July 14th, 2011. CD6.
So, from what I’ve heard/read about Femara (letrozole), the side effects are supposed to be less severe than those I experienced with Clomid.
I’ll give them this–the severity may be less, but the side effects are definitely still there.
I can live with the hot flashes. There have been no night sweats thus far, thankfully. The blinding headache I’ve had the past two days is starting to make me think it’s more related to Femara than caffeine. I’ve also been dreadfully thirsty, but then again, it’s been H O T out there lately.
Oh, and the fatigue… I am so tired right now, I don’t think I will have the energy to go back and proofread. Spell check will be getting a workout today, for sure. I apologize if this post is rambling, but I’m just so darn sleepy!
Anyway, I’m about halfway through the Femara bottle: two more little yellow pills tonight, and two more tomorrow night. After that, it’s just a waiting game till my CD13 ultrasound appointment next Thursday. I hope to be growing some big fat follicles!
I’m still not looking forward to giving myself a shot, but I suppose if the ultimate goal here is to squeeze a baby out of my delicates, I better get used to a little pain.
This kid better be worth it… 🙂
