Hi, you are under going the fertility treatment, and the HPT are negative, but you are getting the pain in the abdomen. The pain if it is in the upper abdomen, it could be due to the drugs you have used, and if in the lower abdomen may be due to the pelvic infection, urinary tract infection.
Si advise you to consult your doctor for diagnosis. Thank you.

Hi,
Welcome to HCM,

Clomid has caused multiple follicles to form, which is basically a good response of it, and it gives hope that your response to ovulatory stimulation drugs is good, and thus chances of pregnancy are also good. Your breast tenderness is due to Duphaston. Thickness of endometrium is 6 mm, which is bit low, normal should be between 7 mm to 16 mm. May be next cycle your Doctor may decide to give you natural progesteron vaginal pessary instead of oral Duphaston, which will reduce side effects, and increase chances of better endometrial thickness.
When you get your period after clomid, your period could be more painful. At the same time , usually those women who are so impatiently waiting to become pregnant, they feel different type of vague symptoms, when they realize that this cycle has gone unsuccessful, and period is about to come.
besides that your symptoms could also be due to too much stimulation of ovulation due to clomid.your doctor will rule out hyperstimulation due to Clomid, and may advise you to not to take any ovulation stimulating drug for next cycle or may ask you to take oral contraceptive for the next cycle.
Do not become impatient. I feel that once your fibroid has been removed, if there is no other problem, you will conceive soon hopefully.

Best wishes.

Dr H Hamdani
