    After 3 unsuccessful cycles of ovulation indication and timed intercourse using clomid (the last of which led to a 3cm ovarian cyst) my RE changed me to Femara. I have to say I have tolerated it so much better than the clomid. On clomid, I was felt irritable, had mood swings and was easily tearful. Femara causes a fit of fatigue for me and the occasional hot flash but certainly easier to deal with than the clomid.

Important Information

Taken in piull form, letrozole is very similar to clomiphene (clomid) in the way it works. However, letrozole is quickly cleared from the body. It only works for the cycle in which it is taken and is less likely to adversely affect the uterine lining and cervical mucous.
