What Fertility Pills are There Other than Clomid?
Although Clomid is the most popular fertility pill, there are also other options that you can consider as well. One of the most popular alternatives to Clomid is Letrozole. This is also taken orally and is very similar to Clomid. However, it is rather new to the market and is not used as often as Clomid.
One benefit that Letrozole has over Clomid is that it doesn’t appear to affect cervical mucus the same way that Clomid is known for. Some of the side effects that are also common with Clomid are also lessened with this pill as well.
Tamoxifen is also a pill that can be used to increase fertility. However, it has not been regulated by the FDA and is not used very regularly. It can, however, be used along with other fertility pills in the hopes of increased its effectiveness.
While Clomid is still the most popular fertility pill on the market, there are some others out there that have been effective as well. In fact, there are also some over the counter supplements that have helped women become pregnant too. It is best to talk to your doctor about all of your options so that you can choose the right one for you.
