Does Femara Work Better Than Clomid
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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: You can use both together since they work by different mechanisms,although that would be rather unorthodox. Usually it is one or the other. For more info: www.AskYourGynecologist.org ...Read more
I have been ttcfor about 20 months now. I have had a mc & an ep. I started Clomid (clomiphene) and then femara, but I haven't gotten pregnant in a year. Next step?
TTC 20 months: With a prior ectopic pregnancy, the chance of another can be 25%. Please check the fallopian tubes, semen analysis and consider uterine evaluation with ultrasound or saline sonogram. Depending on findings and your age, either ovulation induction and insemination or ivf will be suggested. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can Femara b used after 6 lifetime clomid (clomiphene) cycles are used up (clomid (clomiphene)=successful but I want more kids) or are injectables or IVF the only options left?
Could be, sometimes: but is it a good idea? Clomid (clomiphene) does not need to be limited to 6 cycles lifetime, but 6 unsuccessful cycles (not lifetime) is usually reason to change up. The question would be why is the CC not working? Femara is very similar to CC in performance, so no reason to expect it would be more/ less successful. Often updating or expanding diagnosis to understand the CC failure is a better next step. ...Read more
Which medicine good for pcos femara or clomid (clomiphene)? I already took fenara 2.5mg but dint get pregnant?
Both: Both are good options but the key question is whether or not you ovulated in response to the medication. We usually monitor our patients undergoing ovulation induction therapy so we can see if a nice follicle grows and also keep an eye on the endometrial lining. If you have failed to conceive with 3-4 ovulatory cycles and the sperm and your tubes are normal then a consultation is in order. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I'm trying to be conceive about 1 year but no good luck and i diagnosed pcos. I took femara and metformin. Now can I take clomid (clomiphene)? Pls let me know
I have irregular menses endometrial hyperplasia and pcos have kids already want another which is better Clomid (clomiphene) or femara?
Femara (letrozole): Femara seems to be better at ovulation induction than clomid (clomiphene). It has a shorter half life therefore it is not in the body very long. Clomid (clomiphene) has a long half life thus after repeated Clomid (clomiphene) cycles the chance of pregnancy decreases due to the estrogen blockage at the uterus. ...Read more
I have pcos already have kids unable to conceive suffered ischemia stroke from metformin and hormonal birth control should I try Clomid (clomiphene) or femara?
Maybe either: In the us these drugs are only available by prescription, so i'd direct you to ask your own doctor. If they are available without prescription, it's your call. There are risks and side effects you should be aware of, but again its usually with a doctor to guide you. I'm afraid that discussion is not doable in a short online answer. ...Read more

This is complicated!: Try a Virtual Consult with one of our gyno specialists? Also, ask YOUR fertility specialist what point(s) in the process they think this failed and what's the next step. Also, if they're monitoring your natural progesterone levels, are they consistent with ovulation? External progesterone helps maintain pregnancy but won't help trigger ovulation. IVF requires healthy ova for success. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
