What is Femara?
Femara is typically used to treat breast cancer in postmenopausal women. Femara can also be used in male and female infertility. Femara works like Clomid and is usually used after the patient doesn't conceive using Clomid. Femara temporarily decreases the amount of estrogen in the body sending a message to the brain to increase the production of substances that stimulate the ovaries. This often causes ovulation in women who do not normally ovulate or who do not ovulate regularly.In many ways, Femara works similarly to Clomid. However, Femara may be less likely to cause certain problems with cervical mucus. Clomid often causes cervical mucus problems, leading to vaginal dryness or cervical mucus changes that interfere with the motility of sperm. Femara is also less likely to cause the lining of the uterus to thin, as Clomid sometimes does. A thin uterine lining can make pregnancy less likely.
Femara is known to have less side effects than Clomid. Femara side effects include; hot flashes, breast tenderness and headaches. Please note that everybody responds differently to medication, some people may have no side effects, some people may get mild side effects.
