Can anyone tell me the way they felt on the fermara and what about when I take the trigger shot? Help!

The only side effect I had was spotting which was weird and bright red. Other than that I wasn't a raving lunatic or anything. :)

From what others have told me the Letrozole can give you headaches and hot flashes. Im not sure what the trigger shot makes you feel like. Is that when you spotted?

The trigger didn't make me feel anything. I took Femara days 3-7. It didn't necessarily make my cycle longer, but I spotted the bright red near the end of my cycle so the first time was mid-Femara and the second time was on cd7.

Hi there,
I didn't have any side effects on Femara. I did on Clomid - emotional, grumpy, headaches I think but so far I have found femara to be fine. I have used various trigger shots with IVF cycles and don't recall any side effects other than what I was experiencing through the IVF process - tender and uncomfortable ovaries resulting in having lots of mature follicles.

This cycle I had 3 mature follicles with femur, I only ever got up to 2 with climbed. Good luck x
