Moving on to Femara and Menopur...any success?
We will be moving on to 5mg of Femara Cd 4 - 8 and then menopur CD 9 - 11.  Then trigger and IUI.  Has anyone had success with this?  I usually take Femara on CD 3 - 7 so I don't know why she wants me to take them on CD 4 - 8 this month.  I am wondering if I should switch back to Clomid for a month since I was on Femara last month.

Hi there-I was on clomid 2 months with IUI and trigger-only had 2 follicles both times.  I was on Femara this month, trigger and IUI and I had 6 follicles.  I also took it on 4-8.  So, for me, femara worked much better.  I didn't do Menopur.  I am in my 2ww and will find out on Tuesday.  I wish you all the best!

One more thing-my RE switched me to femara because my uterine lining is very thin.  Clomid natrually thins your lining so if you have that issue, you may want to stick with femara.  Just food for thought.  :)

I've done probably 10 cycles of Clomid - and 2 of Femara.  I ovulate on both of them, but usually only one follicle.  I read somewhere that if you switch them up and go everyother month your body responds better?  I don't know...my lining was great with Femara but I didn't notice any CM.  This will be my 3rd IUI ... don't know how much more I can do after this.

Thanks for the advice.
