I recently had a follow up appointment with my RE and was sent for an u/s to check for follicles.... nadda. I have not ovulated with 2.5mg OR 5mg of Femara. He said to try 7.5mg this next cycle (currently on Prometrium) and if that doesn't work then I'll be looking at injectables or ivf.
Has anyone else had an experience with Femara not making you ovulate?
He suggested that Clomid probably won't have any effect on me as Femara is often used when Clomid fails to work.
My only hormone that is not within normal range is a high LH as well, and this is why my RE diagnosed me with PCOS. It is nearly impossible to ovulate on your own with an elevated LH.
ideally your LH should be under control with meds, staying nice and low until just before your ovulation, when it spikes. It has to spike to trigger ovulation. If it's always high- it could be damaging to your egg quality and it prevents ovulation.
Clomid almost always helped me ovulate, but I didnt have success until I used injectibles.
I hope that you are able to figure out what combo works for you so you can have your BFP!!
PCOS was thrown around as a diagnosis a few times but given I don't have any other symptoms of it what-so-ever the RE said we'll just say it's something like PCOS but not really because he really doesn't know!
My testosterone levels are within the normal range and my U/S came back with nothing abnormal going on with my ovaries.
What injectables worked for you Melissa? That's looking like it will be the next step for us if this high dose round of Femara doesn't work!
