Well, either it' s the side effects, or it' s the start of your period, or hopefully very early signs of pregnancy! However, period and pregnancy symptoms are almost exactly the same, so you will have to wait for a missed period before you can test, otherwise the test will come out negative, even if you are pregnant, as it' s too early to tell.
but I had those same smyptoms wtih clomid, so good luck.

I battled for over a year to fall pregnant after my daughter (she is 4 and half now). my Gynae gave me Clomid because it turned out i was not ovulating. I had no side effects at all and i took it for one month. I went to the Dr around when my next period was due as i thought i had a cold i couldn' t shake, but it turns out it was a symptom of pregnancy, i discovered i fell pregnant over Christmas ' 08, after 1 month on clomid - not sure if the constant blocked nose was a side effect of the clomid but it came and when throughout the pregnancy

I now have a healthy 6 week old baby girl and will be paranoid from now on everytime i have a blocked nose:)

in basic lamens terms, clomid makes you ovaries swell so that it makes it easier for the sperm to find and fertilise. I had alot of pain in my abdoment when I took it. It made me moody, I had headaches and back pain too. But in all honesy, if it' s succesful then it' s worth it. I stopped after 1 month' s use bacause I am too senstive, but if you' re not like me then it' s worth a try.
