Femara and repronex

Common Questions and Answers about Femara and repronex

femara

Can I take Repronex and/or femara without using a trigger shot (by tracking ovulation with OPK instead)?
What does the repronex do? And can anyone order it off these websites or do you need a RX? Thanks bunches.....
Can you tell me what femara and repronex are? I am trying to conceive naturally and I will be 43 this year so I will take whatever I think might help. Any advice?
RE read the report and said my endo was not bad enough to worry about any scarring or anything but due to me being over 35 and two failed rounds of Femara, we are starting an injectable called Repronex..it is similar to Menopur. He thinks it is the best for me right now as it is a mix of FSH hormone and HCG?? My RE also asked me to not get my gyn too involved in my fertility stuff as this will complicate things and that is understandable. Gyn is not a complete expert at this stuff.
I'm starting my first femara/menopur cycle today, and was wondering if someone could help me. I'm taking femara on days 3-7, and a 75 IU shot of menopur on days 3, 5 and 7. So today (CD3), I'll be taking both a femara pill and a menopur shot. My question is, do I take them both at the same time (i.e. both in the a.m.)? Or do I take femara in the a.m. and the shot in the p.m.?
Talked to the doc and they want me to order Pergonal to use with Femara. I would take it for 3 days, 225IU each day. Has anyone tried this? I went to order at i v f m e d s . c o m but the shipping is more than the meds!! Anyone know where I could get them in the US for about the same price? It was going to be $87 - sounds cheap to me. Also, are there side effects?
Thank you very much for your response. I also took femara..and then to Repronex (injectables) with 3 iui's. Good luck to you. I think I'll post my results, with the next step in treatment, just in case anyone is going through a similiar work up. Good luck to you on Femara!! Less side effects than Clomid and my RE says it works better for a lot of people.
Well, I've decided to throw everything I have at it this time. Femara 5mg, cd2-cd6, Repronex injections cd7-cd8, and Ovidrel (hcg) injection on cd9 or cd10. Starting robitussin today to help my cm, will use Preseed and then settle in for the 2ww. This was the same protocol that was used 2 years ago (I think I was surging on my own before the IUI as they always did my IUI on cd12 - I usually o on cd11). Wish me luck ladies!!! P.S.
I am new at this and asked about femara here on the forum and couple people responded and said that it worked great either for them or someone they know! I will keep posted on how it works for me!
Hi I did IUI on Saturday and am now doing the dreadful 2WW and I am already feeling discouraged but not defeated. I have PMS signs and it sucks cuz IF and WHEN AF shows up I'm gonna feel like burying my self under my sheets and never waking up. Don't mean to seem negative but today I am feeling prety down. Anyhow good luck to both of us.
Doctor put me all kind of fertility medicine such as Clomid 100mg, Femara, Estradiol, Prometrium, Repronex, Follistim.. We tried and tried and nothing happen. We even tried 2 IUI and not success.. In April the doctor told me take a break and he will perform laparoscopic surgery on 04/17/09. We will try again in June 09. The surgery went fine. Everything inside of me look good inside and nothing stopping me not to conceive... The major factor is my age..
I tried the pill and that didn't work so she said Provera and I told her that my body doesn't respond and she had me skip and and go on Repronex and it worked for me. Well we are in the two week wait right now; hope this helps a little. Good Luck to you!
two miscarriages behind me. I have PCOS. metformin since october 2006. First cycle of femara, hcg trigger and prometrium got me a BFP. Am currently 9 weeks!! Good luck!!
I have been trying to get pregnat for 8 months the first 6 months my doctor put me on clomid and then I started bleeding for a month went to see him and he put me on prevera that didn't work I still bled for another month so I call him and he doubled my dosage well for three days I got so sick and started bleeding heavier. Called him again today and he takes me off prevera and puts me on prempro. I dont understand why he is putting me on all this hormone medication.
So I want to know how many of you ladies have done IUI's and if you have had success, how many attempts etc. I REALLY need to collect info from you ladies!!! Thanks!!!!!
I'm scared what will happen now and I want to wait and see if I O on my own and try on our own with this cycle. But i have no idea what will happen. I'm so confused. Any input?
I'm not doing straight shots, but I'll be trying menopur this month too (first month on injectables). I'll be doing femara days 3-7, and a 75 IU shot of menopur on days 3, 5 and 7. I have my baseline sono this afternoon, and depending on what day my RE considers CD1 (I started AF at night), I'll either be starting today or tomorrow. Hopefully it will work for both of us!!! SSBD!
As for ovulation on clomid/femara, I'm with Helen. On meds, I've been ovulating on CD14 or 15, and without any meds, I usually get a positive OPK on CD12. So I usually start using OPKs on CD10. Best of luck, BabyBlue! I hope you get your +OPK very soon...
She wants to start clomid and I have done some research and would like to know what you guys think og clomid, what your experiences are and any success you've had using it. Please give me your knowledge on this. Thanks.
I am on cd8 today and starting Follistim (150iu) tonight and Monday and Tuesday. Just finished round 4 of Femara cd3-7(2 a day), and will have u/s and Novarel shot (10,000 unit) this Thursday (cd12).
doctor consider I am infertility so she put me on fertility medicines... Clomid or Femara Estrdiol Premotrium Novarel Follistim Repronex.. etc... During one cycle i have to take those infertiltiy medicines... CD 3 - 7 - Clomid CD 8 - 12 - Estradiol CD 3, 5, 7, 9 - Follistim injection or Repronex - CD 13 - have sonogram - if there are mature follicles CD13 or Cd14 - Novarel injection to release eggs CD15 - BD or IUI. I tried all this for 21 months and I got tired...
I'd say that if you had a good sized egg on clomid and didn't have to be bumped up to repronex or another injectable, you're in good shape. Regardless of what your fsh level was, you still produced an egg so it seems like you've got a good shot at it this month! Good luck!
next cycle my dr plans to put me on 150mg Clomid (3-7)+ Repronex injection (CD3, 5, 7, and 9) I don't know if I want to do that or not. I hope you feel better. Here are some link about this medicine http://diabetes.emedtv.com/metformin/metformin-side-effects.html http://health.howstuffworks.com/metformin2.htm http://www.medicinenet.com/metformin-oral/article.htm http://www.webmd.com/drugs/mono-7061-METFORMIN+-+ORAL.aspx?drugid=11285&drugname=Metformin+Oral hope this help you.
) we have been working with a fertility clinic for the last year (clomid, repronex, progesterone, femara, baby aspirin.....and that was just my last cycle!). We have unexplained infertility and I am almost ready to throw in the towel.... will be able to test in another 10 days....8 mature follicles, so let's hope this one sticks. We have had 9 IUI's but nothing has stuck. Has anyone else had this problem? Really hoping for a good news story somewhere.
Congratulations first off and have a happy and healthy 9 months. I took femara this cycle as well 2.5 mg days 3-7. What dosage were you on? And I'm wondering if I should ask my dr about doing the HCG shot. Did you ovulate on your own before you tried the clomid or femara?
I have not yet started any drugs. I was only recently referred to the RE because of my 3 m/cs and my age. I was 39 when I had m/c #2 but it was tricky getting RE referral until #3 which was in February. At my initital consult, my RE felt I was in a "better" situation than most my age because I conceived easily, that I still had a 60-70% chance of carrying to term. At this point, IVF would not really help me. But she does think I need to conceive again ASAP.
Nope - I think I'm the oldest geezer here though (LOL!) I'm trying the femara/repronex/hcg combo again this month, and then it's back to au naturale. I'll post again when I'm in my "new" 2ww .....wish they could put me in a coma for that!!!! I start POAS right away when I get the trigger so I can test it out of my system (and because a positive looks so pretty, even if it isn't real - lol!) SSBD!!!
my RE said that clomid does have a higher rate of m/c so this cycle i was on Femara with a low dose of injectables (Repronex). (i had an IUI done today on day 14 so i'm keeping my fingers crossed that this new protocol worked!) the way it was explained to me was that you do have a somewhat increased risk of multiples being on fertility meds but since the rate of conception is 25% in any given cycle, having two eggs only slightly increases your chance of conception in general.
Update as of 5/15- CD9 Bloodwork came back looking great, on u/s i had 3 folicules 10mm and a ton that werent quite there yet, should be there by saturday, my next appointment, still taking 2 bravelle and 2 menopur (repronex once menopur is gone) and starting ganirelix tomorrow night. so far so good, keep the well wishes and Prayers coming PLEASE!! thanks again fellow TTCers SSBD TO US ALL!!!!!
4 mm after taking 100mg of Clomid and 150 IU of Repronex. Lining was 8.8 mm. So went back for a follow up U/S on CD 18 yesterday and had a 19.9 mm follie and a 17.9 mm follie. But I started testing positive on my OPK's on CD 17 and my temps have now been up for 3 days. My dr gave me an HCG shot at 1pm yesterday and told me I would ovulate around 1 am today. So would I consider tomorrow 1 DPO or Tuesday 1 DPO? I've never had an HCG shot before and I'm really unsure of how it works.
