Clomid (clomiphene) is a medication to increase egg production in infertility.
Femara is a medication used to attempt to keep breast cancer recurrences from happening. Totally different medications.

In brief: Similar
Clomiphene (clomid) and Letrozole (femara) are similar in their effects, though they have a different mechanism of action.
Success rates are about the same, and side effects are fewer with letrozole. Letrozole is not fda approved for use in fertility, but many physicians find it safe and effective.
