Has anyone tried Femera and if so any side effects/ have you gotten pg off of it? Next cycle we are trying that since we have tried 3 cycles of clomid unsuccessfully. Thank you in advance.

I tried Femara once and had no s/e, but that's probably because I did not respond to it at all.....I had no follie growth whatsoever......Clomid is the only thing that makes me O......but I'm an oddball, so I'm sure you'll have better luck than me =)

Clomid did make me O but my lining was very thin and I had horrible side effects from it including large painful cysts. I am also on Metformin for my PCOS.

I'm on Metformin as well =) Well, not currently as we are moving on with adoption, but I was.....I took prednisone with my Clomid and it really lessened the effects and my lining was actually 6.5.....it's never been that thick except for my IVF cycle, and even then it was only 9.....GOOD LUCK

I too tried femara once and had no luck with it. I know that some of our Grads out there had success with femara, so hopefully they will pop in here to give you some hope!

I took femara and it worked for me but I also ovulate regularly. The only thing I remember is being really tired for the first couple of nights after taking it.

I was on 2.5mg Femara for 2 cycles. I O on my own, so the goal was to give me better quality eggies. I didn't have any side effects from it, except a headache the first time around. It did make my CM non existent though . I did not conceive on the 2 cycles that I was using it, but did get my BFP the cycle right after it (when I took a break). I think it was making my eggies mature much faster before the LH surge and then they were too mature plus no CM. I have heard of success stories though. Good luck Shortcake - I hope it works for you!!!!

I tried femara with my IUI cycle, and had only one follicle. It didn't work for us, but I liked that the femara had barely any side effects. Best of luck to you! I hope this is all you need!
