    Default Help! How to ask for a prescription for Femara/Letrozole

    Hi ladies,

    I have been to a few different Dr's (both GPs and Specialists) and I can't find anyone who will prescribe me Femara/Letrozole. One Dr said it was used for breast cancer only, another had never heard of it.

    I have read a few success stories on here and facebook support groups who had no success ovulating with clomid but did with Femara/Letrozole. I know it is more common in the US but we are now into our 4 year ttc and I am desperate to try it before we spend $1000s on IVF.

    We are in Melbourne, any Dr/Clinic referrals would be amazing!

    Really appreciate any information you can share about Femara/Letrozole.

    Lots of love and baby dust

    Are you under the care of a fertility specialist (FS)? If you not ovulating is the problem then a FS will prescribe it, you generally can't get it from a GP.

    Thanks Clemency, Clomid did not help me ovulate but my FS said in Aus Femara/Letrozole (same thing) is not legally used for fertility treatment.. which is correct from what I can find online but I have read so many women who have been prescribed it in Aus.. so confused
