How does it work?
Taking clomiphene causes the pituitary gland in the brain to release improved levels of luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). As a result, the ovarian follicle grows and ovulation occurs.
Applications Or where it is used:
Clomiphene is used to induce ovulation (production of egg) in females who do not produce eggs and wish to conceive. A class of medications known as ovulatory stimulants includes clomiphene. Similar to estrogen, this hormone stimulates the ovaries to release eggs.
How to use:
Clomiphene is a tablet that can be taken orally. Usually, it is taken every day for 5 days, beginning about the fifth day of the cycle. Take it at around the same time every day to make it easier to remember.
Dosage of usage:
It is recommended that the patient is treated with a low dose, 50 mg daily (1 tablet), for five days. Patients who do not ovulate after taking CLOMID 50 mg cyclically should only have the dosage increased. Patients with conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome who are suspected to be sensitive to pituitary gonadotropin should receive a low dosage or short course of treatment.
Below are some of the side effects of Clomifene Citrate:
