Fertility Drugs

To a woman with infertility issues, doctors may prescribe medicine to help get pregnant. These medicines are called fertility drugs, work by causing  body to release hormones that trigger or regulate ovulation, the release of an egg from your ovary.

The drugs are typically the first choice in fertility treatment because of their low cost and relative convenience.

How Fertility Drugs works?

Injected or taken in pill form, the drugs release hormones that induce ovulation to boost egg production and make the uterus more receptive to embryo implantation.

Fertility Drugs are best for women who don't ovulate regularly or who have partners with very poor sperm quality.

Success Rates of Fertility Drugs

40 to 45 percent of women who take the pills and ovulate get pregnant; as many as 50 percent of women who ovulate as a result of the shots get pregnant.

Side effects of Fertility Drugs

Possible bloating
Hot flashes

Side effects are worse with the shots, and include risk of multiple births, premature delivery, and formation of large ovarian cysts.
