Wednesday is CD 5 and I am going in for an u/s with my OBGYN/RE. She wants me to start Clomid on CD 5.

I've heard Clomid dries you us, thins out uterus lining among other things.

Should I try Fermara over Clomid?

I've tried them both....neither made me ovulate (it's tough to get me to o because I have PCOS). But I must say femara had far less side effects for me. No night sweats, hot flashes, or mood swings like clomid. But each one is different. I think there is a thread with some of the side effects the ladies here have experienced.

Best of luck.

Femara is 100x better than Clomid - it just hasn't gone through quite as much testing so there isn't a lot of doctors willing to use it. It is used a lot in Canada
