When we were ttc #2 a couple of years ago it took about 16 cycles. After 12 months no luck we went to the RE and he ran some tests and then put me on Femara for 3 cycles. We had no luck and decided to take a break and the next natural cycle is when I got pregnant. Not sure how true this is but I have read that you can have increased fertility after months of being on meds. No idea if that’s what happened to us or if it was just a coincidence. Hopefully it happens for you as well! 

We are ttc #3 now and my RE went straight to Femara for us last cycle but no luck. I wasn’t able to get to see my RE for my exam in time to take Femara this month so I’m hoping maybe the residual helps? FX for both of us!!

alaska_99705 :  we might be the exception to the rule but we did 5 rounds of Clomid back to back and were taking a month off before starting Femara.  I normally unmediated didn’t ovulate until CD26-28 and on Clomid it was CD16-17 but the month we took off I ovulated on my own on CD13-14 and that’s the month we got our sticky baby.
