Newbie - looking for Letrozole buddies :)


Hi everyone,
Wanted to jump right in and introduce myself We have been TTC for the past 2+ years now and discovered that I have PCOS and have not been ovulating. I have so far lost 2 stone to start Clomid which was no good as it made my cycle super short and I didn't respond. Since tried Letrozole and the initial dose didn't work and we were told we would need IVF lose more weight pronto. Well we have since tried double dose letrozole and I surprised everyone and ovulating! Coming to the end of the tww now and pretty sure the witch is on her way
Anyone else on Letrozole? Would love to know if it gave you your BFP

Em x

Hey- I am on my first cycle of letrozole. I ovulated really late so we missed it since I was out of town. I am due for af tomorrow or Thursday. So just waiting for that. I was going to take a break this cycle but I think I will give 5 mg of Letrozole another shot. I found I had super high post o temps so I think I had a good strong o.

Hi Em and a at Krissie

My journey started back when Hubby and I got married -- 5 years. I had no clue what was going on and didn't know what to do, so I just did my yearly Provera and went on... Anyways so 3 years wasted not knowing that I was supposed to be having periods more than once a year, and oh yeah --- ovulating too.

Fast forward....after failing metformin twice and a round of clomid. I'm on letrozol.
Did two rounds of 2.5mg and got nothing over a .6 nL/mg ...
I suggested that we up the dosage to 5mg and I FINALLY Ovulated!!!

They told me I should loose weight too, I think they tell everyone that. But like Hubby says: "There are tons of people who are way less healthy than us, and end up having healthy kids -- so don't worry about it."

I had never seen the ewcm before, nor experienced ovulation cramps, but this cycle I did...
Although I don't have a BFP yet, I will say that it may just depend on your dosage! They were going to send me to an RE and discuss further, but if this cycle doesn't pan out, I'll be happy to take another round of the Letrozol!

Currently I'm sitting on my TWW .... anxiously trying not the over speculate everything. But I'm really just hoping my period shows up when it's supposed to! (or any time before the end of the month!) or a little miracle to show up

Hi Krissie and Stargazer rose!! How is the TWW both treating you? I'm also right there! AF was due yesterday and I feel like she's playing hide and seek with me! BFN yesterday but I guess its not over until she shows. I am 100% sure of when I ovulated as I had a scan and blood tests to confirm but witch hasn't made her appearence yet. I'm so torn between just feeling i'm pregnant and wondering if this is what is normal after I've actually ovulated as I've never experienced it before!

Fingers crossed for you Krissie - I hope you get your BFP!

Star gazer - that sounds exactly like me i had no clue I never ovulated! I had one period in 9 months and the doctors told me this could be "normal" yeah right! I lost 2 stone so far but they are pushing me to lose another 2 as they thought our only shot would be IVF until recently. I feel exactally the same some time its so hard to lose weight with PCOS and others more unhealthy than me seem to have no trouble. Frustrating!

Please post back if you get your bfp's ladies! Xx

Af arrived tonight. So onto my second round of femara. At least we have a chance this month since I will not be going anywhere.

Urgh this TWW has been an emotional roller coaster! I am on edge, super emotional, and just everything in between.

I tested Thursday: BFN
I tested this morning: BFN

Sunday is when AF is supposed to show up. and I'll test again then.

I'm getting pretty down right now, I'm not sure if it's just my emotions, my two BFNs or what.

I gave up trying to loose weight... I tried a gym and i really only used the treadmills and the ellipticals, I hated doing all the other things. And after a while, I kinda just gave up on the whole thing. I feel bad cause I drive by the place on the way to work all the time. oh well.
I did promise myself that if I did become pregnant that I would do a pregnancy work out. But I won't start it before then, cause I honestly am that lazy...

I hate working out too. I work full time and have a 2 year old to look after. Plus a huge yard and house that is too much to maintain. So by the end of the day I am too exhausted to do much of anything. But even before that I didn't do much.

I am trying hard on my diet. Today is CD 1 so gonna work hard to stick with it this time. I am hoping to bring o up a bit since last cycle it was CD 22.

I bought the WiiFit --- all intending to use it, had no space so it got boxed back up, still really don't have room cause the only space I can DH's XBox rules the room, and i can't set it up. Plus most of it is yoga and stretching, and I have no freakin balance for it (tried, failed, and fell many many times)

I need to find a way to get more veggie in my life... I love veggies, but DH doesn't like any.
Besides making a bag for just me and eating it every day... which gets boring faster than making it... I don't know how to improve my diet.
I've tried many things --- spending tons of money for the stuff to just sit in my fridge and rot because DH doesn't eat any of it, and i have to make my own food, AND his food --- and after spending 2 hours prepping food one night, I gave up.

Urgh I'm getting to the point where I just want AF to come... is that bad? she's 2 days away and I'm just ready for her -- I guess if I'm not going to be pregnant I at least want a reason to feel like crap, cry for no reason, a bite the milk cap's head off because it fell on the floor! (yeah I did that yesterday).

Hi! I'm on my first cycle of letrozole too. Took 5mg daily days 3-7. O'd I belive on the 22nd, so currently 10dpo. BD'd the 4 days leading up to O but not the day of. Tests are negative so far, using 10miu IC's. Feeling like I'm out but will try again tomorrow morning with FRER. AF due the middle of this coming week Temps are still high, having major hot flashes on and off, craving salt, shortness of breath. No other symptoms that are out of the ordinary.

I've been testing for the past few days and I got nothing ... all negative. AF was supposed to show today and all I'm having is my little idk what to call it "stitch" muscle feeling on the left side (it's something i've felt before this cycle, so idk what it is) It comes and goes...

I'm worried if AF doesn't show and I'm not pregnant... Heck I'm worried if she does show. So many emotions and questions with these negative tests.

I haven't been super tired today or emotional... maybe that's a sign my progesterone has went down?
