In brief: Pregnancy, multiples
Fertility drugs are sometimes the only choice for women that do not ovulate and wish to conceive.
Women with unexplained infertility can roughly double their pregnancy rates with fertility medications alone. The two major risks in all women taking fertility drugs are multiple pregnancy (twins, triplets, quads) and ovarian hyperstimulation, both serious and preventable.

In brief: Depends
Fertility drugs can often be a very effective treatment for infertility.
However, most fertility drugs can increase the risk for multiple pregnancy. Twins, triplets and above can be very risky for mother and babies. One approach is to use fertility drugs, create embryos and put one embryo in - this way you get the "pros" of the fertility drugs without the biggest "con". www.sbivf.com.
