Quick update

Hi all! So just a little update. Last Friday I had an US done to see how I reacted to the new med Femara. Now, at my last US after using 150mg of Clomid, they did see a follicle but it was barely over 8 something (I don't remember the unit of measurement they use for egg follicles). So because it was still small, they had me do the Provera again and then start Femara. At my US they found a much bigger follicle...one that was even noticeable to me! It was 18. So they instructed my DH to give me an injection of Hcg to help trigger ovulation (thank goodness he's a nurse too, so I wasn't as scared to have him give me the injection). We then had DTD over the weekend. This is goin to be a looong 2ww. Our RE told us there's a 30% chance of getting pregnant the first time on Femara. I sure do hope I'm in that 30%. But even if it doesn't happen right away, at least we know what works for me right now. So 2ww, if AF comes then it's back to another round of Femara...and they said we'll do this for 3-4 cycles before moving on.
Sorry this was long, but thought I'd share this experience :)

That's awesome! I've read stories of a lot of women online that say Clomid didn't get them to O but Femara did. I guess Clomid can cause more follicles but not as big and Femara usually causes only one but it's much bigger and more mature. Glad they finally got the formula down for you! :)
