    Default Stupid insurance and Femara!!!

    I have a prescription for Femara for next cycle just to get me ovulating stronger and I wanted to have it in hand in case I didn't get pg this cycle. Well it turns out my insurance declined it since it's used for breast cancer patients and because I'm "so young" which i don't know what that has to do with Breast Cancer but anyway... Looks like i"m not getting it at all

    I am praying that I'm pg right now and won't need it but who knows

    I know it's more expensive than clomid if you have to pay oop. Your chart looks ovulatory though. Maybe you don't need it!

    I hope so! my obgyn said she's not convinced i'm not ovulating so she didn't really want to give it to me in the 1st place so maybe that's a sign....

    I think the reason they sometimes won't give it to you because you're "too young" is because it's used in breast cancer only for post menopausal women. They discovered it was a fertility drug because it was making them ovulate...or so I heard anyway. My insurance paid for it but I have Medicare and they typically cover things mostly for people who are on social security so it's one of the few things I've needed that they've covered without question. I hope you're pregnant this cycle and don't need it!
