Using Letrozol/Femera

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Anyone used this yet? I have done several rounds of clomid, Ovulated at 200mg however no pregnancies. Its been 5.5yrs now. RE suggested Letrozol/femera.

Successes? Anyone use it ?

I used it for three cycles. According to my RE - it is slightly less reliable than clomid.

There are less side effects than Clomid - which is lovely!

I am not sure why they go for clomid and then suggest you go backwards to letrozole...seems like a slightly less effective drug for this treatment... My doc did this too...

I was on Femara last cycle and I did not ovulate. My body tried but follicles stagnated at 13mm for a few days, then receded. This was totally odd since I have not known myself to not ovulate and was taking it primarily for Luteal Phase Defect. I am now in a quandry about how to move ahead this cycle, given I don't know how to deal with an anovulatory cycle. Reason they did Femara is that Clomid thinned my lining.

I have no success to report, though. I may move on to injectibles after another round of Clomid (they will supplement with estrogen to try and rescue my lining, which worked last time it thinned).

Best to you,
AnaMom
