Femara (letrozole) and cycle length

Postby Taters » Sat Feb 04, 2012 4:52 pm

Does Anyone know if Femara shortens your cycle length? I am starting it nexy cycle with IUI's due to irregular ovulation, with monitoring. I would love it if I could have a 28 day cycle!

It shortened my cycle but did not give me that elusive BFP...I hope your results are different!

Good luck :)

I'm starting my first round of Femara too so I have no idea yet if it'll shorten my cycle. I was given Clomid to start with (did 7 rounds) for my irregular ovulation and it shortened my cycles to about 30-31 days, CD 16 O like clockwork and 14-15 day LP. It was amazing having "regular" cycles! Good luck! :D
