In brief: No, similar success
In most studies comparing Clomid (clomiphene) and Femara the pregnancy rates are similar and neither has been found to be superior to the other. Femara for fertility is an "off-label" indication, meaning this drug was not designed for this purpose.
There are pros and cons of both Clomid (clomiphene) and Femara and they have different side effect profiles. Talk to your doctor about what is best for you.
