For Female Infertility: “I had been trying to get pregnant for 2 years. Did a few rounds of Clomid without results. Got diagnosed with PCOS. Did one round of Letrozole 5 mg and trigger shot without results. For round two my doc upped it to 7.5 mg plus trigger shot and it was successful! Daughter is now 1 year old and we are trying again starting at 7.5 mg. Experiencing depression, fatigue, and intense dreams. Baby dust to all!!”

For Female Infertility: “I have PCOS and have been trying to conceive for 2 1/2 years. My doctor prescribed Letrozole 2.5mg for days 3-7 but since I did not conceive the first month, he upped it to 7.5mg for days 3-7. I am now on my fourth cycle with no luck. My periods have regulated and I have fertile discharge and ovulation cramping when I'm supposed to, but even sex every two days hasn't led to a positive pregnancy test.”

I don't understand if I didn't have pcos how did it work ?

For Female Infertility: “Hi All. I would like to share my experience. I've been in TTC since July 2019 and tried letrozole for a couple of months now. Got my period at November 20, December 20 and January 20. However, as of this time I still don't have period yet. Base on my period tracker I ovulated at February 9. Technically, more or less i'm now 18dpo. I took a pregnancy test multiple times but still negative. I will visit my OB this coming Saturday to check why my period is late.”

For Breast Cancer: “I’ve had cancer twice. This second time, I have Stage 3 breast cancer and had to have chemotherapy. I’m on Letrozole, and have been on it since September 2019. Firstly, I can’t believe the pain I’m in. It’s got worse by the week/month. I’m a Pilates teacher and work every day, but I’m finding that there are things I can’t do now, as my hands and elbows are unbelievably painful. I can take a lot of pain, but this is bad. When I get out of bed or up from sitting, I can barely walk away. I also have groin pain and lower back pain, yet I’m fit and strong in every other way. This is getting me down, as I feel I’m on a slippery slope. It doesn’t help that I am high risk for another cancer, and that every pain worries me. I’m sorry that there are so many who are experiencing this.”

For Female Infertility: “I recently found out I have PCOS. My periods went from regular to none, back to regular then I started my period twice in one month and didn't stop bleeding HEAVY for 3 months. I was put on provera for a year, 21 days a month to help regulate my period. Well, I've been trying to get pregnant for 2 years after my miscarriage. My doctor recently started me on Femara. I just took my first pill but I'm confused because my periods are light so idk if that will affect anything. Hopefully I ovulate and my period isn't prolonged!”
