The Price of Ovulation

What if it were possible to eliminate hundreds of thousands of birth defects worldwide every year through the use of a little pill? What if it took no more than pregnant women ingesting a small dietary tablet throughout the first two months of pregnancy? What if this magic pill had escaped detection by the scientific community right up until its discovery less than a year ago?

What if the scientific detective that made the discovery happened to be a trial lawyer?

In a story that reads like a Hollywood script, truth trumps fiction with a revelation that will leave scientists and physicians throughout the world wondering how such an important piece of research could have escaped their detection. Yet as more and more researchers examine the hard evidence presented by Terence Mix in The Price of Ovulation, their conclusions will no doubt fall in line with colleagues who have already scrutinized the hypothesis presented by the attorney and author.

Questions answered by The Price of Ovulation
that you will never hear from your fertility doctor…

  • What does the CDC know about birth defects and Clomid (clomiphene citrate) that will shock every fertility specialist in the country?
  • What 1983 FDA-mandated warning about Clomid has yet to reach your local pharmacy?
  • What did the manufacturer of Clomid conceal from the FDA over 41 years ago?
  • What is a risk of multiple pregnancy that you will not likely hear from your fertility doctor?
  • What do fertility drugs steal from your unborn baby that it vitally needs to form its organs?
  • What is the magic pill that can practically eliminate the risk of these birth defects while you continue to take fertility drugs?

These are a few of the highlights of the multi-award winning book, The Price of Ovulation, which tells the story of Terence Mix's 30-plus year battle to bring this tragic risk to the attention of the general public and ultimate discovery of a means that could potentially eliminate over 400,000 birth defects a year worldwide, including those suffered by naturally-conceived babies.
