fertility drugs

Drugs used to treat INFERTILITY, usually by the induction of ovulation. The drugs clomiphene (clomifene), tamoxifen and cyclofenil are used to treat infertility due to failure to produce ova. These and other similar fertility drugs often result in multiple ovulation and multiple pregnancies may result.
