Thanks for the query.
Clomiphene helps in ovulation induction.
Minor side effects like pain abdomen, blurring of vision etc can be seen with clomiphene.
But usually they will subside soon without need of medication.
As you are having persistent pain, better to rule out rare but serious side effect like ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.
So, consult your gynecologist once and go for ultrasound.
Ultrasound helps in ruling out the possibility of hyperstimulation and also helps in monitoring the follicular growth.
By follicular study you can track the ovulation and can plan intercourse around that period.
This will increase the possibility of pregnancy.
Take care.

Hi. Welcome to HCM. Clomid stimulates the release of hormones necessary for ovulation to occur. It is mainly used for treating female infertility. The ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) has been reported to occur in patients receiving Clomid. Symptoms of OHSS include swelling of the hands or legs, abdominal pain and swelling, shortness of breath, weight gain, and nausea or vomiting. Other side effects are breast tenderness, blurred vision, headache. You should consult your doctor if u experience severe abdominal pain , shortness of breath. Also remember clomid may increase the likelihood of multiple births. Regards.
