Femara SOS. AF CD21?

Postby dmb521 » Sun Mar 15, 2015 5:50 pm

I took Provera to induce my cycle, took Femara (5 mg) for the first time days 3-7. I did OPKs starting at CD12, never had a positive, and at CD 20-21 have started bleeding/cramping. I'm not temping, so not sure if I could have O'd early or if this is some kind of breakthrough bleeding. Do I treat this as a new cycle and start another dose of Femara? Calling the OBGYN tomorrow... So confused. Has anyone experienced this or have a guess at what is going on?

I just had my first cycle on letrozole (femara). I spotted on cd 18, 19, and 20. I was a little worried about it but after reading your post, perhaps this is a side effect?

Hi dmb, is your bleeding/cramping enough to be considered AF or are you spotting? Perhaps this is ovulation, or it could very well be implantation. Were you using OPK's once daily or twice? Sometimes testing once a day you can miss your surge and think you never ovulated. Hopefully your doctor can give you some answers!
