Answer:

The medications you are taken are safe and commonly used to help women become pregnant who are not ovulating. The most common side effect is ovarian discomfort related to ovulation. The risk of having twins is approximately 10%. The risk of have more than twins is very small. You should discuss with your physician your concerns about these medications and their chances of working for you.
