Brief description Clomiphene citrate (CC) has been a first line treatment for female infertility internationally since the 1960’s. However, safety studies using routine prescribing practices were never performed, and numerous data sources now indicate that CC is associated with major adverse outcomes if the fetus is inadvertently exposed. We are linking prescription data to perinatal outcomes to confirm how CC is associated with adverse events so as to inform prescriber and practice change.
