In brief: Gonadotropins

- aromatase inhibitiors (letrozole) can be used as an alternative to Clomid as an ovulation induction agent in women with pcos - gonadotropins (bravelle, menopur, gonal f, (follitropin alfa) follistim) are injectable ovulation stimulation medications, which can be used for IUI or ivf cycles.
They are more potent and more costly than clomid.

In brief: Pills and Shots

Letrozole is another common pill.
Many women use fertility shots as well. They all contain basically the same hormones but they go by different names.
