Fertility Drugs

Getting pregnant is not always easy. There are several types of fertility drugs that can aid in the process.

Clomid and conception star
If you have been trying to conceive for a while, your doctor may give you a prescription for Clomid or Serophene (clomiphene). Clomiphene stimulates ovulation, and even if you already ovulate, it may help.

Guaifenesin and conception star
Guaifenesin is old as the hills as far as drugs as concerned, and it may help you conceive if you've been told you have hostile cervical secretions.

IUI and conception star
If you're going through assisted reproduction to conceive, you probably will start with IUI, or intrauterine insemination. It's a very non-invasive procedure that can get you to your goal of conception.

Metformin and conception star
Metformin (brand name Glucophage) is approved for type II diabetes. Like many drugs, though, it has found other uses besides that for which it is approved. One such use is for women with PCOS who wish to get pregnant.

Progesterone and conception star
Progesterone is essential for implantation and pregnancy. How much do you need, and if you have to supplement, what is the best way?
