Infertility can be treated with a variety of prescription medications. Clomiphene citrate comes in pill form and helps induce ovulation. About 80% of infertile women who were treated with clomiphene citrate were able to ovulate, and half of them achieved pregnancy over multiple cycles of medication.
Because it is inexpensive and well tolerated, it is often used as an initial treatment in women who have difficulty ovulating. Clomid increases your chance of becoming pregnant by releasing more than one egg at a time. This sometimes results in multiple births.
