Serophene and Birth Defects

Serophene (clomiphene) is a fertility medication that helps women with ovarian get pregnancy. It is also very dangerous to a developing baby when it is used just before or during pregnancy.

Serophene is a “Pregnancy Category X” drug, which is the FDA’s strongest warning about the risk of birth defects. In clinical trials, it was associated with a wide range of defects affecting the heart, skull, brain, abdomen, and more.

Serophene remains active in the body for more than a month, which can expose a developing baby to a risk of birth defects during early pregnancy.

The problem is that many women on Serophene do not realize they are pregnant right away. The longer she continues taking Serophene, the higher the risk of birth defects.

Our attorneys are investigating lawsuits involving:

  • Neural tube defects (spina bifida, anencephaly)
  • Heart defects
  • Skull defects
  • Gastrointestinal defects (omphalocele)
  • Hypospadia
  • Cleft lip/palate
  • Limb defects
  • And more

What Studies Have Linked Serophene and Birth Defects?

The Prescribing Information for Serophene lists a wide range of birth defects and fetal risks — including up to a 20% risk of miscarriage (spontaneous abortion).

Women who used clomiphene at home to induce ovulation were three times more likely to have a baby with a birth defect, according to a study published in 2012 by the New England Journal of Medicine.

In 2010, the journal Human Reproduction published a study linking clomiphene with higher rates of several major birth defects, based on data collected from 1997-2005.

According to the warning issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), clomiphene may increase the risk of the following birth defects:
