    Default Letrozole Success Stories Anyone?

    Hi I'm in my second cycle of letrozole and have to wait a few more days before testing for hopefully a BFP.

    I would love to hear some positive success stories on your journey using Letrozle to keep my spirits up.

    Hi fingers xd - I was just searching the threads when I came across your post, clomid doesn't work for me as I didn't ovulate at all. My FS has suggested trying Letrozole before going onto FSH injections (which helped me to conceive last time). Just wondering did you try clomid at all first and did you have to increase your letrozole dose at all or were you lucky to ovulate straight away? Congratulations of BFP, hope all is well x

    Hi heyside

    I did try clomid and didn't ovulate. FS put me on 2.5mg letrozole and I ovulated first month, progesterone level was 22. Second month he doubled my dose and level was 56 and that's the month I got my BFP.

    The only side effect I had was really bad hot flushes, but totally worth it.

    If you have any more questions just ask.

    Good luck

    Thanks for that info fingers xd, My FS tried to play down letrozole and said he just wanted to see if it had a different effect to clomid, I don't think he wanted me to have false hope. Reading online though lots of people seem to have had results even if clomid didn't work for them so I am definitely happy to give it a try and see what happens. I have been given the same dose as you. Congrats again on BFP x

    Hi Fingers xd,

    Great to see you got your BFP. I'm on my second cycle taking letroxole CD2-6 of cycle and this cycle I had 75 of FSH CD10-12 then triggered with pregnyl on CD13 now I'm on the 2ww.

    Just wondering what early signs did you get after O? Do you have PCOS?

    I just felt different and was getting normal period symptoms but for some reason I took a test just before my next cycle was about to start. And yes I have/had PCOS. After losing 20 kgs they did diminish quiet a bit
