    Anyone ever take Femara?

    I didn't successfully ovulate on Clomid until I was prescribed 150mg. I only ovulated 2 out of 4 cycles on the 150mg. My RE has now prescribed Femara, taken essentially the same way as Clomid. Has anyone else tried it? Any suggestions/words of advice/success stories?

    I have taken it for 4 or so cycles. I like it better than clomid, less side effects.

    I took it for 2 cycles and it was sooooo much better than clomid (I did 10 cycles of clomid). There were no side effects for me on femara. My uterine lining was also much healthier on femara. Due to "old" ovaries (they function like they are 40), we moved on to IVF after that. Good luck!
