I am taking this medication to induce ovulation and it has worked for 3 months now, even though I am not pregnant yet I hope to be soon since we know its working. I do get severe cramps with it and I am moody but I can deal with it.

Comment:
I was prescribed letrozole 2.5 mg for 5 days to induce ovulation. My first month I produced 2 good looking follicles, but did not get pregnant. The second month I took the same dose of medication and produced 1 good follicle. I am happy to report that I am pregnant! I have PCOS and am very pleased with the outcome.
