TTC Tuesday: No horse pills here

Two tiny pills.
Taken for 5 days.
A routine that is anything but normal has become "my normal."

Femara? Me too. It feels strange that these tiny, tiny little pills could help us make a baby.

So does that pill do the same thing as clomed?

Michelle said...

Amanda: Yes, femara is essentially the same. I used Clomid for 1 cycle and it gave me a cyst and thinned my lining so the doctor switched me over to Femara.

I hope it works for you this month! Are they giving you any side effects?

No side effects for me. I was taking them at night but my follow up appointment in kinda early in my cycle this time so I wanted to take them in the morning to ensure total effectiveness before my appointment. I took them at 9 a.m. and didn't have any side effects. That always makes me wonder if they are working at all!

I noticed side effects 2 or 3 days after I started them. Hot flashes for sure, and I had a bout of nausea but I'm not sure if it was related. Also some slight mood swings on my last day or two of taking them, but let's be honest - that could just be me lol. I took 5mg and I took it at bedtime. Hope no s/e for you and that it is working!! I could feel O type pains starting at about CD6 (I took it CD3-7). Good luck hun!!!
