Pregnancy Home > Clomid Side Effects
There are a number of less common but more serious side effects with Clomid that you should report immediately to your healthcare provider. These include, but are not limited to:
- Severe abdominal pain (stomach pain)
- Changes in vision
- Signs of an allergic reaction, including an unexplained rash, itching, hives, unexplained swelling, wheezing, or difficulty breathing or swallowing.
Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) can occur with Clomid. OHSS is characterized by enlarged ovaries and can be extremely dangerous. In severe cases, the ovaries could rupture. Symptoms of OHSS include abdominal (stomach) pain or enlargement, upset stomach (nausea), vomiting, diarrhea, and weight gain. If you have these symptoms, contact your healthcare provider right away.
