Many people dealing with infertility decide to take pills as their first actual treatment, and for most of them, this option works very well, because the pills act efficiently to stimulate ovulation in different ways. Moreover, they are safe and able to increase the chances for multiple births.

Now, if you want to start taking such pills, here are three of the most commonly used and preferred ones; this information is geared to help you get to know them better, so that you may be able to choose one that is suitable for you.

Clomid & Serophene

Clomiphene, also known by the names Clomid (most frequently) and Serophene, is the most common of all pills. It acts by stimulating hormones in order for them to encourage your ovaries to release an egg on a monthly basis. This happens because Clomid induces the sensation that your body’s estrogen levels are low which, in turn, leads your body to excite the formation of two important hormones: the follicle stimulating one (FSH) and the luteinizing one (LH) – both acting on the ovaries and prompting the release of the eggs.


Gonadotropins are another favorite pill for fighting infertility, having almost the same effects as the one mentioned earlier – stimulating the production of the two hormones, FSH and LH. Unlike Clomid, however, Gonadotropins, stimulate your ovaries and eggs directly. This is a very natural method. They can be administered as an injection, as well, for the period of 12 days – a process that will simply tell your ovaries that it is time to release the recently developed egg.


Bromocriptine acts directly on the hormonal source that causes your ovaries to stop releasing their eggs on a monthly basis. It is generally applied to women who have too much prolactin, which is known to reduce the estrogen levels in the body, (estrogen hormones being responsible for having a regular cycle and getting pregnant). Bromocriptine can also be found in the form of vaginal capsules.

The examples above are just some of the most commonly known types of pills you can find. There are plenty more options available on the market. All you have to do is go ask a pharmacist, or even better, consult your doctor to find out which one is best for you. Whichever tablet you will pick, you will likely not be disappointed, as fertility pills are still the preferred and primary cure for women suffering from various ovulation syndromes. But with the possibility of getting pregnant also comes the very real possibility of twins – as fertility drugs increase your chances of twins by a dizzying rate!
