How does clomiphene boost fertility?
Clomiphene (Clomid, Serophene), is known as an estrogen-blocking drug. It causes your hypothalamus and pituitary gland, located in your brain, to release hormones called GnRH (gonadotropin-releasing hormone), FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) and LH (luteinizing hormone). These hormones trigger your ovaries to make eggs. You might take it along with other fertility methods, like assisted reproductive techniques or artificial insemination.
