Ovulation test: If you were taking Letrozole I assume it was to help with ovulation. If so then the key step is to have testing done to determine if ovulation occurred or not. This way the doctor can evaluate if the medication is working or not. This is more important than how it affected one menstrual cycle. If your periods continue to be abnormal have your fertility doctor evaluate you for abnormal periods.
