Clomid is otherwise known as Clomiphene citrate. It is a medicine taken orally, and it is used to treat infertility problems in females. Clomid stimulates the pituitary gland to produce an increased amount of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) to initiate ovulation. Clomid can be used in women having problems getting pregnant due to polycystic ovarian disease (PCOS).
