Famera or chlomid

Postby KellieA6 » Sun Dec 25, 2016 10:03 pm

Which has worked out better?? Chlomid or famera? I ovulate on my own for the most part but didn't ovulate this past month. Trying to figure out which one seems to help more if I were to try it out.

My doctor just prescribed me Femara and according to him it has a slightly higher success rate. It also has less side effects than Clomid.I also O on my own and the Dr is hoping that the Femara will give me a stronger O. I'm waiting for my AF to arrive so I can start taking it. Good luck to you!

I'm wondering the same thing. My dr is starting me out on 3 rounds of clomid upping the dosage each month if the previous doesn't work. I ovulate for the most part on my own but it's not a strong ovulation according to my temps. Dr thinks it will help with egg quality as well. I'm currently in my first clomid cycle. I didn't ovulate until day 25/26 though so I don't think I responded well. If the 3 clomid rounds don't work my dr is switching me to femara. I'm 36 and we've been ttc for 16 months.

Hi Mommaof4,

My doctor didn't even bother with Clomid, because he believes the Femara will work better. Again, I also ovulate on my own but I have mild PCOS and he believes it will give me a stronger O with better egg quality since I'm 36 and time is of the essence. I'm on CD 3 today and I will be taking my first pill tonight. (2.5mg) We are also doing timed intercourse on CDs 10,12,14,and 16.I'm also taking metformin 500mg and doing OPKs. If the next 3 months are unsuccessful he'll be increasing the dose to 5mg. I will let you know how everything is going along the way if you'd like! Good luck to you!
