    The term "injectables" describes a group of medications frequently used in the treatment of infertility. Oral drugs such as Clomid stimulate the ovaries indirectly by tricking the brain into thinking there is less estrogen in the body than there actually is. As a result, the body produces more "follicle stimulating hormone" (FSH) which in turn stimulates follicle production on the ovaries. In contrast, injectables actually contain FSH, so they stimulate the ovaries directly.
