So, I had my LAP followup appointment today with the RE. He was definitely rushed, but I got the answers I wanted and a plan I'm excited about!

He went over my surgery images and I certainly had some crazy endo going on in there. He said since part of my bowel was connected to my ovary that he is supposed to recommend IVF. He knows we're not ready to jump into that yet, so he has decided to do an Ovulation Induction Cycle. He wanted to do it with Clomid, but last time I did Clomid I did not handle it well. We're going to try Femara and I go in on CD 10 for monitoring. I am so so so excited about this. I've never had a monitored cycle so I'm excited for someone to be watching what's going on in there and I'll finally have confirmation that everything in that area works correctly. We are moving in the right direction and I finally feel like the next cycle will be the first one we've really had a shot at in the past 6 months.

So, anyone been on Femara before? How did it go for you? I hear the side effects are less than Clomid, and I really hope that's the case.

Yay for a great plan! I haven't taken Femara so I'm not able to help out there but I know there are lots of ladies on here who have taken it

Sounds like a great plan! Maybe ask on the TTCMA about the Femara?

It is way better then clomid. I took clomid for a year and it drove me crazy. My last 2 cycles I have been on femara and it is so much better! I still feel like myself which with clomid I had so many mood swings I would cry, laugh...it was scary!! Good luck!

I've taken Clomid and it was fine, but I also know for others that have troubles with it, Femara is a much better option. Yay on finding a plan!! So hope this is all you need to get pg!!

Thanks to *Sharon* for my awesome siggy! My pregnancy blog
