Femara w/ short follicular phase?

Postby JuniperSage » Thu Sep 24, 2015 10:12 am

I start my first medicated cycle soon (next week!) ... I have 26-27 day cycles and 15-16 days LP. I typically O around CD10. I'm starting Femara CD5-9 with monitoring and trigger shot before IUI. I am afraid I will ovulate early though. Does the Femara help delay ovulation? I'll mention it to my doctor when I call for CD1 to get the RX called in, but thought I'd check here. I see lots of info on luteal phase lengths, but nothing really about FP.

BFN every single month.
9/2015 - HSG all clear, Day 3 FSH 8.6
10/2015 #1 IUI with 5mg femara & trigger - BFN
11/2015 #2 IUI with 5mg femara & trigger - BFN
12/2015 #3 IUI with 7.5mg femara & trigger - sperm count more than doubled! 2 mature follies but lining only 4mm on CD11 a.m. (day of p.m. trigger) .... fingers crossed for lucky #3!
