Am I more likely to get pregnant if I take a fertility drug such as ClomidNo, at least not if you take it alone, without other interventions, according to a new study by Scottish researchers in the British Medical Journal.

Neither
Clomid (clomiphene citrate) - which is an ovulation stimulator - nor artificially inseminating women with sperm injected directly in the uterus, resulted in more live births than simply continuing to try to have babies the old-fashioned way, concluded the study. It was led by Siladitya Bhattacharya, a professor of reproductive medicine at the University of Aberdeen.

The study involved nearly 600 women who were unable to conceive for more than two years. These women had normal
ovulatory cycles, open and healthy fallopian tubes and their partners had normally functioning sperm.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
