I have heard of studies that link clomid to birth defects and other ailments. What is your take on these studies?

The sample size for studies like these have historically been very small, so it’s hard to draw conclusions from them. The population used in these studies usually has fertility issues, medical issues, and advanced age — so right off the bat, you are looking at women who are very different from the general population — so the factor-link structure is poor for a study like this.
