    Progesterone or creamy cervical mucus higher with girls or boys a few days past ovulation

    Quick question for anyone who has taken Femara? Today is day 3 of my cycle and trying to decide if I am going to take Femara this month or go without. Do you know if starting past day 3 may help to stimulate just one dominant follicle? My doctor lowered my dose this month because last month I had 2-3 dominant follicles but I was wondering if maybe I should consider starting it day 4? At my doctors office they either start you on day 3 or 4. Any experience with doctors pushing back the start date for something like that? Trying to decide whether to take it this month or just go without so I donít have to stress about too many follicles. Would be grateful for your advice Atomic.

    I feel we see better rates of conception starting it CD 3.

    The theory is that starting it later will make fewer follicles, but I have seen plenty of twins in CD 5-9 dose and plenty of singles in CD 3-7, and given that I also feel it's better rates of conception with CD 3-7 that's what I recommend.

    STarting it CD 4 is also an acceptible option, but if you're trying to stick with the theory about the number of follicles I'd just wait the extra day and start it CD 5.

    Thank you Atomic. When I posted it was already day 3 for me and I decided just to go ahead and start. Hoping for one healthy follicle this month instead of two so I can relax and try. Thank you for your input.

    Most doctors will have you try with two follicles. Two follicles does not necessarily or even usually make two babies.

    Atomic hoping you can help. Itís my 5th month on Femara and we decided we would try before I triggered and for the days following because we wanted to give ourselves the best chance to get pregnant this month. My lining was at 5 and the doctor added in estrogen patches the day before I triggered to help increase my lining. I go to get my progesterone checked tomorrow but already feel pretty discouraged because I havenít noticed an increase in the lotion like cm that I have on months where my progesterone levels have been high it seems more thin and watery. Do you know if the estrogen patches can effect progestrone?

    What can happen is that your body can basically use up its raw materials making estrogen after you've been on Femara (since you make a big burst of it all of at once)

    But that having been said I think you're way overthinking this. We have not found that you can tell things like your hormone levels on the basis of observing your CM, particularly where progesterone is concerned. You can certainly tell when you're fertile, but not the amount of progesterone you're making.

    Thank you Atomic. Unfortunately my progesterone wasnít as high as the doctor likes to see when on Femara this month at 13.8. Looks like we are going to give IVF a chance moving forward. Iím turning 38 this year so praying this will work for us.

    Good luck!! Have you considered donor eggs?? Might be something to read up on even if you decide to go a different way.

    Thank you Atomic. I donít think we will do donor eggs? Do you think chances with IVF for a 38 year old are pretty slim? Maybe we are better to just stick with the Femara rather than waste so much money.

    Your doctor can better advise you after doing your pretesting. Obviously your odds at 38 are not as good as at 28 but people still have had success with their own eggs if they have good pretesting.
