Clomid, Femara or injectable's?

Postby 10thtimearound » Thu Apr 11, 2013 4:17 pm

Is anyone else using any fertility meds? I have posted on the clomid/Femara board but most of the gals are young and there issues are not related to age like mine are lol. Has anyone done any of the above over 40 with success? My RE is optimistic so that gives me hope!

Not taking anything... but curious to hear what others are doing. Good to learn in case we decide to go that route.

I am taking clomid, 50 mg CD 5-9... just finished round 2.. I was not monitored with ultrasounds prior so unsure how much it is helping except last month I did have 4 follicles, 1 was 2.9, 1 was 1.3 and 2 small... and I can see a BIG improvement in my AF, nice strong solid AF.... MY OBGYN told me take clomid CD 3-7 for more eggs, and take it from CD 5-9 for bigger eggs, so I assume that since my AF is better the clomid is giving me bigger eggs...

My Af was horrid and terrible clotty and heavy but I read that is atypical side effects and I am on 100mg. I have read the same about the Follie verses size based on days taken and. My Re wants more follies looking for that Golden egg!
