Femara cycle length

Common Questions and Answers about Femara cycle length

femara

Hi, I have been prescibed clomid for days 2-6 and am wondering if anyone has experience on how it would affect cycle length? I am expecting a 29 day cycle ( I am charting) this month without clomid. This is my first post and I hope I'm posting in the right place. If anyone can help I'd really appreciate it.
com/docs/PILetrosol.pdf Also, any updates from those of you using Femara? My first cycle resulted in ovulation, but no BFP. :( I'm now on cd 9, so hopefully it will work this time! To jnitro26: I saw that you are also in your 2nd Femara cycle. How is it going? To HeathJo: How is your 2ww going? SSBD to you!!! To G_S: Here's hoping everything is OK and that you get your BFP! To bny807: Best of luck with your ultrasound today. If there is some endo, I'm sure it will be treatable.
I took Femara last cycle, but alas AF came. What was odd was that I had several days of very light spotting before actual flow, usually when I see spotting AF comes the next day. If I count my first day of real flow as day 1, my cycle ran 30 days this time (its usually never more than 28 days). Has anyone else seen these kind of changes after a Femara cycle? I also noticed a slight twinge on my right side for those few days. I'm starting Femara again this cycle, this time with IUI.
Probably I feel a bit stressed due to the anticipation in the TTC phase, you know what I mean. Can I ask you , with Femara was your cycle length and O day affected ? I'm also charting and realised that probably i am Ovulating on CD11.What about you, did the u/s reveal something similar?
I didn't o and the egg is having a hard time busting out. Or, I did o and another egg is being released? I know they say when two or more eggs are released it is so close together tests won't show two separate events. But, as we all know there is an exception (or two) to every rule. I work at the Post Office today, so no daytime internet. I really would like to hear from everyone. Especially, Heather, Trish, Helen and other bbt ladies.
I have been off bc for 7 years and have an average cycle length of 28-29 days. I had a hsg test done and that was clear and good. I was on clomid for 3 months and had u/s that showed good size follicles and had a progesterone test done along with opk tests for months that all pointed to me ovulating. I am now going to an re who had me start femara with ovidril cd 3-5. I got the 250mg shot on cd 15 with 2 mature follicles and thick lining. RE was happy with the u/s.

) Where are you at in your 2ww? I just had my iui this morning, so tomorrow i will be 1dpiui.
I'm gonna have to work on that one. But I would need everybodies average cycle length and average O date, I think? So tonight driving home I was thinking about what if we didn't have this forum? What would our DH's or DF's do with our constant chit chat of TTC, OPK's, HPT's, AF and off topics? What if we told them as much as we tell each other, as often? Then I imagined them having their own forum - "DH of a TTC Wife". What craziness would the DH's tell each other.
What was your typical cycle length before your loss? Jenn - YAY - glad to see you back and welcome once again to the NECOT! Lori and princessa - fingers and toes tripled crossed!!!
CD6, natural cycle mrspace: CD6, clomid cycle Quinns momma: CD5, clomid cycle bfromthed: CD1, baseline sono on Tuesday babylessinflorida: IVF cycle, will start lupron on January 9 Ingy: Starting FET cycle in January kmcarino: Starting new cycle beginning of January
Steph_b - DH and I both take a Geritol Complete and 800 mcg of Folic Acid daily. I didn't take EPO this cycle because of the Femara, but did try the grapefruit juice thing. I'll most likely be doing the same routine next cycle as well. I decided to stop temping for this cycle. I'm just going to let the TWW play out and not stress over staring at my temps.
) I O'd on cd18 last cycle, which this cycle would be Mon. July 7. So, my doc would have me come in for u/s cd 15-17, which turns out to be July 4-6 (a holiday, followed by a weekend!) My doc's office is closed. Oh, well ! :) leighanne & Arlotheslug: Yes, last night was fun :) We hung out till 11:00 & I was SO tired ! The clomid seems to make me extra sleepy.
tracker and tell me what you think. So... I am just curious about when you all ovulate and what the normal cycle length for you all?
) Any volunteers?
Just wanted to start new thread for anyone beginning IVF cycle during the month of November :)
Hi. I'm also on my 2nd cycle with Letrozole (also known by the brand name Femara). Clomid didn't work for me, but I've heard and read a lot of good things about the Femara, so here's hoping it's the answer for us! If you are interested, there is a separate post out there called "Femara Info" where there is a link to a really good resource about the drug related to infertility. A bunch of us on Femara have been sharing some of our stories. Good luck to you!!
You should start checkin day 10 depending on you cycle length.
I just wanted to make sure, i thought it was a little strange but i guess i'm just having a weird cycle. Anyway, i just wanted to tell all of you what a great support system you have all been, but i think i need a break from this site. I'm sorry, i don't want to offend anyone, but this site gets me too excited and then i just get let down every time.
Again no side effects. I did notice that my BBT is higher this cycle than last (non-clomid cycle). I'm hoping to get my OPK today, too. Oh and as a side note, we have been ttc since end of 2006 and just took a break during 2009.
So it seems like the Femara maybe did help regulate you and give you a more normal cycle length. Your cycle was about 30 or 31 days total then right? If so, luteal phases usually range from about 10 to 14 days, so you probably O'd that many days ago. Typically, OBGYN's don't do as much monitoring as a specialist, so that's probably why yours didn't suggest any u/s. My OBGYN was the same way with me. I didn't realize most people have u/s with meds until I found this forum.
i wouldn't worry too much if it's just a few days different. sometimes your cycle changes or you o later in cycle than usual.
Just curious if there are telltale signs beyond tests from the doc (I am waiting for test results and obsessing a bit in the meantime). I get positive OPKs every cycle, never miss a period, get ovulation pains, EWCM every cycle, charted my temps for two months and it showed the normal rising of temps after the + OPK and then dropping with my period.
i have used both clomid and femara, prescribed by my RE. i didn't get pg, but he felt femara to be a better drug.
lol now is a different story =) I just seen my RE yesterday he says to bd the 12, 14, 16, 18th of your cycle days! to cover your basis.. he also gave me femara. I know alot of women here have used clomid! they both get your cycle regular and ovulate better so he says! He also said that the assure opk is the best one ...little expensive but he says it works, if you use that one he says to bd day of the blue line and day after!. Your are supposed to 0 ...12-48 hours after the peak!
I would recommend you to do BBTs if you have a inconsistent cycle length and not sure about Oing.That helped me to find out when I Oed. An other option is Fertility monitor, but it is an expensive option though.
Yes in fact I took letrozole last April. I did ONE cycle with ultrasound monitoring of the follicle and an HCG trigger when the follie was ripe and got pregnant on the first try!!!!!! (I never did try clomid, this was my first cycle with any "help"). And in fact I am going in TOMORROW for a c-section and birth of the baby!!!! Letrozole is like clomid but works in a different way, therefore even if clomid did not work for you letrozole could.
She then suggested a different drug called Femara (Letrozole). Like Clomid, it also tricks your body into producing more estrogen to induce ovulation, but in a different way. There are a lot of good posts on here that give more detailed info on it. The one thing that scares everyone at first is the published risk of birth defects, but it is only if you take it while already pregnant.
