Spotting on Clomid - is this normal?
5 Replies

I took Clomid days 5-9. It is now CD 13 and I have had slight spotting for three days now. Mostly brown in color and very light. Is this normal? Today I feel almost like my period could come - is this a possible sign that I am ovulating? I took a ovulation test today and it did not show a surge. Should I retest tomorrow or later tonight?

i had the same thing, i called my dr. he said it is normal so dont worry, you could be about to or are ovulating.

Hi Jamie ,
I also did the same thing. I spotted cd10-11 . I took clomid 50 mg.for the first time this month on cd3-7. I didn't call my doctor but would have if it had lasted longer.
I agree with Christina .. I think it is most probably ovulating spotting.
I use the clear plan monitor and I have high reading but no peak yet and I'm on cd 13 too. I would test once a day to make sure don't miss your peak.
Good Luck & Sending Baby Dusts this will be our month!!! :-)

I just called my doctor. She said that this is not normal and thinks that my period is coming on. She thinks this because I took provera to induce my period over a week ago. I spotted then, and asked her if I should start clomid even though the spotting wasn't really a period. So she said yes. I took the clomid and now it is CD 13 and she feels that this is my period coming on. I don't know what to think. I am an emotional wreck because I feel that I am losing an uphill battle. I never thought trying to get pregnant would be so tough. You two give me hope that maybe I am going to ovulate. The only thing that worries me is today when the cramps started the spotting went from brown to red. I am supposed to call the doctor back on Friday and let her know what has been going on. I am hoping that the doctor is wrong.

Hi Jamie ,
I'm sorry and hope the doctor is wrong too! But don't give up !! If this is your first month taking clomid it may take a few months to get your cycles straight
I am also spotting but mine is brown. I have not ovulated yet and am starting to wonder if I can..
Good Luck and keep us posted!!

Well this is definitely my period. I am waiting for a call from the doctor's office to find out where we go from here. I don't know if she will let me start another round of clomid so close together. I guess we will have to wait and see.
