Fertility Pills


Visit the Fertility Community, Fertility Blogs, Fertility Forums and Fertility Directory websites for infertility support, information, community and resources.

Fertility pills are drugs prescribed by physicians to help increase fertility. These may include:

  • Clomid and Serophene (Clomiphene)
  • Parlodel (Bromocriptine)
The purpose of these drugs is to promote ovulation.

Unfortunately, some fertility pills produce unwanted side effects in addition to the emotional upheaval infertility issues can cause. For example:

  • Possible side effects of Clomiphene: mild swelling of the ovaries, stomach pain, breast tenderness, insomnia, nausea and vomiting, blurred vision, headaches, fatigue, irritability, depression, weight gain, and, in rarer cases, ovarian cysts. It can also increase the chance for multiple birth.
  • Possible side effects of Bromocriptine: nausea, dizziness, fatigue, diarrhea, and headaches.
(Gonadotropins is another fertility drug however it is administered as an injection, rather than in pill form.)
