Thanks for the query

1. Letrozol at therapeutic doses should not be harmful, it is true that it is being used in cancer patients but in your case it is being used to stimulate your ovaries
2. Treatment of PCOD is an ongoing process and cannot be cured. Symptoms and signs of it can be brought under control with treatment
3. Ovulation of each patient is different and very erratic especially in PCOD, please approach your gynaec to know the time of your ovulation

I would like to add here that in our hospital many PCOD patients have successfully conceived, it might get a little delayed, please be compliant with your treatment to have better results

I hope I was of help
