See your physician: Have a bhcg quantatative done, not bhcg qualatative. It would be good to see what your bhcg number is to determine if you are pregnant.

Luck, No ovulation: Femara is a good drug but if you did not ovulate then no pregnancy. Change dose is no ovulation. Luck - the success rate is about 10-15% per cycle, so try a few more cycles.
