Start Femara June 18??

Postby abbylu927 » Wed Jun 18, 2014 1:55 pm

Just wondering if I have any friends out there that just started a round of Femara today, the 18th? If so, how many cycles have you done it? Any side effects? Any previous pregnancies from using Femara?

Hi Abbylu, I didn't want to read and run. This was my first month on Femara 5mg, take on days 4-8. I took Clomid last year had no side effects but also had no success either. Found my new doc who put me on Femara for 3 cycles before we move onto IUI. With Femara 5mg I totally had side effects of being nauseous. AF is due today and she hasn't shown up yet. Of course I hoping she doesn't at all!! What dosage are you taking?

Thanks for responding Joshsmom! I too was on clomid. I was on it for two cycles, got pregnant and miscarried at 8 weeks. AF was no where to be found after that so I had multiple tests done. I ended up having a lot of large cysts on my ovaries, polyps in my uterus,a good amount of endometriosis, and some scarring from the mc. I had a full d&c 3 weeks ago. My mc was in March so I feel like I've wasted a few months and that's always discouraging. I am on 5mg of femara days 3-7. Like clomid,I haven't noticed any side effects, thank goodness. I can't find a lot of information on femara so I thought I'd give this a try! I hope it works.

That's awesome about AF! Hopefully she doesn't show her ugly face! When are you going to test? Keep me updated, I an quite interested. :) I hope it works out for you!!

I am so sorry to hear about your mc and d&c. :hugs: That is so hard to go through and must have been very painful. I have lot of hope for Femara though. Hoping it works for you as well!

Unfortunately, the wicked witch showed up bright and early this morning at 7am. A day late even!!! The nerve of her. I wasn't going to test until Saturday but still very disappointed to say the least. So, onto the next cycle. I will start Femara on Monday night. Until then, I will thoroughly enjoy many glasses of wine this weekend.

Here's to our next femara cycle. May they bring us our little bundles of joy. Cheers!

I have taken Fermara for three cycles I found my periods were right on time. As for side effect, I found myself to be very hungry while taking the medication but it subdued when I stopped. I hope you have luck with it!

Hi Abby! I started femara around the same time as you this month. I have zero side effects on it. Before femara, I tried clomid x4 and it had terrible side effects and made AF 4 days late every month. This is my 3rd month on Femara. I got pregnant my 2nd month but it was ectopic so I am hoping this month will work but actually be viable! Good luck!!
