon when taking Clomid. Since the drug causes ovulation, it may cause periods to occur early until your cycles are regulated. Continue to follow the doctor's orders and if you begin to experience any serious side effects, inform him or her immediately. Good luck!

During the first month of Clomid usage your menstrual cycle will most likely be effected. Women may miss their period, have an early period, spot, or have irregular cycles for several months. If you begin to have physical side effects, or do not receive your period by the third month of use, check in with your physician.

It is pretty normal for your period to be knocked around a little when you first start taking any kind of hormonal pill, if you are getting spotting between periods and get other side effects, talk to your doctor.


Answer by  Rose (6804)

Clomid will often make your period come early or even result in break through bleeding caused by a change in hormones. Do not be alarmed but make sure that you speak with your doctor about any changes in your cycle or any symptoms you are having. Clomid has been used for years.
