Just to keep sane I'm going to try and wait until AF is due so November 27th. I'm not quite sure if I will be able to hold out for that long, though!! let's keep in touch because we will likely be testing around the same time (:
Yes Def I just went to the bathroom and STILL have ewcm so thinking to be safe need to squeeze another bd in tonight also haven't really felt the usual o pain yet so hopefully soon kinda wish I would have used opks now
Hi there. I'm on my first Femara cycle. I've been LTTTC #2 and am also on Metformin. Been trying to search around and see if Femara causes you to have different/stronger PMS symptoms. I haven't really had much of anything as of late (diagnosed with PCOS in June of this year) aside from cramping while AF was here.
I'm CD28 today (not sure when I O'd though) and possibly 12/11/10 DPO and for a few days I've had cramps, sore/sensitive breasts/nipples. For a few days the cramping felt like a heavy weight on my uterus, pulling down on it.
Since this is my first cycle on Femara, I'm not sure if this is typical of Femara. Or maybe it's just PMS symptoms that I'm not used to having because I haven't been ovulating for a while. The waiting is killing me. AF should be here in 2-3 days.
I ran out of OPKs so I didn't use them. My gyn also told me they may not be reliable when on Femara too.
By my estimation and the ewcm/ov cramps I was getting, it was either CD 16, CD 17, or CD 18 lol
Not real exact but that's my best guess. I did not have any side effects on the days I took Femara (CD 5-7) and I was only taking 2.5 mg.
I did some furious research this morning and was disheartened to find that all of my symptoms right now could definitely be from increased progesterone which, if my body isn't used to ovulating, could just be more extreme.
I guess that is reassuring in a way because it means that I potentially ovulated this month and maybe another month or two on an increased dosage (going up to 5mg next cycle) will bring my BFP. I've been TTC for 4.5 years now so I'm thoroughly done waiting lol
lol that just started this afternoon...slight cramping on the right side similar to ovulation pain. Not intense or anything...just there. I'm not sure what that is, but I have been known to feel that before AF.
