2 rounds of femara in 1 cycle?

Postby goody5 » Wed Oct 08, 2014 4:19 pm

I took 2.5 mg of Femara CD 2-7. I went for my US blood work on CD 12. My lining was only 4.8, I had two measurable Follies that measured 8 and 10mm. Went back for another US on CD 15(my normal ovulation day) my lining was now a 7, but I had no growth in follies and said my blood dots showed ovulation was not even close. Now the RE wants me to do another round of femara but 5mg instead. The weird thing is she wants me to take it now, starting CD 15. Is this weird? Has anyone else had to take it twice? So my cycle will be much longer than normal. I'm really confused.

So I just had to do the same thing with clomid. However I am doing it without monitoring. I am cd 30, but I was supposed to take the clomid on day 21, pretending like that was my day 3 (my progesterone was checked to confirm lack of ovulation at .38)
Here is hoping it works! I hope it worked for you and I am reassured by reading your post!

Thanks for the reply and good luck! The two rounds of fermara in one cycle didn't work, they upped it to 5 mg and after my 2nd IUI with the 5 mg and ovidrel I got pregnant! I'm currently 5 weeks :)
