Femara or Letrozole is a drug used to primarily treat breast cancer, but has also shown success when used to treat ovulation-related female infertility. The drug is the most recent addition to other medications being used for fertility treatment. Femara can be used to either induce the female egg to develop and be released or to increase the chances of pregnancy in a woman already ovulating.

For many fertility centers, Clomid has been the drug of choice for ovulation induction or super-ovulation. Generally, Clomid has been very effective but it lasts for a long period of time in the female body and may cause adverse effects on cervical mucus and the uterine lining. Some women enduring PCOS and trying to conceive do not do well when taking Clomid, so another alternative would be Femara. Femara for infertility success stories will depend upon many different factors such as the age of the female, any other existing fertility problems, as well as male infertility issues. The drug shows great promise when used as an alternative for Clomid and has proven to be successful for couples trying to conceive. Femara is not used for blocked fallopian tubes or if sever male factor infertility is present, as it would do no good in these situations. Femara is beneficial in couples that experience idiopathic infertility, female age-associated infertility, moderate male factor, endometriosis associated infertility and mild tubal or cervical factor infertility.

The number of cycles of Femara needed will be dependent upon the diagnosis, any previously attempted infertility treatment, length of infertility and the age of the female. Femara is also good to use in place of Clomid because it can be effective in reducing the number of side effects a woman experiences and may be successful in cases where other drugs have not. Femara for infertility success stores are very common and the drug is much cheaper than other fertility medications. The drug is very effective and promotes ovulation in women with PCOS, but will not work for those experiencing pituitary or ovarian failure. Between 50-90% of all women taking Femara will ovulate, making it a viable option to discuss with a fertility specialist if other medications have previously failed at helping a woman become pregnant.
