Femara and Irregular Bleeding

Postby An0514 » Sat Dec 27, 2014 3:29 pm

Hi Ladies,
Has anyone experienced an irregular period or bleeding after taking Femara? I took it for the first time cd 3-7 and had my normal period for days 1-7 (2 days heavy bleeding, 3 light to normal and 2 light). Then I thought it was gone and got a random dark red bleeding in the afternoon on day 8, afternoon day 9, and late morning today. This has never happened to me in my life. Oh and a positive opk today but only a 14mm follicle when it should be 20+. Feeling confused and frustrated (and tired of doing laundry......)

I would definitely call your doctor. I took femara for 5 months and I actually had a lighter period than normal all 5 months. Sorry I can't be more help. Let me know how you make out.

Yes - I have just experienced bleeding after taking Femara. I took 5mg on cds 3-7, then had an IUI on cd 14. Then on day 19 (5dpo) I started spotting. This bleeding has only just stopped - 15 days later!! Obviously the IUI did not work, but who knows if that was because I started bleeding 5 days after the procedure. My RE figures it was the Femara because everything else was looking really good. I'm not going to take it again, but I'm not yet sure what Plan B is going to be. I have no idea where I am in my cycle now, but I've been bleeding for 15 days and I have no follicles. I get the feeling not too many people have this problem, but it does exist!

Did you end up getting back on track after your experience?
