Clomid is by far the most popular oral medication. It is usually the one doctors will turn to first when women are struggling to conceive. This is a drug that helps force the women to ovulate. A lack of ovulation is something that causes many women to struggle to conceive. Because of this, Clomid is extremely useful and many women don’t have to go further than taking this drug to become pregnant.


There are many types of these types of injectable hormones. Some of the most popular drugs in this category are Novarel, Pregnyl, Ovidrel and Profasi. These drugs are usually taken alongside other fertility drugs. They are taken to trigger the ovaries to release a mature egg. This is especially helpful for women who are not ovulating or who’s eggs are not mature when they are released.


For women who are struggling to produce healthy eggs, this is often a hormone that is given. Some of the most popular drugs are Gonal-F, Bravelle, Follistim and Fertinex. These drugs affect how the egg grows in the ovaries. They can also be drugs you take along with other fertility drugs that affect when and how the eggs are released.


These drugs affect both FSH and LH. As before mentioned, FSH determines how the egg grows in the ovaries. When eggs are produced mature and healthy, they will have a better chance of being fertilize. LH is also important because it affects the growth of the uterine lining. When the uterine lining is not thick and healthy, it could be extremely difficult for the embryo to attach so that a pregnancy can occur.

One of the downsides of these fertility drugs is that there tend to be side effects related to them. Because of this, many women are hesitant to take prescription fertility drugs. Luckily, there are some over-the-counter supplements you can take that work similarly. However, some of the options out there don’t work well with other medications you may be taking, so you will need to discuss them with your doctor before you begin trying them.
