sheclicksherheels:  Well you already know I take it CD 5-9 since we’ve talked about it. 🙂 But as for which days to take it, I’ve done a lot of googling. What I’ve found is that taking it CD 3-7 produces more follicles whereas taking it CD 5-9 produces larger follicles. My dr said that he thinks my problem is that I am not producing quality eggs because my luteal phase is so short so I am guessing that is why he chose the 5-9 instead.

I took it 5-9 too.  I read the same about Femera and Clomid, taking it early should help to produce more follies where as later should be better quality eggs.  My frist cycle of Femera, I didn’t end up ovulating until CD28, but my second I O’d CD13.  I didn’t bother with another cycle after that.

I used it to help improve the uterine environment before my FET (so it had nothing to do with number of eggs).  So there’s an added bonus to using it.  My fresh IVF didn’t work, but my FET, which included femara, did.  Good luck!

sheclicksherheels:  I finally started it today. I’m glad to know it made you O earlier! I O’d late last cycle and my luteal phase has been short so I hopr I O earlier too.
