So my ob-gyn just prescribed me with 2.5 mg of Letrozole to be takes cd3 – 7 with timed intercourse from cd 10, 12, 14 and 16. DH and I have been trying 4 months (on our 5th now) and all of my tests have come back positive, literally no concerns. I’m quite regular and based on temps and opk, know that I ovulate around cd15 or 16. She saw me for about 10 minutes, we have horrible wait times here in Canada and her only explanation is that I can try Letrozole for a month and if I’m not pregnant after this she said we would check my tubes. Also DH has never gotten any testing done as of yet so can’t even rule that out yet. So what gives? Also curious to hear BFP’s after the first cycle taking this?

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.
