Clomiphene is an oral medication indicated for the treatment of infertility in women who do not ovulate. It induced ovulation in women who do not produce eggs but wish to become pregnant. Clomiphene has been used since the 1960s to induce ovulation.
Clomiphene is a type of medication known as anti-estrogen. It stimulates ovulation by blocking the action of estrogen. It blocks the estrogen receptor in the hypothalamus responsible for sending messages to the pituitary glands that make it stop releasing the hormone that controls the development and the release of an egg.
This medication is a non-steroidal estrogen that results in a more prolonged interaction with the binding proteins for the estrogen receptor. The anti-estrogen effect controls and regulates the release of regulatory hormone from the hypothalamus which allows for the normal follicle development and ovulation.
