If you are advised 2 tabs of letroz a day, then both need to be taken at once, not twice a day.
The tablet increases the no. of follicles in ovary and grows them. With serial monitoring by ultrasound starting from 11 th day of your periods, the size of the dominant follicle is monitored and one inj. of hCG is given to trigger ovulation, the evidence of which is again noted on ultrasound. Once confirmed that ovulation has occurred, you will be advised intercourse on alternate days. The time of ovulation cannot be predicted. It has to be monitored on scan.

welcome to hcm
letrozole will cause more number of eggs to get ready at time of ovulation. the increase in number of eggs may increase the chances of would be suggested to get a alternate day or daily ultrasound to identify the date of ovulation and then intercourse should be timed accordingly .
letrozole will not change the date of ovulation. so unless you have regular cycles, it is better to do ultrasound and find date of ovulation.
hope this is helpful
