Unfortunately, there are some side effects that are related to fertility drugs. If you are considering taking them, it is best to learn more about the fertility drugs so that you can determine if they are the right option for you.

Multiple births

One of the biggest concerns that women have when they are taking fertility drugs is the chance that they will become pregnant with more than one baby. This is actually caused when the drugs cause the woman’s body to release more than one egg at a time.

Some fertility treatments, which are often coupled with fertility drugs, also increase the chances of becoming pregnant with multiple babies. While many couples are happy to become pregnant with multiple babies, there are actually additional health concerns related with this type of pregnancy.

Increased Pregnancy Symptoms

Another issue that some women have noticed when they use fertility drugs to become pregnant is an increase in the severity of their pregnancy symptoms. They may find they are more irritable than normal, even before they become pregnant.

After you do become pregnant, experiencing strong morning sickness or other normal pregnancy-related symptoms is a possibility. However, this is something that will vary from one woman to the next. Some women who take fertility drugs notice no changes in their pregnancy symptoms.

Birth Defects

While it is rare, some women become pregnant with babies that have birth defects after they have taken fertility drugs. For the most part, this usually occurs when the fertility drugs are taken while the woman is pregnant, but still unaware of her condition. This is actually a pretty dangerous situation, and you will want to be careful when you are taking fertility treatments.

Makes sure you are taking a pregnancy test each month at the appropriate time, even if you are not experiencing any symptoms. This is something you should do before you begin taking any type of fertility drug for your new cycle.

There are some natural options that will help you avoid these adverse side effects. They come in the way of supplements that are available over the counter. Unfortunately, these supplements are not nearly as effective as fertility drugs and can take some time to work. To determine which option is best for you, make sure you talk to your doctor about all of your options.
