I am on day 7 of injections. I tried Clomid twice and ended up hospitalized due to softball sized cysts on both ovaries, so i am a bit worried this medication will do the same :/ So far it has been ok since with this medication they monitor you much closer. My only complaint is that i have had horrible cramps ever since shot 1 and i feel as if i have to walk very gingerly.
