There are several different types of fertility drugs. Each offer a variety of success rates, side effects and timeframe to use. For the most part, determining the best fertility drug will depend on the medical condition that is causing you to have trouble conceiving.

One of the most popular fertility drugs out there is called Clomid. This drug is taken orally and is intended to help women who are struggling to ovulate. Clomid helps to force the body to ovulate. Most of the time, this drug is taken along with another drug that helps to force the body to create a mature egg.
After a woman takes Clomid and finds that it is not effective, she will most often move on to injectable forms of fertility drugs. One common option is hCG. This drug is taken for women who are struggling to produce healthy eggs that have the ability to become fertilized.
FSH is another type of hormone that is given to women. It is used when the woman is not able to produce and release eggs at all. Drugs like Gonal-F help to stimulate the ovaries to grow eggs so they are ready to be fertilized when they are released.
hMG is another hormone that is given to women through drugs like Menopar and Repronex. Along with prompting the body to stimulate ovaries to produce eggs, it also affects the LH hormone. Both of these items are important to producing healthy eggs that can be fertilized.
GnRH is also a hormone that is given to women via injections. Drugs that are used for this hormone are typically Zoladex, Antagon, and Factrel. All of these drugs can be used to help affect multiple issues that women have when they are struggling to conceive. Depending on your particular condition, these drugs have pretty significant benefits and results.
Unfortunately, many of these drugs have some negative side effects to be concerned about. For example, some women who take these drugs make it easier to become pregnant with twins or multiple children. In addition to this birth defects and concerns for your pregnancy are also concerns you will want to take into consideration.
The best way to determine exactly which fertility drug is right for you, you should discuss all of your options with your fertility doctor. Along with discussing your conditions with your doctor, you should also discuss the possible side effects that you must be concerned with. Doing so will help you determine which drug is the best option for you and offers the minimal amount of side effects.
