Depends: Ask the doctor who wrote for the Clomid. The Fertilaid comes in three different types from their website. There is Fertilaid, Boost counter, and Motility. Since it contains L-carnitine an amino acid, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants seems OK to use. I think OK but check w the Clomid prescriber.

Femara/Letrozole: If Clomid (clomiphene) is not effective, Femara is sometimes prescribed in much the same way as clomid (clomiphene). For some women it is more effective.
