Welcome to HealthcareMagic
PCOS is multifactorial disorder which leads to anovulation and infertility. Try to lose weight by diet control and exercise. Get your blood sugar levels done apart from other hormonal investigations. Clomiphene ( Fertyl) is the drug to induce ovulation. It is usually started with 50 mg and dose is gradually increased till 150 mg if there is no response. It is safe for ovulation induction and rarely patient may experience few side effects. If even after dose of 150 mg you don't ovulate then you may need ovulation induction using gonadotropin injection or laparoscopic ovarian drilling. Wait for the current cycle. If you dnt ovulate this cycle then discuss your options with your doctor. Take care.

Thanks for choosing HCM.
Trust your doctor. It is quite safe when judiciously used by the doctor who is tackling your problem.
