Clomid, Infertility and Ovulation Induction
Clomid (clomiphene, clomiphene citrate) is among the most well-know and frequently prescribed of all fertility drugs. Clomid is taken orally and is considered a "first line" prescription fertility drug for dealing with infertility issues. Clomid is so widely prescribed that you may even find a "Clomid Club" on many preconception forums and communities. Clomid is used predominately for inducing ovulation in women with ovulatory disorders like anovulation, PCOS, and other infertility symptoms.

Prescription Drugs and Herbal Supplements for Infertility
Fertility drugs are categorized under two rubrics (oral or injectible). Clomiphene citrate (Clomid or Serophene) falls into the first category and infertility medications like Humegon, Pergonal, Repronex, Fertinex, Follistim and Gonal-F fall in to the latter category. This injectable medication category is typically referred to as gonadotropins (PergonalR, HumegonR, RepronexR, FollistimR, Gonal-FR ) and are designed to stimulate the ovary to produce many follicles each cycle.

Luteal Phase Defect (LPD) and Infertility
The Luteal Phase is the time period beginning with the day after ovulation and running through the remainder of your menstrual cycle. A luteal phase defect (LPD) is defined as a short luteal phase: a luteal phase that is under 10 days is considered a "luteal phase defect". Luteal phase defects may decrease the chances of conception and/or increase the chances of miscarriage very early in pregnancy.

Is Infertility a Woman's Problem? Not al all! While fertility issues have historically been the "fault" of women, modern science reveals that men are just as likely to face infertility issues. And male fertility is just as complex as female fertility... Read about sperm health and male fertility.

Fertility Supplements: A New Era in Infertility Therapy
In every field of medicine, nutritional supplementation has come to play a central role in our daily health regimen. Now more than ever, nutritional supplements have taken center stage in the realms of fertility health and infertility therapy. Validated by science, new fertility-enhancing supplements are leading to dramatic increases in conception rates and providing a healthful alternative (or complement) to conventional infertility treatments.
