Clomiphene citrate, commonly known as Clomid, is an oral medication that increases a woman’s chances of becoming pregnant. The drug works by stimulating an increase in hormones that support the growth and release of mature eggs. The FDA has labeled Clomid as a Category X drug, which means that it is known to cause birth defects. Clomid’s status as a Category X drug indicates that the risks may outweigh the benefits.
Clomid is manufactured by Sanofi-aventis US and carries the active ingredient clomiphene citrate. Clomid was first introduced to the US market in 1967 and is available only by prescription from an OB/GYN. Clomid may stay in a woman’s blood stream for an extended period of time and be present during the critical first trimester of an infant’s growth. The drug may cause significant developmental problems, resulting in birth defects.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) published a study in 2010 linking the drug to severe birth defects. The New England Journal of Medicine released another study in 2012 stating that women who take Clomid have a 3x higher risk of having a child with a serious birth defect. In the majority of cases, the mothers were not informed of such a high risk.
