Clomid and Serophene are two popular brand names of clomiphene citrate which are orally administered non-steroidal fertility treatments used to induce ovulation in women who have difficulty conceiving. If Clomid or Serophene are taken during pregnancy, there is an increased chance that your baby will develop birth defects. While the causes of the majority of birth defects are still unknown, in addition to a variety of genetic and/or environmental factors, experts have found that maternal exposure to the fertility drugs Clomid or Serophene during pregnancy may significantly increase the risk of serious drug-related birth defects in newborns. Birth defects are any congenital malformations or abnormalities present at birth and which negatively affects an embryo, fetus, or child’s developmental ability, functional ability, and/or health. Clomid or Serophene may cause serious physical and/or mental disabilities and even death in newborns.

- Congenital heart lesions
- Spina bifida
- Down’s syndrome
- Club foot
- Cleft lip and/or cleft palate
