Letrozole success stories

Common Questions and Answers about Letrozole success stories

femara

So the doc's decided to put me on Letrozole, it's a different form of Clomid due to the fact my lining is very thing. When I got the script filled it says it's also used for breast cancer patients, that's kind of scary but the doc's wouldn't put me on something that would hurt me right? The medicine made me pretty dizzy kind of light headed. I just hope this is what I need to get prego. This has been a very long 6 months.
Have asked before but want to hear of any positive stories using letrozole(femara) to help with ovulation, this drug is primarily a drug used to help with breast cancer and is still in research stage for fertility problems, my dr is talking with other gp's because is not happy to prescribe it to me.
id love to hear any success stories about femara, though the only thing ive heard is one girl got preg while on femara and doing an IUI at the sametime, she now has a daughter.
i recently went back to my doc who wants me to start leterzole my next cycle.. Has anyone had any succes!?!?!? whould love to har your stories... He saiys if this doesn't work we need to try injections...
has anyone been through this treatment or used this combination?any success stories?i am going out of my mind with worry.
My doctor have me taking metiform right now three times a day every 8 hours, and provera to start my period, I have to take letrozole once my cycle comes, did anyone get pregnant taking these medications as a combination??? I only seen few success stories..I pray it works this time around because my first cycle of letrozole and provera was a failure....
) Just wanted to hear any success stories to help cheer me up.
I really feel like giving up, and don't think I can handle another negative test. Any Letrozole success stories? I could really use some support, I almost broke down in the dr.'s office.

I did lots of research and I have several friends who are or have been to the place I am going and almost all are success stories. If you would like to talk let me know.
5mg two times a day of femara/letrozole and 1500mg a day metformin. I am curious about side effects, advice, success stories, etc. I am anxious and have been TTC for 3 years total, 2 with a doctors assistance. THANK YOU in advance.
I did get pregnant with my 1st IUI, but it ended up being a chemical pregnancy. I want so badly for this to work this month. Does anyone have any success stories for only 2 follicles. I know it only takes one, and I pray that it works. Thanks for all your help and I pray for all of us every night.
I finally ovulated today and I am having horrible side pain. I have heard lots of stories of clomid working on the first round if you do everything right. We had sex the 20th, 24th, 25th, 27th, 29th, today. I have super high hopes so I hope everything works out for everybody taking clomid.
Hello, I too have PCOS and insulin resistance. I was on clomid but still not ovulating for several months. My endocrinologist put me on metformin as well and both my doctors agreed it might help with conception. I was also told to cut out simple carbs and refined sugar. After 3 months of metformin and monthly clomid cycles I finally ovulated in August. And amazingly I conceived the same month. Just had my first prenatal visit and saw the heartbeat yesterday!
We have been ttc for 9 months, For the last five, we received ART assistance--2 IUI cycles with Letrozole and 3 cycles with just Lotrozole. We were preparing for our third IUI this week when the news came that my FSH levels were high--21 and my AMH low--.4. We were told that we could do just as well on our own as they could, and that we had a <5% chance of success even with IVF-- in essence sending us home with minimal hope. We were of course devastated.
So I am suppose to have protected intercourse for the next 2 weeks and he'll call me back for setting another plan. I read so many success stories about Clomid and I feel very discouraged. Before the treatment I had an HSG and all the blood test for me and my husband, and everything was fine. Unexplained infertility for 1.5 years. I am not sure what could be the reason for my infertility , it might be endo but they didn't do a laparo for me yet.
It is my first IUI and I am VERY prepared that it is going to be a - since I have really not heard any success stories after one IUI and I really just dont think it worked. What do you think? To test or not to test!?!? Anyone have a first IUI success story?
my new Dr plans to put me on Letrozole...now I do know that a lot of people do get side effects from Letrozole as well but it does not thin the uterine lining like clomid does...so is better that ways... lets see how that goes for me next month!
All the stories are great. It gives me great sense of hope. Congrats to all of the ladies that have had sucess, and baby dust to all those that I hope with have BFP soon. We've been trying for 2 yrs so far, if would be nice if things could go back to normal, and time with my husband could be spontanious instead of planned.
I wish you the happiest 9 months with a beautiful baby at the end. I love hearing success stories on here, especially when it's been a hard road .. please keep us all posted and good luck for the first trimester!!
Then today I have had nothing but alot of ( sorry tmi) dark think black clots, it grossss! I've never really had it like this! I've always bled for at least 2-3 days then it taper off, but never clots like this on 2nd day. It worries me because I know clomid can effect your lining and how nice and healthy it is! There Is nothing nice and healthy for anything to have been able to attach to coming out now! I Just wonder if it is clomid and if this is why I didn't get pregnant this month?
At least what you have is treatable though and I've seen a lot of people on here in your situation that have gone on to have success stories and I'm sure you'll be one of those people too! Best wishes to all of you. My thoughts and prayers will be with you. We should definitely keep in touch and share our experiences. It always helps to know you're not the only one in this situation.
My RE thinks I should go with Leprozol. Has anyone on here had any experience with either of these meds? I'd love some success stories.
Its good to read of the success stories. Hoping I will be one such success story in a few weeks.
Thank you for your input, so far there aren't many success stories with IUI's and I am wondering if it's a waste of $. Definitely don't want to get my hopes up...but of course we all latch onto what we can when we want something dearly.
I had Laproscopy 5 months before I got pregnant and I am now 22 wks along. We had tried for almost 2 yrs also and I am convinced it was the procedure that gave us our BFP!! As for the procedure it itself was not painful because they put you out but afterwards due to removal of lots of endo I was in pain. My chest did hurt like they said it would and it helped to sit/sleep in a rocking chair and rock. Try to take it easy for the next 2/3 wks after the procedure! Hope this info helped.
I have mine scheduled in two weeks and am wondering what my chances are afterward and was hoping for some success stories! Also, what all is involved with this and what is the recovery time?
I got my af yesterday(few days early) My fertility doc took me off clomid because he said it can make your uterus hostile toward implantation and can build up in your system and stay for 6 to 8 weeks. So he put me on letrozole(femara) because it works like clomid but leaves your system in 24 to 36 hrs and doesn't affect the uterus conditions. It is more expensive the clomid was costing around $20 but the femara cost me $59 for 5 pills.Will probably cost more this month if he ups the dose.
Even if you have insurance. I see people with PCOs and there succes stories and it makes me wnat to throw up. There is nothing else I can do. I am a lost cause and no one around me knows how it feels to be me or how I feel.. No one can say anything right to make me feel better. I feel so unmotivated and depressed. My family either dosen't care, or says oh we'll keep this for wjen you get prego or when you gonna have one, I could just scream. I don't know what else I can do for myself.
