Clomid infertility drug linked to birth defects

What is Clomid?

Clomid is a fertility drug prescribed to women that do not produce ova (eggs) to help them get pregnant.  It was approved by the FDA in 1967. Evidence shows Clomid can stay in the mother’s system for the first few weeks of pregnancy, which might put the baby at risk of exposure.

The FDA has classified this drug as a Category X drug.  Category X means the drug is known to cause birth defects.
