Dear Wayne

Femara is explicitly not to be used for fertility purposes and has been clearly not approved by the manufacturers nor the regulatory bodies in most countries for that purpose. I would strongly suggest that you discuss this with your fertility specialist and discontinue femara until more information on its safety is available.

The information provided does not constitute a diagnosis of your condition. You should consult a medical practitioner or other appropriate health care professional for a physical exmanication, diagnosis and formal advice.

I really dont want to scare you but the manufacturers of Femara have sent out warnings that the medication is not to be used for ovulation induction as it may cause birth defects. I think you should do a quick google search on it and see what you come up with. Most clinics are moving away from using it now.
