Ovarian stimulation with the aromatase inhibitor letrozole has been proposed as one of the treatments for unexplained female infertility. In a multi-center study funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Development, ovarian stimulation with letrozole resulted in a significantly lower frequency of multiple gestation (i.e., twins or triplets) but also a lower frequency of live birth, as compared with gonadotropin but not with clomiphene.
Aromex (Aromasin) is an aromatase inhibitor. It works by stopping the production of estrogen.
Based on findings in animals, male and female fertility may be impaired by treatment with Aromasin.
Aromasin tablets contain the active ingredient exemestane, which is a type of medicine called an aromatase inhibitor. Exemestane is also available without a brand name, ie as the generic medicine. It works by preventing the action of an enzyme in the body called the aromatase enzyme.
AROMASIN may cause decreased fertility in males and females. Talk to your doctor to get consultation about Aromasin.
