Did you get pregnant with TWINS useing FEMARA?
if so, please tell me the dose and the circle day that you start.
thank you.

For Pete's sake, are you just asking about every possible drug you can think of here? Femara is a chemotherapy drug used to treat breast cancer, not for someone ttc.

Okay, I became pregnant with twins when I ate two pieces of toast, I howled at the moon for 20 minutes, spanked "tea for two" on my butt and then hopped up and down for 1/2 an hour. My secret is out. LOL!

AfuaPomaah - I took Femara for 2 cycles. I did not respond to it as well as I did the clomid, however since I was on clomid for 9 months.....they had to change me. I am sorry, but the Femara did not result in a pregnancy for me. Femara works by suppressing the production of estrogen. Thus, creating the effect of producing more hormones that work solely for ovarian stimulation. These hormones namely LH and FSH help in both the processes of ovulation induction and superovulation. As a result, Femara has become widely accepted as an infertility drug. I wish you luck while on your journey!!

Oops, one more thing.........with the use of any type of infertility medication comes the chance of multiples. It just really depends on how your body reacts to the medication. (number of follicles, maturity of follicles and then timing for conception)

Samehere, amazing that's how I conceived too! Now that the secret is out everyone is going to be having twins. Thanks a lot.

Ok, I looked up more stuff for you and now I'm angry. Who the hell are you to call people uneducated??? Read this : "The aromatase inhibitor Femara (letrozole) -- approved as adjuvant breast cancer therapy in postmenopausal women -- can cause birth defects and miscarriages when it is used off-label as a fertility drug, Canadian authorities have warned. Action Points

Note that Femara, an aromatase inhibitor, is only approved as adjuvant breast cancer therapy for postmenopausal women.


Advise patients who ask that Femara is contraindicated in premenopausal women, pregnant women, or women who are lactating because of the potential for maternal and fetal toxicity and fetal malformations.

Also advise patients that in a Canadian study women who took Femara as a fertility drug were nearly three times as likely to have babies with birth defects as those who did not take the drug.

You make me sick!!!! Do your research!!

Ummm, after calling us "uneducated", you misspelled "INTELLIGENT”. Classic.


montie75 - September 10th, 2007 2:19 PM

Rhiannon – I am sorry that you are so upset regarding Femara. I see the top fertility specialists in the State of Michigan thru the Henry Ford Medical Center. You are right, Femara has not been approved by the FDA to be used as a fertility medication, however it has a better success rate than clomid due to the fact that is does not damage your uterine lining after several consecutive uses and also because it generates a better quality follicle. The specialist I have talked to said that the Canadian study has not been proven to be a fact regarding birth defects. Matter of fact, in all the years they have used it, they have only seen 1% born with birth defects which it can’t be proven to be caused by the Femara itself. Femara is ONLY dangerous to the fetus when it’s taken DURING pregnancy. If you are using it correctly with a specialist, you should only be taking the drug during follicle growth period, not during a positive pregnancy period. I don’t understand why you guys are getting so mad over the use of Femara. It’s personal preference and what they discuss with their fertility specialist. No reason for name calling.

Freebird, femara is a fertility drug also. I used it this cycle and got two good folicles. a very nice one on the right and an okay sized one on the left. I took the trigger shot yesterday on 9-24-07. I felt cramping from the right side today about 11:00 am, which was about 22 hours after I took the trigger shot, so wish me luck!!! Dr said BD on 9-24-07 and in 36 hours.

I can recommend a reputable pharmacy (Femara) - 24tabs.org I received the order and it was on time and the pills work great.
