Clomiphene Citrate (Clomid)

Clomid is one of the more commonly used oral fertility medications. It is used to stimulate ovulation in a female who has infrequent ovulation or absence of ovulation.

Clomid works on the brain by tricking it to believe the estrogen level is low. This then causes the pituitary gland to release Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and Lutenizing Hormone (LH). These hormones stimulate follicular production (egg production) and the release or ovulation of the mature egg(s).

What are the side effects?
Abdominal or pelvic discomfort, bloating, nausea/vomiting, breast discomfort, blurred vision, headache, irregular spotting.

Femara (Letrozole)

Femara is an oral medication in a class of drugs called aromatase inhibitors. Femara was originally used to treat certain types of breast cancer. Its function is to block the production of estrogen, causing the release of FSH and LH. When used for fertility, this release of FSH stimulates the production of follicles.

What are the side effects?
Hot flashes, headache, loss of appetite, general pain, weakness, nausea, or diarrhea.

Oral Stimulation Medication

Tamoxifen (Nolvadex)

Tamoxifen was initially developed for the treatment of fertility, however, because of its effects on estrogen levels, it is most commonly used for the prevention of breast cancer. By blocking the actions of estrogen, FSH is released which stimulates the production of follicles.

What are the side effects?
Hot flashes, nausea, fatigue, mood swings, depression, headache, hair thinning, constipation, dry skin, or loss of libido.
