Common Questions and Answers about Femara and cramps

femara

I had few side affects while taking it last month, but post ovulation (if the opk was correct) I cramped a lot 5 days post ovulation and my period cramps were awful too. Anyways I'm taking it days 3-7 and hoping this month it works. I ovulated (again if kit was right) day 11.
well i have sore bb's and cramps, and i have been really hungry, which i am like this before af all the time. i have had so many tests taken, and they cant find anything wrong, except i wasnt o'ing on my own. and me and my dh never tried to prevent getting pg, so its been 4 years and still not pg. and its starting to get frustrating. i guess its becasue i dont undertand why, i have had 2 m/c and 1 ectopic and that was 5 years ago, havent be able to get pg since then.
I used to opk but it was not showing a surge yet, so I will just be testing everyday and waiting to see it. I have never made follies before on my own so i know the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>femara</span> worked and that is very promising! How is everyone else doing?
hey - i am cd 10. i took <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>femara</span> cd 3 - 7. i am having some pretty bad cramps, kinda feels like right before af comes. anyone had these symptoms before? i am having an increase of cm - but it isn't eggwhite or stretchy yet. i don't go until thursday for a follicle check...but starting to get a little worried. i did take an opk and it was very negative. any ideas?
Anyway, I've been waking up with rather severe tummyaches and intestinal cramps and also getting massive headaches (borderline migraines) in the afternoon.... Could this be due to the femara?
That being said... I was only on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>femara</span> one cycle and I never ovulated. I had a 49ish day cycle and then I finally started. Clomid has always worked for me...we use preseed for the dryness. As far as symptoms, I had some pretty bad headaches and hot flashes but other than that I don't remember any mood swings like I have on Clomid. I also don't remember any cramping...course I didn't ovulate and that is usually when I get my cramps. Good Luck!
I did have cramping about 5 days after the IUI and my bb's were sore and heavy. Hopefully your cramps are implantation! Good luck! Keep us posted!
I have felt cramps on and off for about 1 week now too. Anyone else similar or have a good story?
I have been having menstrual type cramps and even some lower back aches for a couple of days now. I have done Clomid several times and never experienced any side effects. I'm hoping this is a good sign! Anyone experience this on femara? Or has anyone not O'ed on 2.5mg but been successful at 5mg?
It sounds like the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>femara</span> is doing so well for you! Congrats. I have taken both Clomid and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>femara</span> too and I felt much better on the femara. It did give me terrible headaches though too. Sounds like you timed your BD perfectly, so hopefully everything works out for you. Good luck!
Hello Ladies. I had my IUI on 2/27, I started having AF like cramps 3/07 and still have them today. It is on and off. Did anyone experience implantation cramps before.
It was brown and pink very light bleeding. That carried on for four days and then the pink stopped and it was light brown spotting, like only when I wiped. I had labs done and it was negative but I have never missed a period in my life. It's always been super heavy, passing tissue and the cramps are out of this world painful. Has anyone experienced this? I've read a lot online that femara is known for making women bleed heavier but nothing close to what I'm experiencing.
i only transfered 1 five day blast and im 11weeks preggo! i had some mild cramps about 4 day after the transfer and i started doing hpt at 5 dp transfer. it was + and got darker every day! how many days past transfer are you and are you going to test with htp? i could not stand it. a girl that i met at my clinic and she did the same as me on the same days as me did not test + till 2 days before beta. let me know.
I have felt cramps on and off for about 1 week now too. Anyone else similar or have a good story?
Hi, I am 9dpo, second cycle of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>femara</span> and I'm having ewcm with cramps! why would i be having this? I read about a secondary estrogen surge but i'm really interested if any women experienced this and then got a bfp.. if you'd like to see my chart heres a link - http://***********************/home/a1af1 thanks!
For years i would complain to my primary dr and obgyn about fatigue, body aches, horrible cramps and backaches during AF, backaches even without AF....and a whole bunch of other symptoms. Long story short, I just had a Lap done in August. They found severe endo. My bowel fused to my uterus, my left ovary/tube are both ruined/covered in endo..cannot move so basically useless. My right tube is 25% fused to my uterus.
Today I have the same symptoms, taste, thirst and cramps but with some spotting. Has anyone had every these symptoms and got a BFP?
but he told me to take the Clomid anyway....so I took it and on the 4 day of it I has such intense cramps that I was terrified...and then they went away...well yesterday (which was 4 days after my last Clomid (150mgs) I started my period. The weird thing is that the day before yesterday I took a ovulation test and it showed I was ovulating. I am really confused and I am hoping that someone else can give me a little help with all of this. I would love to hear anyones feed back.
That totally makes sense. I've had a lap.5 times for endo. It causes bad cramps, and painful intercoarse. I've had to take lortab for the cramps during my periods. I was even told i wouldn't ever conceive. I'm preg for the 2nd time. I didn't have the first one until i was 32 though. Tried for a long time b4 that. Have you ever used a ovulation predictor test?
C was also a week early and lasted 9 days, ive had all the symptoms of being pregnant but today i woke up and bamm i had bad cramps and bleeding but M.C isnt due for a few days.....so im upset and not sure wut to do now im beginning to think theres something wrong with me being able to conceive again!!!Should i take a test or go to my Doctor and see wuts going on with my body???
If you do take Tamoxifen and have problems with leg cramps and muscle/joint aches, I found that exercise helps immensely to eliminate the cramps and greatly reduce the aches.
I had normal menstrual bleeding Days 1-4, had spotting days 5-12, and now for the past 2 days I have had bleeding and cramps. I called my obgyn office and spoke to the nurse. She relayed the message to the doctor and told me to, "Count today as cycle day 2 and start the clomid on day 5." I explained my concern that I just finished my clomid 5 days ago and that I'm only on CD 14. She repeated herself again and told me to start the clomid as directed.
Cd2 and 1st day of 2nd round <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>femara</span>. So far so good. No s/e last round and nothing so far this one. Different af this cycle. I haven't gotten cramps since I was in my late teens. This cycle is wretched! Maybe is to do with femara, I don't know. Anyway, went to beach today and got a little color. Spring breakers are all gone and it's my beach again. Going to Universal in the am w/sister and her kids. Tim and I do love the parks. Rollercoasters, junk food and beer and sunshine.
My doctor has put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>femara</span>(letrozole) and said that since i would be having the lap on cd 7 so i can try from cd 12-14 as this month my chances of conceiving would be higher.I am a bit nervous about the procedure though my doc says there is nothing to worry about.She would perform the procedures with general anesthasia.Plz share your experiences with the HSG and laparoscopy so that i have a fair idea before i go for it.
I had a few ultrasounds done when I was on Clomid and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>femara</span> and didn't have any cysts then, but maybe something has changed since then.
tight feeling some times Oing = cramps on and off CD22 and on = cramps on and off, most cycles, tight feeligng some times 2 to 3 days before AF = PRESSURE 1 day before AF = painful bowel movements Sometimes druing the cycle, BDing can be a little painful if "deep" I usually have a Cyst that ALWAYS goes away on its own, and it can be on either side. All my DH's test and my Test are "clean" and normal, except for the CA125 which is elevated...
Last cycle I did 50mg of Clomid and had abnormal bleeding so had to move to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>femara</span> and I am happy to say I responded to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>femara</span> with no side effects! I plan on testing on 10 dpo (Feb 1st)! So anyone else waiting to test please comment below! Its going to be a long two weeks but we can do it!!!!
The injectibles cost us thousands of dollars while Clomid cost like 30 (until I found it at ivfmeds.com and then it was even cheaper). My friend who is in her mid 40s is being tried on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>femara</span>, which is also cheaper than the injectibles.
