Clomid (generic name: clomiphene citrate) is an orally administered, non-steroidal, ovulatory stimulant. It is indicated for the treatment of ovulatory dysfunction in women desiring pregnancy. Impediments to achieving pregnancy must be excluded or adequately treated before beginning CLOMID therapy.


Clomiphene is not allowed to be taken by women: who are pregnant, have ovarian cysts, or experience abnormal vaginal bleeding. Clomiphene has a potential of causing ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, which is presented with multiple ovarian cysts. The mechanism of action of clomiphene includes cometing with estrogen for the estrogen-binding sites which in the end causes a surge of pre-ovulatory gonadotropin surge leading to ovulation.


You might want to visit your gynecologist for additional information about the effect of clomiphene.
