    Default Anyone get a BFP with Femara and Ovidrel trigger?

    I am currently on CD 8 - I took Femara 5 mg CD 3-7. I have an ultrasound this weekend and will hopefully trigger with Ovidrel then. I have started to get really discouraged over the past several months and I'm wondering if anyone has had success/bfp with this combination? I am a thin cyster and I did not ovulate or get my period without medication. Any stories would be appreciated!!!

    My good friend took Femara for 9 months before getting her BFP! be patient I am trying to be as well. On my second month of Femara I ovulated on my own after 10yrs of different fertility medications. This last month (well cycle I'm on now -3rd month) I didn't get any positive opks. But RE's office said I had some corpus letums so that indicated ovulation happened. So now I'm just waiting as patiently as possible. It's hard so I feel your frustration!!!

    I'm a thin cyster (dx'd 2006) & currently on a Femara/Ovidrel cycle now TTC #2, so I'll have to keep you posted! This is my first Femara cycle after 7 rounds of Clomid with & without triggers. My U/S showed one 20 mm and one 14 mm follicle, which is less than with the Clomid, but my lining was much thicker. I triggered last Tuesday & had an IUI on Wednesday. Are you doing an IUI after your trigger? I hope this will be your lucky cycle! Best of luck.

    I'm not doing IUI because my husband's SA came back normal. Would there be any reason for me to do it if DH is normal?

    They say that it does NOT increase your chances (maybe like 1% chance increase) any unless your DH has low #'s so in other words it would be a waste of money for you

    It was told by both of my RE's it's a 5% chance increase.

    yes!!! that is what I am pregnant from... Femara 7.5 mg cd 1-5 (I think my RE was the only man in the world that did 1-5 because I never ran into anyone else on here with those days lol) and the trigger shot. I only had one follie. we did our very first IUI (due to morph issues with DH's sperm) and now I will be 20 weeks pregnant on thursday.. there are lots of cysters turning to femara and getting those bfp's.. .dont give up if this cycle doesnt work.. .it took me 4 femara cycles (2 previous clomid cycles also).

    IUI would only be beneficial in your case if there were any cervical mucuous issues or if something was just in the way that you arent aware of

    hey girls! well, i went to the RE yesterday for the first time. she prescribed prometrium to get my af, then im to start 5 mg femara cd 3-7....ultrasound cd 14 and if there are follies, ovidrel.. if not, ill go back in another 5 days to check for follies again. im kinda excited bc ive never done femara or clomid! but, im also sooooooooooo nervous b/c they give u a 15% chance. i see so many girls on here get bfp's with femara and clmoid, so i just pray i can ovulate with this boost. maybe we could have a christmas miracle!

    do any of you want to be cycle buddies or anything, since we're all doing femara? i just did my first day or prometrium yesterday, so im a little behind but it's so nice having other girls to talk to. a girl on another thread asked me to be her cycle buddy, and i swear 2 days later (after taking femara) she got her bfp!!

    It sounds like you and I have a lot in common, so I have appreciated reading these responses! I am also a thin cyster. I tried clomid for 5 months with no success. I am now on my 2nd round of femara with the ovidrel trigger. We are doing timed intercourse, as SA was normal. I have read a lot of good things about femara, so here's hoping we both get our BFP soon!

    I got a bfp from that exact combo (ended in m/c though). So it does work, good luck!

    I am also a thin cyster. I am currently pregnant (21 weeks) after 5 mg femara days 3-7 and ovidrel on day 13. It was my first round of femara after Clomid. I ovulated on clomid but had lining issues so switched to femara after a break.

    My RE also said that IUI will not increase your chances if there is a normal SA
