I have PCOS, so I was switched to Femara. I've had almost zero side effects while on it. Which for me is amazing since clomid was a horrible experience. So here's hoping that everything goes great & after 8 yrs of ttc, I finally get my dream baby!
I was on this drug for 7 months.it did help me ovulate more regularly. I still have no baby...
Did 2.5 last month, no ovulation. Just finished taking 5.0 this month and we will see if that’s was the magical dosage! ✨ no side effects on either dosage.
I would like to hear feed back I’m starting this pill next week 2.5mg? Any one have luck getting pregnant or ovulating?!
Worst week of my life! The pill made me feel so weak I couldn’t go to work at all. I was exhausted like the time I had shingles.( if any of you have ever been through shingles, you’ll know what I mean ) And that wasn’t all. Severe headache, heartburn, lower back ache, General aches all over the body. Too early to comment on it’s effectiveness but it’s not the innocuous little pill everyone seems to say it is.
My gosh, all I can say is never again. this medication made me drowsy, dizzy and so weak for 3 weeks I could barely go to work. The worst part is I didn't even ovulate. Prior to taking this medication, I was ovulating every month.
Today is cycle day 12 and I took a pregnancy test came back negative I hope everything work for me and the hubby we really been trying for a while now
I got pregnant on the 1st try no side effects.
Did 4 cycles with this 3 with trigger shot and 1 I ovulated on my own :) though I did not become pregnant it showed me that pregnancy was a possibility for when we try again I had no side effects from it in fact I feel like it jump started my body to work a little better
Tried clomid for two years with no success and horrible side effects. then finally switch to this and conceived on my second cycle. I have pcos and my son is beautiful and heathy. For some this is the better alternative.
its safe to say that im allergic to this drug i had really bad reaction to it. i was out of work for 2 weeks :( j was really hoping this was the fertility med that might work
Took Femara for five days 50mg and IUI and got BFP! My son is 8.5 months old now. No side effects. And had 3-4 eggs on each side. Took clomid 3 times with IUI and terrible side effects and 3 BFN!!
I have PCOS, and I did 2 rounds of it. No side effects. I ovulated both rounds, and we conceived on our second round! If we ever decide to have another baby, I will definitely be using this again!
I have been taking femara for the last 3 months.. I am hoping after this cycle we will be telling everyone we are pregnant!!
First cycle on it and ultrasound confirmed ovulation. No side effects!
I'm taking this medicine because I'm in a same-sex marriage, and it's just protocol. But the medicine so far has been ok, no negative side effects. Although this is my 5th cycle on letrozole, alot of women get pregnant fairly quick on it.
Just completed round 1 and had so many side effects. Mostly diarrhea every day I was on the meds, but also had achy hips, fatigue, and lots of dizziness. I had a really bad fall from the dizziness and tore a ligament in my foot. But I am ovulating now so hopefully I don't need another round. :/
I have Pof.. a terrible diagnosis. I took Lezra ( Femara ) 3 months but didn't work for me. 😔 I didn't feel any side effect.
How many rounds did you all have to do before you had success? I'm about to start my first round. I ovulated on Clomid 50mg just never conceived.
RE started me on Femara after my first cycle was cancelled due to poor response. I was on it for 5 days total, started it 2 days before injections and it helped boost my follicles. I ended up retrieving 15 mature eggs after 8 days on stims.
I have PCOS and was started on Progesterone first and my body reacted badly to it so i just started my first round of Femara and so far have had no bad side effects besides maybe headaches more then i normally get them. Hoping to have some luck the first go round of it because the more time that goes by the more frustrated we get, which deffinetly doesn't help things.
Good! Helped boost my fertility without side effects
Very effective. I had few side effects, and only one egg developed, which was what we were going for. The cycle before we tried Clomid, and I have 6 eggs developing, so we decided to hold off on that cycle. With the Letrozole, it did exactly what we had hoped, and was able to get pregnant that cycle.
Conceived our first child on the first try using this medication
Extremely effective for those with PCOS
It was effective! It gave me two nature follicles. It also gave me migraines on the days that I took it
It seemed to work. I didn't have any negative side effects.
It's what worked when Clomid didn't
I had absolutely no side effects other than ovulating for the 1st time in my life.
My follicles reacted wonderfully to the dosage of Femara we tried, the first time!
I was not ovulating before taking this medication, and it made me ovulate every month.
It worked great for me. Much better than clomid.
I have no negatives on this medication and
I did not experience any negative side effects from this medication. It was an overall good experience.
Stimulated ovulation well with much fewer side effects than Clomid.
It got me to produce two eggs which ended in a singleton. currently 31.5 weeks! I didn't have many side effects that i can remember.
It was more effective than clomid!
Helped me ovulate early and predictably. Did cause some dizziness, hot flashes
I didn't have my side effects with this medication but also had no positive results.
So far so good!
Effective. Makes me ovulate
Clomid and I did not work well together. Femera and I do work well together, but haven't had a pregnancy yet. Ovidril (trigger shot) does the job, and prometrium also does the job.
The medicine did what it was supposed to but I was still unable to become pregnant during the treatment for unknown reasons.
It made me ovulate but did not result in pregnancy.
The HCG injections lengthened my luteal phase long enough to allow implantation. Gave me pregnancy symptoms every month.
Got pregnant 5th round ended in ectopic. Waited 6months on it again.
I ovulated well on femara but I have stage 4 endometriosis so that is what kept us from pregnancy overall.
No adverse reactions, just no pregnancy with IUI
I didn't have any side effects from this medication. I was finally able to ovulate after 4 years of trying to conceive. No pregnancy yet, but we will be using the same medication next round.
My cycles have been regular (28-32 days) for 5 months straight (this has never happened before in my life, 2 months in a row was a miracle). Although I haven't gotten pregnant yet, I am feeling better overall and I am having less symptoms.
It works good with making me ovulate, but the side effects are bad. I get constant headaches all day long.
It made me very sleepy and my body was just very tired the entirety of me taking it.
It did help grow my follicles, but it did not result in a pregnancy. I did femera for my iui's.
It worked! It produced multiple eggs for me but some of them weren't mature enough so I had to take another drug to help them to mature. The side effects were minimal.
I got 2-5 follicles each time on a low dose.
I took one cycle of femera that lead to a 17cm which became our first son. We are just starting femera again in hopes of conceiving a second time!
After 3 unsuccessful cycles of ovulation indication and timed intercourse using clomid (the last of which led to a 3cm ovarian cyst) my RE changed me to Femara. I have to say I have tolerated it so much better than the clomid. On clomid, I was felt irritable, had mood swings and was easily tearful. Femara causes a fit of fatigue for me and the occasional hot flash but certainly easier to deal with than the clomid.
So far so good.
A specialty pharmacy can distribute prescription medications that are either high cost, high complexity, or require more instruction to administer. Most medications for fertility procedures must be purchased from a specialty pharmacy.
