Hoping there's still someone out there that can shed some light. Have any of our beautiful pregnant mommies become pregnant on Clomid/Clomihexal/Fertomid?
What symptoms did you experience after ovulation? Was it due to the medication? Or was it real pregnancy symptoms?
I am on 4DPO after my second round of 100mg Fertomid and after my first ovulation EVER! Hurt like hell, I must add. And I'm experiencing some weird symptoms - Symptoms I've never had before in my TWW. They are:
1) Funny taste in mouth
2) Extreme fatigue - Yawning till my eyes water right through the day
3) Water CM and feeling WET down there the whole time
4) Tender and swollen boobies - they spill out of my bra
5) Sensitive nips - Even if my shirt touches it.
6) Need to wee a lot...
7) Increase BBT four days in a row
8) Dull aching/throbbing feeling in tummy - As if I swallowed a rock!
9) Twinges and cramping in uterus
10) Lower back ache.
11) Lethargy and lack of concentration/focus
12) Dizziness and faintness - Whole rooms turns.
13) Headaches - The whole freaking time
14) Some heartburn/reflux, flatulence
15) Not hungry, but craving certain foods
16) A combination of diarrhea and constipation
17) Feeling cold the whole time
This might be just because of Fertomid, but it's strange. Any inputs??

I didn't get pregnant while on clomid and never had any symptoms.
But symptoms that seemed common amongst friends who took clomid were the heavy lower abdominal feeling, pee'ing lots, fatigue, sensitive boobs, twinges, backache, constipation.
And many people say early pregnancy symptoms are very similar to PMS.
Oh, how I realate to you. It is such an emotional time while on any fertility treatments. We all read into any and every little 'different' feeling that we think we are experiencing... But after a number of failed cycles I realised that I needed to be more informed and realistic about what is going on in my body. If you say that you ovulated for the first time ever, your body will obviously feel very different now than during previous cycles, so celebrate the fact that you DID ovulate and that you are one step closer to having the bundle of joy and more answers.
After ovulation, fertilazation only takes place a day or two after and if that was successful it takes another 3-5 days for the egg to travel down the fallopian tubes and into the uterus. Only then does implantation take place and upto this point no HCG has been released by your body (the pregnancy hormone). So by 4dpo it is unlikely that you are experiencing pregnancy symptoms but maybe more hormonal changes after ovulation took place. Obviously I hope that you do soon start experiencing all the wanted symptoms! I fell pregnant via IVF last year, and are now at 26 weeks, and I did not have any of the symptoms that I was looking for for months and months... I stil dont have the normal symptoms that everyone else are experiencing at this stage... So relax, celebrate all the small achievements along the way, like ovulating. And while saying that, I know that we all drive ourselves nuts with overthinking
Hoping for good news with you in a few days time, good luck with the wait!!

Both my babies were conceived after fertomid treatment. The first one, in 2011, was only on fertomid, 50mg. I don't remember any funny symptoms but maybe it's too far back.
Late last year, I was on a combination of fertomid/femara/estrofem. The first month my ovulation was very painful, like you've described. My ovaries were actually overstimulated, and that's why it was intensely painful (BFN that month). My dosage was then decreased from 50mg to 25mg, and I was pregnant after the 2nd cycle
Of all the symptoms you mentioned I only had the painful ovulation (which was the fertomid and not pregnancy). I've had none of the other simptoms during very early pregnancy, or as a result of the fertomid. My dosage was much lower than yours, so it's not really a great comparison.
