Letrozole and pregnancy rates

Common Questions and Answers about Letrozole and pregnancy rates


Avatar f tn I am on my first cycle of gonal-f and letrozole with tic, i hope and pray that this works for me because we have done 4 cycles of clomid with no success.
Avatar n tn Of course IVF will give you the highest success rates for pregnancy for a history of PCOS and endometriosis. Metformin alone has not been shown to be superior to ovulation induction with clomiphene in women in PCOS. So if you do not have diabetes or prediabetes, ovulation induction with Clomiphene would be superior to Metformin alone.
Avatar n tn I have never heard of that and my doctor sure didn't tell me of such a pregnancy. I took another bpt on Monday and this time my hcg level was over 2000. I hope that this is a good thing. My hcg levels continue to increase. So, how can your sac continue to grow if there is no baby inside? If there is no baby then what happens to the sac? Were you having any symptoms, if so what were they or did you just show up for your ultrasound and that's when you found out?

6889053 tn?1386029103 Along with Clomiphene lifestyle modifications like weight control, exercise are very important to improve the success rates of Clomiphene.Tamoxifen and gonadotropins are other drugs which can help women with PCOS to get pregnant. The pregnancy rate is about 15 per cent in patients with PCOD taking Clomiphene, but success depends on the length of treatment and other factors. It varies woman to woman. You should start taking folic acid, exercise daily and reach your optimal weight.
Avatar f tn I am new to this community and in reality very confused and request for help and guidance . I am on the 5mg dosage of Letrozole from D3 to D7. I wanted to know, is it always effective to take this medicine . I also suffer from PCOS. I am on second cycle now and had my Menstrual Cycle was on CD27 with pre-menstrual discharge on CD26. It lasted for 4days only , so how do i get to know if I actually ovulated or not ?
Avatar n tn It is off label use for fertility but a paper came out in November 2006 which compared 911 births using either letrozole or clomid and they saw no difference in congential defects between the two (actual data showed femara had fewer defects and higher pregnancy rates but it was not statistically significant). I know a lady who went through two IVF's before they realized the clomid had thinned her lining and she had no pregnancies so that makes me want to stay away from it.
398038 tn?1247860603 The usual length of treatment is for five days. Some early studies suggested that the pregnancy rates with letrozole far exceeded those with clomiphene citrate and were possibly even higher than gonadotropins. Further data has determined that this is not the case. Pregnancy rates with letrozole are similar to those seen with clomiphene citrate and are lower than the pregnancy rates seen with gonadotropins. Older patients have a lower chance of success than younger patients.

9828276 tn?1407174870 ) Haven't heard of Letrozole yet, there are so many medications out there it's overwhelming. I go back in to my doctor on my next cycle from day 2-4 to get blood work to check my hormones. This last time I was in on my cycle, my doctor saw a cyst on my left ovary but didn't seem concerned. We have a prescription of clomid already from my reg doctor, but the specialist whom we started seeing recently said to hold off on taking it because of my cycst...
463339 tn?1207536484 Theoretically the implantation rates and the pregnancy rates do not show any different. You can just be more selective on day 5 and narrow the number down. For instance if you have 5 good day 3 embryos on day 5 you will probably only have 2 or 3, so lets wait and see whats there on day 5 and only transfer the two best. I think it is somewhat naive not to try a day 5 transfer.
Avatar n tn Ask them what their approach and success rates with women who have higher FSH rates. I don't remember who it was, but, there was a women on this web-site who is in her 40's and had higher FSH. It took some time, but she was able to conceive and had a healthy baby. Don't give up hope with one dr.'s opinion..... I will keep you in my prayers.
178239 tn?1277409091 -) Where in your cycle are you? And how long have you been using Letrozole?
Avatar n tn I did a pregnancy test this morning and it was positive. Maybe I was so happy that I probally hit the wrong button. Lucenna, I pray all goes well for you too, please let us know.
280700 tn?1210287416 I have had plenty of early pregnancy symptoms and I am hoping and praying that I am pregnant. Me and my husband have wanted a baby for so long and I just want it to happen so bad. It's all that I can think about.
Avatar f tn I've been on Clomid 50mg then 100mg for almost a year on and off. I tried letrozole one month. Had 2 mature follicles this time and my DH had a count of 178 million happy guys. Hopefully this is it! Thankfully my insurance covers this 100%. They even cover 4 cycles of IFV. I am lucky in that dept. Good luck everyone!
1160836 tn?1332333769 2 mg a day from the time they start doing the follicle check until they confirm pregnancy. It helped to build up my lining very quickly and effectively!! I'm sure I'll have to take it again this time around as my dose is 150 mg. I'm still waiting for AF she hasn't come yet!!! GRRR..... The only time I want her to come and she isn't showing up.
1647691 tn?1363727302 I wasn't feeling right, had taken a home pregnancy test that came out positive, subsequently took about 15 more (haha) and then made my OB appt. Pregnancy was confirmed via bloodtest, but a few days later began heaving cramping and made an ER visit. My scan showed the exact same thing - a blighted ovum. They gave me pills to make me miscarry, start my period or whatever and I just refused to take them. I kept on with my prenatal vitamins and made a follow-up appt like 2 weeks later.
1294995 tn?1330666336 After that I did 2 rounds of clomid, 2 rounds of hormone shots and this last time I did the letrozole, hormone shots and an IUI. And if I have a $1.00 for every time someone at worked asked me, "So, what are you waiting for? Why arnt you pregnant yet" I would be retired at the age of 26. lol I know it is tough- but hopefully this will be a good month for all of us. Mango- Glad you had a good holiday, I am sure seeing that baby was tough for ya. Keep your head up girlie!!
