I have always had to suppress using birth control the month before doing an injectable cycle.

Hi,

You take Femara like you would Clomid; all that is required is that you take it on certain days in the early part of your cycle. I actually like Femara better than Clomid (less negative side-effects such as drying up CM, moodiness, thinning of lining, etc). And I've gotten pregnant 2 times on it (including my current condition)!! Good luck! :-)
