Clomid or Femara: Which One Is Better?
Clomiphene citrate (Clomid, Serophene) is an oral medication that has been used for induction of ovulation for almost 40 years. Over the last 20 – 25 years it also has been used for superovulation to increase the chance of conceiving in women who are ovulatory. Commonly, intrauterine insemination (IUI) is combined with this medication.
Clomiphene is a very weak estrogen that attaches to the estrogen receptor in the hypothalamic-pituitary area.
