Clomiphene, omifin or clomiphene citrate is an ovulatory stimulant medication, which means that it causes the ovaries to produce eggs and release them. It is generally prescribed to women who have not been able to get pregnant because they are unable to produce eggs (in 70% of cases it has been able to work and improve ovulation cycles).
In addition, it can be prescribed to men with infertility situations. However, this component alone will not work to achieve pregnancy.
If you have been trying to get pregnant for some time and have been unsuccessful, you have probably heard of Omifin, clomiphene or clomiphene citrate, but it is very important to consider that you should not self-medicate or use it on your own.

Clomiphene is usually prescribed in tablet form to be taken by mouth and the dose may vary from person to person, so you should take the dose prescribed by your specialist. It is usually started 3 to 5 days after the start of the menstrual cycle. It should not be taken in a different dose than prescribed by the doctor and should be taken exactly as prescribed.
