In brief: Yes
Although Femara (letrozole) is only fda approved for the treatment of certain types of breast cancer, it is also used off-label to stimulate ovulation in fertility treatments.
It is sometimes used in the place of clomifene (clomid) for ovarian stimulation.

It is often used in women with unexplained infertility. And also in women trying to get pregnant who have a personal history of breast cancer. Some doctors use it instead of Clomid (clomiphene) or in patients that did not respond to Clomid (clomiphene) well.
