Contraceptives and Ovulation Induction

Patient

Doctor

A:   Regestrne (I presume) is a contraceptive pill. To answer your question, you will not get pregnant if you are taking it regestrone. Letrozole, on the other hand, will stimulate the ovary to release an egg. Your doctor might have his reasons why he/she is prescribing you Regestrone and Letrozole. Maybe he/she wants to suppress the ovulation (relase of an egg by the ovary) for a certain time then induce ovulation after. I think it has something to do with the timing. You should discuss this with your doctor so you will understand better. I hope this helps.
