On Letrzole TTC continuous spotting? Will be stop me from getting pregnant?

Hello!

Just wondering if anyone can help! Im on my 2nd lot of Letrzole (after failed Clomid). Last month it appeared to have worked meaning I had a bleed on my own therefore I ovulated. However I was impatient and only waited just over a week after missed period. I took Norethisterone to induce a bleed, however started spotting the day after my 1st tablet (which could have been the start of my natural period if I didn't interfere). This led to me spotting for 1 week before my actually period for a week.

I have been spotting (light pink) on and off (mostly on). I have seen my consultant recently and we put it down to bleeding after sex which he said was okay as long as my smear was okay (which it is). He did say he would rather it wasn't happening but nothing we can do about it.

However I've not had sex for the last 3 days and I started spotting (again) 2 days ago and it hasn't stopped. Anyone else experienced this and will it impact upon me getting pregnant?

Thanks in advance!

Hi JadeH92. It seems as if you might have a problem with your luteal phase of your menstrual cycle and you are not building up your lining properly, causing you to spot. Maybe time to speak to your specialist for his/her advice. Good luck! Diane

I will mention this thank you. I have just been to see a separate consultant following an MRI I had to be told I have Adenomyosis and Fibroids to go with my Endometriosis and PCOS. Do you know if it could be to do with any of these other conditions? Thanks again!

Hi JadeH92. This spotting could be to do with the adenomyosis, as it creates several layers of endometrium to shed. You need to speak to someone who is a specialist in adenomyosis. He/she would be able to advise on the fibroids and endometriosis too. Hope you don’t have to wait too long to discuss your options. Diane

Thank you! The Adenomyosis/Endometriosis specalist said carry on with Letrozle and said he didn't want to operate because of us trying and a referral to an IVF clinic incase the tablets don't work (6 month waiting list, but it's NHS so can't really complain). Looks like just a waiting game I suppose. Thank you for all your help! Xxx
