I have been on metformin for almost 2 years now when we began the fertility process. The Femara is like Clomid will less side afftects It's supposed to do the same thing. The metformin is realy hard on me and we have even tried time release. I take it 3 times a day but I spend most of my time in the bathroom. They said that is pretty common but should start to go away after the second week but it's still the same for me.View Thread
I was just wondering how many of you out there have been on Famera? I have done 10 cycles of Clomid and have done 1 cycle of the Famera. I was just wondering because the I changed Dr's to get on the Famera. Normally my projesterone is checked on Day 22 and they now want it on Day 21. Normally they tell me that a healthy ovulation will be at a 10 and my last test came back at an 8. I was wondering maybe because they tested sooner would be the reason for a lesser number. I'm starting to have pregnancy symptoms as I have been pregnant twice and lost both pregnancies. But I didn't know maybe taking this medicine would be all new symptoms going into my cycle. Any thoughts are welcomed I would most appreciate them. Sending baby dust everyones way!!View Thread
I too have PCOS the pain you were talking about, was it like a burning sensation and gradually get worse? I had pain start off a couple times a week for a few minutes as burning feeling, then it progresses where it did not let up for an hour straight and I had never experienced anything like it. When I got to the emergency room they did an u/s and saw that I had a cyst rupture that was the size of a ping pong ball. Theres really nothing they could do they gave me a shot of morphine to ease the pain but told me to take motrin when I got home if it persists. Well as soon as it ruptured there was no more pain and no more burning feeling.View Thread
Hello my name is Ashley and my husband and I have been trying to conceive for 2 and a half years now. I was diagnosed with PCOS in July of 2010 I started on Clomid and Metformin. I personnally can not take the Metformin it makes me go to the bathroom alot. I continued to take the 100mg Clomid in July to October of last year where we were blessed with our first pregnancy we lost the baby at 9w3d. They told me to wait 6 weeks to start back on the Clomid. I took 5 more rounds ovulating every time. Just as we were getting ready to go to a specialist to talk about IUI's I found out I was pregnant. I carried that baby to 17w3d and we had a baby girl on September 19th 2011. I'm supposed to wait now 3 months before they let me take the Clomid again. I myself am a firm believer of Clomid and you ovulating every time is a great sign. I've read tons of blogs of people who it did not help at all. If you are ovulating maybe give it a few rounds. Ask them to give you an U/S so you can see if maybe there are cysts blocking the follicles. I had a cyst rupture on May17th of this year I was in the ER and on May21st on had my period took my Clomid and got pregnant that cycle. I hope this helps. I know how it sounds some people thinking cause you have one child already. I'm not judgmental at all. I really do believe that you are grateful for the one child. But when your heartaches for another baby, another life you help create. You can't help feel the way you do. Please stay positive and remember other people out there are feeling the same way, and you are not alone.View Thread
