I had a reevaluation appointment yesterday with our RE after 7 failed rounds of Clomid, 3 with IUI. I O just fine naturally, just late and I have endometriosis. So they took some blood to double check my prolactin and thyroid levels (symptoms of hypo and it’s common with endo). Still haven’t heard back on the results, but my RE decided to let me try 3 rounds of Femara with timed intercourse alone before we add in injectables. We can’t start any medicated cycles again until February because it’s too late this month and DH will be out of town during O next month.
Anyway, I was prescribed 5 mg. Is that high for someone who naturally ovulates? All of the women I know who had O issues only tried 2.5 mg. My RE warned me I should only expect to get 1 follicle each cycle, does the dose generally correlate to the number of follicles? It’s also not covered at all by insurance (double checked) and I’ve heard it can get pricey. I even emailed the company who makes Femara to see if they were offering discounts to help make it more affordable and they said no. Which pharmacy did you use and how much did you pay? I don’t want to be shocked when I have to fork out tons of money!
