My husband and I just took a 4 month break from trying. I think the time helped us both tons. I just had my 1st cycle since we started tring again. I had been doing Clomid 100mg and nothing was happening, so this time we did 5mg of femara along with my 500 metformin. I had an U/S on CD16 and much to my surprise, a follicle just over 2cm! I was so excited I couldn't contain myself. Its the 1st one I've had on U/S. On CD18 I got a positive OPK so now we're "busy" I also did days 3-7 and had very little SE, just an occasional headache. Nothing compared to the Clomid! Overall my experience with femara has been good, I hope it works for you...Good Luck!View Thread
well there were again No good big follicles. However there was a pocket of fluid under my uterus which they said happens once you do ovulate, so they think maybe I already did. So hopefully, but who knows. I was doing the O predictor kits and didn't pick anything up. Hopefully your U/S will show more than mine did....Good Luck!View Thread
Yes its my first round of Femara, I tried 6 of clomid and it just didn't work for me this time. With my miscarriage I only did 2 rounds and got pregnant, so I hope thats how it goes for you. This is just perfect, I also started it on day 3 so we are right together! My hotflashes would hit when I least expected them, and I would sweat horribly, mostly when I was at work. I have a good feeling this month...Its going to work for both of us!View Thread
Tonight was my first round of Femara too! Are you taking it days 5-9 or 3-7? I'm excited we're at the same point in our cycles, easier to keep up with eachother this way. I hope you don't have very bad side effects. My main problem with clomid was the Hot Flashes! Good LuckView Thread
I went in on day 12 of my cycle for an US, after being on 100mg of Clomid days 3-7, and there were no follicles that were big enough to ovulate. So that stinks, but we're switching to Femara because I guess the clomid makes follicles, and the femara makes the follicles mature and grow. Hopefully that'll work, I'll have another US on day 12 of the next cycle, so I will let you know what the verdict is. My husband is leaving the end of March and won't be home until July so I'm getting desperate. Fingers Crossed! Good Luck to everyone else too!View Thread
I guess its possible it happened later, although today would be day 28, and I started so maybe its possible i actually did ovulate? I am hoping thats the case and we just drew the level on the wrong day. This time we're doing the "fun" US on day 12 so hopefully that'll give us some new info. I have been wondering if your doc ordered some clomid for you, let us know.View Thread
I'm Sorry. It sucks to get your hopes all up then have them smashed. It gets very discouraging.
I am also very discouraged this morning. I found out my progesterone was only 6.7 on day CD 20. I was sure it was going to be way above 15 because I thought I caught a positvie LH surge with an OPK on day CD 14. Like you, I was feeling very optimistic until I heard the level, then I cried. Why does this have to be so Hard?!?View Thread
