For those who have taken Femara, what was your period like after a cycle of it? I took it for the first time on my last cycle. I'm now on CD 2 and having a slightly heavier than normal period -- but with TONS of clots. They are about a quarter size, maybe slightly larger. I had a few yesterday and several today. Its totally freaking me out.....If you have taken Femara please help me out!

I have never been on Femara, but if it gave you a nice thick fluffy lining, AF could definitely be heavier and different than usual. It might be miserable and freaky, but it is probably a good thing

I'm no help, my only femara cycle ended in a bfp then miscarriage, so my period wasn't anything like normal.

I haven't taken it but I've seen lots of people write about having clots after Femara so if you're experiencing that, it's normal it seems. It was initially a breast cancer drug and so it effects estrogen, which is the positive part, but also causes a thicker lining, which is also good of course, but then the clots can happen.

It also means that if you notice it, you may want to ask about doing aspirin next time in case you get a BFP and don't want to worry about clots and issues from those in the uterus. So, weirdly enough, it's a good sign you saw it this cycle because it could help keep you pregnant next time. It's not a clotting issue on your end, so you wouldn't need lovenox (unless you haven't been tested for that). but it's just how you respond to Femara. Normal, but good to know that aspirin could help decrease issues with a pregnancy
tiffany&co. and KMH like this.
