Fertomid is used to induce ovulation (egg production). It increases the chance of pregnancy in women who are having trouble conceiving. It works similarly to estrogen, a female hormone that causes eggs to develop in the ovaries and be released. It is usually taken once a day for 5 days, starting on the fifth day of the menstrual period. Women who do not have menstrual cycles can begin taking it on any convenient day. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor to explain any part you do not understand. Take Fertomid exactly as directed. Do not take more or less than prescribed by your doctor.
Fertomid may cause side effects. Tell your doctor if any of these side effects are severe or do not go away:
enlargement of the ovaries
