Clomid: D2 - D6

But in my case, since I have forgotten to bring along the medicine, I skipped D5 and continue to eat it on D6 and D7.


I noticed that clomid makes me nausea and headache. Other than these, no problem.


Semoga TTC kami akan berjaya dalam Februari 2012 Ya Allah. Amin Ya Rabbal Alamin.



According to infertility.about.com,

Nausea and Dizziness

About 2% of women experienced nausea and vomiting while taking Clomid. This is another side effect, which may be lessened by taking the medication in the evening. If the nausea is intense, or you have trouble keeping down food and fluids, be sure to report this to your doctor. Severe nausea can also be a sign of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, a rare but potentially dangerous side effect of fertility drugs.

CD2:Clomid

My cycle was on time this cycle. No wonder la I felt my breast sakit and lenguh pinggang. I thought because of the travelling to Muar.

My Father-in-law was admitted to hospital on Sunday. He was sesak nafas on Saturday at 9.00pm. Husband and his twin together with MIL took him to BP's 24-hour clinic but was rejected and referred to hospital.

Admitted around 2.30am Sunday and until today, still there. Diagnosed with emphysema.


So, tonight I will start on Clomid 100mg for 5 days.

First Step

The first step in TTC journey is to make appointment with infertility specialist to determine the root cause of infertility. Do not mistaken with Obstetrics and Gynaecology doctors because they are pro in pregnancy and delivery cases. I made this mistake earlier.

I contacted Klinik Dr Hamid Arshad to schedule an appointment on 12/12/11 as I would be on replacement holiday and my husband is willing to accompany me on that day.

We started our journey from Shah Alam after breakfast around 9.30am. Reached there about 10.15am because we have to search the area as we weren't familiar with it. DBKL parking was full, so we proceeded to ground multi-level parking. Jangan park bawah CIMB tu, busuk.


Upon entering the clinic, put both of your IC in the box and proceed to the waiting area. After a while, our name was called and a nurse will take all particulars such as blood pressure, weight, height, period history etc.

Then waited again in the waiting room until your turn to see the doctor. As I was under the Kempen Kesihatan Wanita conducted by Dr Aimy, I was assigned to her. It seems that Dr Aimy is Dato' Dr Hamid's daughter-in-law.

She reviewed my data and asked few questions about both of us. Then she asked me to the Bilik Periksa (Examination Room) and to strip from waist and below. Kind of shy but belasah ajelah..

She started to do vaginal examination and confirmed I have PCOS. I was quite surprised because the treatment we tried in 2010 never confirmed that. Now I know why my period in 2011 was haywire and my weight seemed to susah nak turun. More about PCOS.

She gave me Metformin, Norculut, Adipex, Saw Palmetto and a slip to Klinik Daya X-Ray to do HSG. Total paid was RM124.00 as the consultation and ultrasound was free.

HSG is to be done after period, anytime selepas kering and 11th day.

Metformin - to treat insulin resistant found in PCOS sufferer.
Norculut - untuk turunkan period. More about Norculut.
Saw Palmetto - helps in treating infertility.
