|Two common infertility therapies have been branded "worthless" by a new study.
They may also cause unpleasant side-effects, the research by the department of obstetrics and gynaecology at the University of Aberdeen found.
The treatments in question are clomifene citrate, a drug which is supposed to correct ovary dysfunction, and intra-uterine insemination (IUI), where a semen sample is delivered straight into the womb.
Both are popular because they are recommended by the National Institute for Clinical Effectiveness (Nice) and are cheaper and less invasive than IVF, but neither has been tested in a major trial before now.
