I have taken clomid and letrozole (femara) the side effects on femara are far less then clomid. I really didn't feel like I was taking any drugs at all. I took 5mg. I have not conceived...yet, but am hopeful. Good luck there are many who have PCOS and still have a baby!
Me(36), DH(37), TTC 20 months,3 rounds clomid, 3 IUIs with HCG trigger/clomid all BFNs, now trying naturally

I have PCOS, too. The only dose of Clomid that worked was 150mg, and that only worked sporadically.

Femara has been working for me for the past two months. I've never O'd more than one month in a row. Side effects are next to nothing on Femara. They were horrid on Clomid. I've been told PCOS patients generally respond better to Femara than Clomid. Good luck!
