Femara for PCOS Women Might Be Better than Clomid?
by PCOS Editor
This site recently published a newsletter article that talked about some research suggesting that for women with PCOS, tamoxifen might be a good alternative to Clomid, since Clomid does not always work. Clomid is a drug used to induce ovulation.
Tamoxifen is a drug used to treating breast cancer. Because it is used for breast cancer, several readers had some very negative comments. They thought it was hypocritical and disgusting to write an article that seemed to promote the use of tamoxifen.
On the other hand, another person said this: "I have used Clomid/Metformin one time for a pregnancy. The second time we tried it, for 4 months, it just did not work. We switched to the breast cancer drug, Femara, in combination with Metformin, and I got pregnant 2 times with it. I would recommend it to anyone especially if you have PCOS because Femara, unlike Clomid, has practically a zero chance of a multiple birth which someone with PCOS would want to avoid."
