Brief Answer: LETROZOLE IS SAFER. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to us with your health concern. Both Letrozole and Clomiphene citrate are comparable. However, letrozole is considered slightly more safe. It is also useful for women who do not initially respond to clomiphene citrate. In addition, if both fail to induce ovulation, injections of gonadotropins or gonadotropin antagonists can be used. A lot depends on the patient profile, as the decision is highly individulaized.
