I got my BFP after my second cycle of Letrozole (5 mg CD 3-7, followed by Pregnyl trigger shot on CD 12) but my Dr thinks I didn’t react well to the first cycle of Letrozole (2.5 mg) as I started it just after a HSG. I have very long cycles (PCOS) and my Dr didn’t want to miss the chance so just told me to start taking it. 

My husband also had a SA done during that first cycle. I find it very strange that your doctor has started you on this without checking your tubes and doing an SA.

I was on Letrozole for my first 2 iui’s and unfortunately I had no luck. I took the pills at night that way I slept through the side effects.  I can tell you that my doc tested my tubes before putting me on medication. Best wishes to you!

Why are you already in fertility if you have only been trying 4 months with no obvious problems? That’s still a very normal time frame?

I’m on my fourth cycle.

Cycle1: 2.5mg CD days 4-8. First CD12 follicle scan showed small follicles that didn’t look near ready. Went back CD16, things look better. Appears I ovulated CD18 but progesterone test was low afterwards. No BFP.

Cycle2: 5mg CD Days 4-8. Follicle scan CD12 looked good, ovulated CD15.  No BFP.

Cycle3: 5mg. Pushed to CD 6-10 to try and delay ovulation as I was going to be away from DH CD12-17. Ovulated CD16. No BFP.

Cycle4: 5mg  CD4-8. Ovulating next week.  Doctor will give me 2 more cycles before next steps, but I’m going to see a specialist next week to start expediting extra testing.
