An Open Letter to Clomid

Dear Clomid,

Why do you suck so much???  I really, really, really hate you!

Ok, I take that back.  You’re not so bad considering that my ovaries respond really well to you.  Still, there’s some things we need to talk about.

You are making me crazy!  What’s with the insomnia whenever I take you???  Waking up every 20-30 minutes all night long does not make for a very happy, or well-rested, me.  And I am crabby when I don’t get my rest.  Ask Ted.  He can vouch for my evilness on not enough sleep.  Seriously.  Cut it out with the insomnia.

Now, let’s talk about hot flashes.  I don’t like them.  They are half the reason I wake up all night long.  I end up drenched in sweat just laying in my own bed.  Not fun.  Plus, I like to sleep with at least a sheet on.  I’m not comfortable just sleeping out in the open air…so if you are making me all sweaty and nasty, the whole keeping my covers on thing doesn’t really work.

Finally, what’s with the breakouts?  I have enough on my plate right now, I don’t really want to worry about pimples.  That’s just rude.

So, in conclusion, please continue doing all the lovely follicle growing that you are doing….just cut the crap in the meantime.




  1. Ugh, I agree with all of your point. You could play connect the dots with the acne on my back right now. Hideous. And the hot flashes. My poor husband wakes up shivering every night because I have to keep the temperature of our room at like 60.

    (As a side note, I think it’s so cute that your hubby makes your lunches, too!!!)

  2. Darn you, Clomid! Stop messing with my friend Erin!! (But keep messing with her in all the right ways, if you know what I mean.)

  3. Ack!! This sounds so horrible 🙁 I know what you mean about not being able to sleep in open air. I used to live on the 3rd floor of my building with NO A/C and I remember one summer it was +29 at night and I still had to be underneath something.

    Tonight I’ll be praying for you, and wishing you a well-rested night!!

  4. side affected from meds are the worst!

  5. clomid sucks…it gives me the blues really bad and I’m double up the dosage next month.

    Hope the zits and night sweats equal a BFP!

  6. Oh noes! That doesn’t sound fun at all. Side effects can be so annoying. I hope you feel better and get some sleep!

  7. Feeling hot and insomniac? That sounds like me and I don’t even take clomid 🙁

    ps. what do you use for your pimples? I have them too, I have teen girl skin :p

  8. I’m sorry, sweetie.

    I’m considering putting together a theatre piece on the subject of infertility because of you and this blog. It probably won’t be until far down the road, but it is a goal of mine now. I wanted to let you know. Saying prayers for you.
