    Atomic please help if I should take Femara

    Hi atomic, I havenít gotten pregnant and my cycle length was longer than month 33 days vs 30 days and it used to be 28 before I had 2 chemical pregnancies. Iím not sure If I even ovulated this past month? I just went to my ob today for my yearly exam and she said I could take Clomid. I told her I didnít want clomid since I conceived 2 babies with either chromosomal abnormalities/birth defects that I lost in the 2nd trimester so she suggested Femara.

    Does Femara also sway girl? Do you think itís bad to take at my age 38 (39 in Nov)?
    If you think itís goodÖwhat days of cycle do I take it? I started august 31st so Iím on cycle day 8 now.
    Thank you!

    If you got your period, you all but certainly ovulated. 28, 30, and 33 days are all normal length menstrual cycles, so even if it's unusual for you, it's within normal range and it's ok to have small fluctuations like that.

    Clomid doesn't cause those issues but Femara is good too. Yes, it sways pink, and it's also better for women 35 plus because it won't raise your FSH like Clomid can.

    Did your doctor not give you a schedule for taking it?? I would suggest 2.5 mg from CD 3-7 but I'd like to hear what your doctor suggested first. You will not be able to take Femara this month because you're on Cycle Day 8.

    Okay thatís good to know thank you! She said sheíd prescribe me either but I said clomid makes me too nervous but maybe Femara and that Iíd want to research it first. Iíll email her and see if sheíd call some in in case. I had to get stitches so no working out for a while unfortunately so hopefully that would sway and make my ovulation more regular too?

    Haha sorry for the confusionÖmy ob did end up prescribing femara 2.5 mg I think but I havenít taken it yet. I got Erythema Nodosum on my legs (I think itís an after thing of Covid or untreated strep I got 6 weeks ago?) And the dermatologist biopsied my leg to make sure so I have stitches. Dr said not to work out with the Erythema nodosum all over my legs and stitchesÖfor how long I just donít know I want to because the pain isnít too bad but I definitely donít want to make it worse. Iím also, using a topical steroid cream to reduce the inflammation and I heard that sways boy? It definitely seems to have increased my CM as I donít remember having any the last couple months and now I have lots.
    How long should I wait to take the femara? I was thinking of taking it in November? I was saying I hoped Femara would sway more since I couldnít work out?
    Maybe by then l this will be out of my system? I also donít want a summer baby so thereís that too

    That's fine not to exercise in that situation.

    Continue using the steroid cream as needed. Any claims that steroid creams are swaying blue are totally unproven.

    We have not found CM levels to be predictive of whose sways work and whose don't. Many people (myself included) have gotten boys with no visible CM and girls with CM. So I'd not read too much into that as you do need some CM to conceive ab aby of either gender.

    Ok so you want to wait to TTC till November and take the Femara then, right? That's fine with me! However you want to do it!
