Postby joedanyel » Mon Feb 08, 2016 7:42 pm

Hey joe! Clomid didn't work for me much (apparently I am Clomid resistent), but femara did the trick. It has a lower chance of multiple follicles than Clomid, but it tends to produce one good quality egg in a cycle and doesn't thin out your lining. I took it for 3 months with an IUI for 2 months and was successful! Otherwise, taking lots of vitamins, but I have no clue if it helped! Good luck! :)

Yes I took Letrazole.. same as Femara
I am 12dpiui.. starting to jave mild cramping. I tested on days 10 and 11 both were faint positive lines. So faint that I had to have my husband confirm I wasn't seeing things. Now I'm overly excited and afraid to test because my blood work is wed. Goodluck

Femara/Letrazole has been great for me so far. I got a BFP with my first IUI (DD born 1/15), we're trying again for baby #2 same dose of everything. First IUI didn't work but we're trying again this month for round two.

Mrs. Stacy with DD I got my BFP at 12 DPIUI :) I'd say you're in the clear!

Well im feeling up in the air again. I went and bought digital test and took it this afternoon. Bfn.... I am hoping that it's because it wasn't a morning urine like the other two.. either way I'll have to accept it but holy moly two weeks feels like a lifetime!

those take so much HCG to pull up the reading. at 10/11 dpiui you're still super early. not even 4 weeks pregnant yet. if you must test i'd keep doing line tests, same brand as before and watch the progression.

I am at the end of a round and will be starting a new one! I can't tell you how many femara rounds I've done, I've stopped keeping track. I also trigger with ovidrel . I just had a laperascopy, and a hysterscopy done 3/1/16. Lots of issues fixed that were causing our infertility!! What about you?

I am on my second round of letrozole. First round produced too many follies, and they advised us to wait. So this time looked much better. Did the trigger shot on Thursday, May 12 - DTD that night, May 13, and May 14. Might again tonight for luck, but I started progesterone supplements yesterday so it's kinda icky.

Hello,

I am a long time stalker of this site and figured it is time to join in and maybe get some support. A little about me....I am 34 DH is 40. We have been married for almost 11 yrs together for 16. I have PCOS and have been off BC of any kind for 11 yrs, we were just "seeing what happens" and tried Vitex but with no luck. In December we decided to really try with help of doctors. THey started me on metformin and I started my first round of Letrozole in January. I am currently on round 3 of Let, CD 10. I am really hoping this round is our time because my doc told me if this round doesn't work we will have to discuss next steps, which freaks me out. I guess I am just looking for a little hope....
