How do fertility drugs work?

Under normal circumstances, ovulation occurs once a month when a ripened egg which is ready to be fertilised is released from the ovaries. For couples who are trying to conceive, regular ovulation is incredibly important as this is when a woman is most fertile. If a woman isn’t ovulating properly, fertility drugs can be prescribed in order to boost the natural system and increase the chances of successful conception.
