Hi all! I'm new to this forum. I was wondering in any ladies have ever been on Femara 2.5mg cd 3-7? did it work? I received a trigger shot og HCG 10,000 on 2/20/12. I have been taking preg test everyday to check and see if it's left in my system. of course it still is. I'm due to start af on 3/9/12. When can I take a preg test and not get a false possitive? also dr put me on Progesterone Lozenges every 12 hours. Please someone help:) thanks

Did your doctor do regular ultrasounds to look at your follicles and discuss the effect of the Femara on your ovaries and uterus? I did Femara with Menopur this round, we triggered last night. My IUI is tomorrow. My nurse said I responeded really well to the Femara. I had 6 or 7 good follicles on each ovary compared to 2 last round. My uterine lining was 7mm as compared to 5 on the previous round. Wait until at least two weeks after the trigger, maybe more to test. Based off of what I normally do, I suggest testing on 3/7. Good luck!
Me 34; DH 37;TTC 2.5 years; MFIF low morphology.
First IUI 12/03/2011 = BFN
Second IUI 02/01/2012 = BFN.
Third IUI March 2012.

Yes I had u/s. I only have one tube so it will take us longer to conceive. I had 2 good gollicles on my left side and my lining was 6.5. I was on Femara 2.5mg cd 3-7. I will retest on the's driving me nuts with this keeping fingers crossed. I had brownish/pink spotting 2 days ago but only lasted a few hours and now nothing. my period is due on 3/7.
