Clomid is a synthetic chemical whose chemical name is Clomiphene citrate. It is not a fertility drug per se, but it is given only to induce ovulation by fooling your body into believing that there is less estrogen. This leads to an increased production of a hormone called GnRH, causing the pituitary to pump out more of another hormone called FSH and LH, thus inducing ovulation. Clomid is usually given for 5 days, starting on cycle days 3-5, and most women will usually ovulate 5-9 days after the last dose of Clomid.
