Hi Toscana! I liked Femara better. I think I had 1 day of hot flashes on that, whereas I had 2-3 weeks per cycle of them on Clomid! And Clomid only ever gave me 1 follie, no matter the dosage, but on Femara I had 2 follies.

The only disadvantage to Femara for me was that Clomid was $10 with insurance regardless of the dosage and Femara, because it has no generic, was like $150 or something. However, on the Femara website there's a coupon to get it for $10, which I unfortunately didn't see until after I'd already gotten mine!

toscana: i personally liked clomid better. i didn't feel like i got as good as a response with femera. but now i'm on tamoxifen which is similar to femera and i'm having good results with that too. (no bfp yet)

good luck!

afm: had my f/u appt today. i will be doing iui #3 on friday. i had 2 follies 15 and 17 (i think). they want me to do 2 more nights of follistim and then trigger on thursday. do you think that's too late? i hope we catch it this time.

hope all is well with everyone!
