Letrozole

Imagine my surprise when I picked up my Letrozole/Femara prescription and saw this warning: Do NOT use this medicine if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. What?! I read up on Letrozole so I knew that while it has been known to help ovulation it has not been FDA approved for that purpose yet – it is approved for treatment of breast cancer. But I definitely wasn’t expecting a warning like this! Since this is a test cycle with my husband still being gone, I’m not too worried - but I am going to ask my RE about it when I see him for the HSG test on Thursday. You think he might have warned me.

I am on day 3 of the Letrozole and haven’t had any side effects, but I think I’d prefer to have the crazy Clomid side effects knowing that at least it was FDA approved!

I love those big yellow stickers. Makes one feel so confident, no?

The thing is that letrozole isn't FDA approved for what they are using for. But here is what you need to keep in mind. Letrozole has an extremely short half life - this means that by the time your little one implants, the drug is LONG gone out of your system. The warning is for the fertiles of the world, who aren't so carefully monitored and don't know when they get knocked up. The way that you and I take our meds and are so monitored, it will not affect your baby. Promise.
