Can Femara Cause A Miscarriage
Danger to fetus: Femara (letrozole) is used to treat breast cancer in women who have gone through menopause. It should not be used in women who are or will become pregnant. It has a category x rating which means that it is contraindicated during pregnancy as animal studies have shown toxicity to the developing embryo (baby). It acts to decrease the level of estrogen and that might lead to miscarriage. ...Read more
Been having pregnancy like symptoms. Took femara (letrozole) about 3 weeks ago, had blood test for progesterone day 21 level, came back. 4 and had ultrasound done which said I ovulated. Could I be pregnant, be having ectopic pregnancy, or miscarrying?

Baby fetus growing: That's a big baby fetus already, maybe 5-6 inches in size. Don't want to destroy baby fetuses that size unless there is an enormously important reason such as a big birth defect, a case of rape, or the mother's health is endangered by pregnancy.

Maybe: The data is unclear on this (my opinion), but in general, it wouldn't cause a miscarriage. It is not a medication that we recommend people take just because you have nothing better to do, though, so I assume you are/were on it because of possible exposure (travel to an endemic area), in which case, it is highly recommended and way less dangerous than malaria, so you should still take it. ...Read more
