IUI and Femara


Hi Ladies,

I'm on my 4th IUI cycle this month, and switching from clomid to femara. I actually got pregnant using clomid 100mg on my 2nd iui cycle, but that was a chemical pregnancy . My doctor told me I should give femara a try, so that's what I'll be doing this month. Do any of you ladies have success stories from using femara??
Praying this cycle works out!

I just finished my sixth round of it and will be going to ivf this month. Not quite sure what medicines I'll be on for that one yet.

Thanks for the response. Ugh this fertility journey can be so exhausting.
Why did you choose not to do IUI?

It's definitely a draining journey. I'm so ready for it to be over!

My husband is just right on the bubble of normal with his morphology so the re said that doing an iui would only give us a 7-15% success rate but ivf would be closer to 60%. We figured we might as well try it while we still have amazing insurance. $0 deductible and $20k lifetime l limit for fertility treatments.

Yeah, we pay out the wazoo for it but it's definitely been worth it. Best of luck to you as well! I hope this is your cycle.

What insurance do you have?
I work for the government and I think open season to switch insurance plans is in November, I may have to look into getting new insurance. I'm currently with Fed Blue Cross Blue Shield, which covers diagnostic blood & ultrasound tests, but not IUI or IVF.

I've got United Healthcare. I'm not sure if they label the plans differently based on the company getting them but I'm on the platinum plan. If you'd like to see the coverage I have a pdf that I can send you. It's 9 pages but I think it covers everything.
