Answer

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC) recommend clomiphene citrate as first-line therapy to stimulate ovulation when fertility is desired. [3, 4, 6]

An alternative first line therapy to stimulate ovulation is letrozole. [58]
