My first time on any forum and looking for guidance from those who may have been at this crossroad before me...


I am on 5mg of Femara, this is my second month,  First month no O.

The reason for my post.  I have had negative OPK throughout this second time, and today is CD 21.

FMP today was neg... but I just got through 20 minutes of severe cramping on both sides of my lower abdomen.


Many describe painful ovulation but from what I've read that is normally much earlier, like CD 10-14...

Could this pain mean ovulation?  Do I just need to wait it out until tomorrow's OPK?  Any suggestions?


Any knowledge or experience to give would really help me out.

Are you only taking one tab of 5 mgs?  I wish I could give you any info.  I understand that ovarian pain can occur, but for me it is few and far between.  I take Femara 14 tabs of 2.5mg on CD2.  I also seem to respond around cd 14-17. So it could seem that you are responding later as well.  I would do the opk tomorrow.  Do you go to a dr that could check you with an ultrasound to find out for sure where you are with your ovulation?

I took 2 2.5 mg on CD 3-7
Neg opk today so I don't know
have had a terrible part 3 years with AF since my c-section and weight gain from my 1st.
No o as of yet and it's my second month. I may have screwed up my dose I was 12 hours late on CD 4 so it could have messed it all up.
