 Yes...Ive been taking Femara(Letrozole) for 6 cycles now. it does help alot in getting Follicles and producing.  I took them CD3-6....1 first day, 2 the second etc. 

Ive never done clomid.  The 2 are about the same, but Letrozole has Less side effects.  My Dr said the outcomes are the same. 

Hope it works for ya!!!   Do you ovulate or is this to make you ovulate?

I dont ovulate on my own. So I do this, then test w/ OPKS cd11-18.  CD 18 if i dont surge I go in for ultrasound and hcg trigger shot.....to ovulate bout 48hrs later.

Good luck!

 I know IVF is unaffordable to us. We are going to try IUI next month(we were going to do IUI this cycle, but things didnt work out).

I would take a cycle or 2, make sure your ovulating with the 1 tube before you go with IUI.  Because IUI without knowing if the tube is working, would be money wasted and tough.  

I KNOW I'm ovulating with both tubes being clear, and with Letrozole(femara) its working.  :) Good luck to ya. If you need to talk, drop me a line.

Hugs!
