We had our first post femara ultrasound today, and she didn't tell me how many follies I had (I think there were 3?) but she said "they" measured 11.5mm (today is cd10) so they did bloodwork and sent me on my way. Later the nurse called and said my next scan will be Monday morning at 645 and if I haven't made "good" progress dr wants me to co suede a couple days of Injectibles.

11.mm seems okay IMO on cd10? I don't know why this dr is so insistent on me doing injectibles after only 1 failed cycle. Can't I technically do a couple days of femara in hopes of the same outcome? What do you think about the size? I should want them to be about 17 by Monday, right? What are your thoughts on all of this?

I'm not sure on follies size. But if you don't feel that injectables is right, Let them know. Easier said than done. I'm a baby when it comes to confrontation with my medical staff... Lol. Good luck I hope the follies are big fat and ripe on Monday!

I'm not sure about the follicle sizes or how many cycles she will allow you to try on Femara. My OB will only allow me to try 6 cycles on Clomid before referring me to an RE. Good luck to you and hoping for a good scan on Monday.

I believe that they suggested the injectables IF and only if the follicle sizes aren't to their liking because the injectables will help them grow a bit more. It's like a little boost. Not all out injectables, so it wouldn't be as pricey as a full injectable cycle. I wish I had that option.....

I am only doing 3 cycles of femara, and if that doesn't result in pregnancy, then we will move on to something else, likely injectables. I'm in the middle of round 2 of femara now....


Femara tricks your brain to get it to produce more hormones to help your eggs grow, but this doesn't always work in everyone, or as well as hoped. Injectables, on the otherhand, are hormones..so there is no trickery involved and they work better. That is my understanding.

I'm thinking your doc wants to give you something to help those follies mature...but that is just a guess. I hope everything looks great on Monday!

But why is she recommending injectibles right away? Can't you do femara again and try to accomplish the same thing? That's what I'm wondering
