Will Femara help with recurrent miscarriages ?

Postby MissClaire » Sun Mar 22, 2015 6:12 am

Hi Ladies !
Thanks in advance to anyone reading this - I'd be so grateful for your replies with experiences etc...
has anyone been successful with Femara after miscarriages ?
After a year of TTC and 2 early miscarriages, we're going on Femara to 'shorten my cycle and improve egg quality'
We are waiting on the results from a full recurrent pregnancy loss workup...
everything else is perfect - lots of eggs, great hormone panel, uterine lining is always thick and trilaminar at time of IUIs, no luteal phase issues, etc etc...
we're so sad and frustrated and scared - hoping the testing doesn't come back with some scary genetic issues that means we'll never be parents : (
TTC since 2013 - IUIs with donor sperm
17 IUIs - Femara / Ovidrel / Progesterone
4 miscarriages...
Oct 15/15 BFP 12dpo beta 32 - 14dpo beta 98 *stick! Pls stick*

Just wanted to get an update from you - how's your journey coming along? I just had my third (second recurrent) loss and my OB is thinking Clomid or Femara next cycle so I'm curious on this as well.

I am on femara for recurrent miscarriage. This is my first cycle taking it with a trigger. I tried it on it's own last year but my prolactin was elevated and femera + elevated prolactin made my cycle longer. Fixed prolactin with bromocriptine and shortened my cycles :D now I am hoping the femara strengthens my ovulation and hormones.
