I've never taken provera, but I've taken Clomid.  What are your concerns?

I experienced hot flashes (especially during the night), headaches, irritability, and a lot cramping and bloating in my low belly while on Clomid. Your Dr. may have mentioned to take the Clomid at night so you can avoid some of the side effects. Clomid has a very long half life and it is also common to continue to experience side effects even after you have stopped taking it (I did).

 

As far as Provera, I'm assuming you are taking it so you can start your period and begin the Clomid? Provera is a synthetic progesterone so toward the end of your pills you may experience some of the same symptoms you would from your body's own progesterone levels if you were about to be getting your period on your own. PMS type symptoms, hunger, moodiness ect.

 

Good luck!

I did not have the Clomid symptoms that bother many people.  The only thing I noticed for sure was that my lining got progressively thinner so definitely keep an eye on it.  You can't stay pregnant without a good lining.

The only issues I had with Clomid was that it really irritated my bladder- but I have interstitial cystitis, so I wouldn't think it would bother anyone else without this condition. I did take mine right before bed.

 

Side effect of Clomid for me- being 9 weeks pregnant. :)
