Unpredictable: Not all women get cramping from clomid (clomiphene). It most likley midcycle at ovulation time but can occur at any time.

Yes: Letrozole (femara) for most women has fewer side effects than clomiphene, but can produce many of the same effects in susceptible women.

Does femara work better than clomid (clomiphene)?

No, similar success: In most studies comparing Clomid (clomiphene) and Femara the pregnancy rates are similar and neither has been found to be superior to the other. Femara for fertility is an "off-label" indication, meaning this drug was not designed for this purpose. There are pros and cons of both Clomid (clomiphene) and Femara and they have different side effect profiles. Talk to your doctor about what is best for you.

How long does it usually take before you conceive when you start on Clomid (clomiphene) and pregnyl?

It depends: If you do not ovulate on your own, then if the Clomid (clomiphene) makes you ovulate, your pregnancy rate should be normal - about 15 to 20% chance each month. If you already ovulate on your own the pregnancy rate can vary from 2 to 10% per month depending upon your age (works best in women less than 33 years old). More detailed info at www.Sbivf.Com.
