Clomiphene is used to cause ovulation in women with certain medical conditions (such as polycystic ovary syndrome) that prevent naturally occurring ovulation.
Clomiphene may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
This medication is used to treat infertility in women. It works by stimulating an increase in the amount of hormones that support the growth and release of a mature egg (ovulation). This medication is not recommended for women whose ovaries no longer make eggs properly (primary pituitary or ovarian failure).

How it works?
clomiphene blocks the hormone estrogen from interacting with the pituitary gland. When estrogen interacts with the pituitary gland, less luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) are produced.
This leads to a decrease in testosterone and therefore decreased sperm production. Because clomiphene blocks estrogen’s interaction with the pituitary gland, there’s an increase in LH, FSH, and testosterone in the body.
Common clomiphene side effects may include:
● flushing (warmth, redness, or tingly feeling);
● breast pain or tenderness;
● headache; or
● breakthrough bleeding or spotting.
Do not use clomiphene if you are already pregnant.
You should not use clomiphene if you have: liver disease, unexplained abnormal vaginal bleeding, an uncontrolled adrenal gland or thyroid disorder, an ovarian cyst (unrelated to polycystic ovary syndrome), or if you are pregnant.
Optimal dosing in males hasn’t been established. The dose given can range from 12.5 to 400 milligrams (mg) per day.
A recent review recommends a starting dosage of 25 mg three days per week and then slowly titrating — or adjusting the dosage — until the dose is 50 mg per day as needed.
Clomiphene is typically used as an infertility treatment in females. It’s not approved by the FDA for use in males, but it’s often prescribed off-label for the treatment of male infertility.
Taking clomiphene can lead to an increase in testosterone and sperm count. Studies on its efficacy in males have had mixed results.
