Several small infertility studies have compared Clomid to Femara. Some of these studies showed that Femara is more effective than Clomid, while other studies showed that they are equally effective. A few studies have also suggested that Femara may be effective in cases in which women have not ovulated while taking Clomid (these women are referred to as "Clomid-resistant" or "clomiphene-resistant").
Final Thoughts on Using Infertility and Femara
Femara appears to be a promising infertility treatment that may be an option for women in whom Clomid has not been successful. Most healthcare providers view Femara as a second choice, however, using it only when Clomid is not working for a woman. It is important to know that Femara is much more expensive than Clomid and has not been studied as much as Clomid has for this use.
