I took 1 round of the drug Femara to help with pregnancy only to find out I was already 3 weeks pregnant, is there a risk to the baby or a higher risk of miscarriage?

Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query. Femara/Letrozole is a aromatase nonsteroidal inhibitor of esterogen synthesis.It is used to prevent post menopausal symptoms and is not supposed to be used during pregnancy.It would be prudent to discuss this matter with your Physician /Obstretician as the drug may potentially cause harm during pregnancy.It falls in category X and is not to be used during pregnancy.Proper monitoring may be essential during pregnancy.
