What other drugs besides Clomid (clomiphene) are used to get a woman pregnant? My wife is on 100 mg of Clomid (clomiphene) and she ovulates normally. If Clomid (clomiphene) doesn't work, will she be given a different fertility drug?

FSH Injections, IVF : If Clomid (clomiphene) alone does not work, adding IUI (intrauterine insemination) can improve Clomid (clomiphene) pregnancy rates. The next step after that would be to take fsh or injectable fertility drugs. Using these drugs in an ivf cycle is safest, but injections can also be combined with iui.

Both: Both are good options but the key question is whether or not you ovulated in response to the medication.
