SO... I'm curious to see how this medicine is going to react with my body. My doctor baisically let me choose when I wanted to take the meds. He said it's like Ford's and Chevys- everyone has their own specific prefrence... some people say that taking on day 3 is best, and some say day 5 is best... SO dh had me pick a number between 1 and... 2. HAHA I picked 2. SO here I am taking it on cd 3.
We had a LOVELY day at Silver creek falls today. Hiked all over the place and took lots of pictures of the beautiful waterfalls, It was SO fun!!! Anyways, that's what's new with me... I will let you know what the side effects and stuff are like, since, i don't think anyone else on here has ever used this med.
Talk to y'all later
<>< Melissa

Tamoxifen is like Femera,its normally used in women with breast cancer,its an anti-estrogen.Femera has worked for lots of women
From what I know,the side effects of treatments like this are similar to those of manopause (hot flashes,vaginal discharge,irregular menstrual periods,headaches,fatigue,nausea and/or vomiting, vaginal dryness or itching,irritation of the skin around the vagina,skin rash etc) but not all women get them.
I really hope it works for you! Good luck!

Hey! Thanks so much for checking in on me!! Very sweet! I am doing very well right now. Not nearly as many hot flashes as I had with the clomid- some mild head aches, but other than that, no real s/e!!! WOO HOO!!! I'm not holding my breath though, I know it could get worst, i'm just praying it won't. I will go in June 15th for my progesterone blood work to verify if the medication served it's purpose in helping me ovulate. I'm almost done with my period, so baby dancing time is soon approaching!!! WOO HOOOOOO!!! I think we are going to try bding only every other day because dh has kind of a low volume of semen. When he was younger he had an undescended testicle, which he had to have surgery on when he was eight. So it's possible that we may only be working with one... Which is fine, but we may have to limit our bd'ing to every other day so that have a chance to refill
Anyways, that's my news! Hope everyone else is doing well also!! Love you all!!!
<>< Melissa
