[quote=ElleJay]Hopeful0093 - What are the benefits of Femara as opposed to Clomid? Especially since Clomid made you ovulate. Just wondering why the switch (is it just because you can’t do more than 6 cycles of Clomid?) and why not injectables? Thinking about it since I don’t think I’ll be taking Clomid again next cycle.
I’ve already accepted that Clomid failed and isn’t for me. The fact that I never got a positive OPK or a BBT increase seems telling to me. I’m just ready to move on and see to what’s next. I’ll be very shocked if my progesterone level is over 15.[/quote]
I am trying out Femara because yes, my Dr only allows 6 cycles on Clomid because of long term effects and because it caused me to develop cysts. Plus the side effects were miserable for me! Femara is supposed to be a lot less invasive, from what I have read anyway. I ovulate on my own so I am not sure what the problem is there but we want to try this since we are planning to do another IUI at the end of June and since it costs a lot of $ for us this ups our odds of making sure I ovulate I will keep you all updated on the side effects (starting the pills tomorrow). My Dr didn’t even mention injectibles… Not sure why?
