This is my 2nd cycle with femera. 1st cycle I barely had 1 mature follicle on my cd 15 scan. It was a bfn. I was on the lowest dose. They doubled the dose for this cycle and had 3 mature at cd 14. I can test tomorrow. I hope with 3 mature we caught at least 1 egg!

Yes I did 5 this cycle. Also the 1st cycle I took it cd 5-9. This cycle I took it 3-7. Idk if the days I took it made the difference or what. My scan on cd 14 without meds seemed normal, but still enough evidence leads to a LPD.

Thanks - good luck to you too! Your scan sound promising to me!

I did one cycle of femara 5mg days 5-10. I had one 22mm follie on cd 17, triggered in my RE's office that day and got my BFP! Clomid only gave me tons of ovarian cysts, but femara worked great! Good luck!

I do femara 5mg /day on CD3-7. THis is my 6th cycle. I always have 4-5 large follicles. Last month for my IUI I had 5 follicles sizes 17mm-24mm. It didn't work though.
