Clomid is prescribed to women with ovulatory disorder so that they can conceive. Clomid is particularly effective in treating polycystic amenorrhea-galactorrhea syndrome, ovary syndrome (Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome), post-oral-contraceptive amenorrhea, psychogenic amenorrhea, and some cases of secondary amenorrhea of unknown cause in female patients.
Each patient should begin treatment with a modest dose of Clomid, typically 50 mg daily (one tablet) for 5 days. If a patient doesn't ovulate when taking a cyclical dose of 50 mg of Clomid, the dose may be increased. If aberrant sensitivity to pituitary gonadotropin is detected, a lower dosage or shorter treatment time is typically indicated.
