hi girls! just a quick update from today - had to go into the city to get day 2 bloodwork done - was told if i did not get a call by 4 then my levels, FSH and Estradiol are fine; also had a baseline US for this cycle and still have rt ovarian cyst; however, it is not of concern to the RE and it is under a certain mm that is ok; so, i dont have to go on BCP, which, i am so happy to hear; i am starting fertility meds for 1st time; last month i did Ovidrel trigger which did not help w my egg and spermies mating, but, hopefully the Femara , which is waht i am starting today, 5mg x 5 days, will give me extra strong willed eggies; hope u all have a great sat night

not yet, but today is only day 2; what about you? was it your decision to go on or did your doc suggest? i did not want the clomid, as the side effects are supposed to be bad; are you doing an IUI this month?

I've been taking Femara for 5 months. Just makes me unmotivated and emotional. Its tolerable though.

Good luck! I took Femara CD 5-10 and then a trigger shot and got preggo the first cycle! Clomid just gave me tons of cysts but femara was great! I hope you get the same results!
