Femara No follicles


Hi Ladies,

Haven't been on here in a while, hope I can get some advise from the experts,lol.

So I last had a period in Feb, was put on Clomid 100mg from cd 3-7, sad to say it didn't take and haven't had my period since. Was put on provera, that didn't work either to bring on the period.

Was finally able to get an app with my obgyn, and he put me on postoval to gget my period going, and boy did it clean me out. Started Femara 5mg, on cd 3-7 as we no longer have stock of clomid in SA. Went in today CD 10 and besides a very healthy lining, no follicles. He checked on 2 different machines nothing. Now I've been googling like crazy and not much info is available. Does this mean that I'm out for this month or is there a possibility I could still O?

Was told to wait for my period and given a script for clomid and to see him at cd10 again. Clomid should be back in stock by then.

Thanks for you time

hmmm, if you don't have a developing follicle that your doctor can see on the ultrasound then there is no mature egg to be ovulated. If you do ovulated this month I think it won't be for a while because it takes a while for the follicle to develop and then release the egg. I hope you have better luck back on your Clomid next month.

I always thought that if you don't ovulate then you don't have a period. Turns out I was having a period every month but not ovulating. Your hormones can still cycle and cause a period with no egg released. I would say you may or may not have a period this month.

Hi,

I seem to have a similar problem! I was also on clomid for the past year, 4 cycles last year no luck and 2 cycles this year no luck, took a 2 month break, and now got unwell today and FS gave me a script for Femara almost fell on my back for the price!! I paid R1050 for 15 tabs, taking it the exact same way I did clomid, from cycle day 3 to 7, 3 a day. And I go on cycle day 13 for a follow up scan.

Good Luck, there is a chance that you would ovulate later, as sometimes, the follicles take longer to grow in some than others....

TyMeg...I have no idea if this will be the same where you are but Femara varies widely in price in the states depending on where you buy it. I found prices from $5 all the way up to $80. You may want to check around if you have that option.

I know that some women respond very well to Femara after not having luck with Clomid. Good luck!

Thank you ladies so much for your input and advise. I've been googling and some people say that CD10 is way too early, should only be checking around CD12 or 13. So keeping fingers crossed that maybe my follies are just shy, lol.

Tymeg, you paid that much??? OMG, I paid R330 for 10 at Dischem, asked for the generic and they gave me Laradex, so maybe ask for that next time if you have another cycle. Sending loads of baby dust your way

Hey,

My pharmacist and FS didnt want me to use the generic just yet.
They both said try the Femara 1st if it works, we can do the generic.
