Hello, my name is Veronica. I am getting ready to start Femara. I know it isn't Clomid but from my understanding it is very similar. Anyone on here taking Femara?
Here's a little about myself. I have had PCOS since around 15 or 16. I never had AF's on my own unless on Metformin and/or BCP. For years DH and I never became PG until 9-06. I became PG while on Met. but had a M/C at 6 weeks. I was able to conceive my DS while on Met alone and he is now over 2 1/2. I also had low prog. with both pg's and still have history of low preg.
We have not been TTC for over 6 months and I've not been O'ing. I've been using OPK's and temping. I went to a new dr today and was given Femara. I'm currently on CD 47 I think with no AF so I'm supposed to take Prometrium to induce AF then on CD 3-7 take Femara (2.5 mg) then Estradiol CD 10-12 and Prometrium about 3 days after O. I'm also supposed to go in for an U/S on CD 12 to check my follicles.
I'm very nervous about starting this as I've read some bad side effects of things like Femara/ Clomid. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
I'm looking forward to getting to know you ladies!
