Clomid has been on the market for over 25 years and it is often the first drug given to women who cannot get pregnant.
Clomid helps by stimulating the ovaries to produce an egg and ovulate. The exact mechanism of Clomid is not well understood, but in women who produce estrogen, it increases certain hormones (LH, FSH). This, in turn, causes the follicle to grow which triggers the LH surge and thus induces ovulation.
