PROMIFEN (CLOMIPHENE CITRATE – CLOMID). is a long trusted oral medication relied upon for its safety, effectiveness and relatively low cost. PROMIFEN (CLOMIPHENE CITRATE – CLOMID). is used to treat absent or irregular menstrual cycles (ovulation induction), to address a condition called luteal phase defect by increasing progesterone secretion during the second half of the cycle and to make menstrual cycle lengths more predictable, thus improving the timing of intercourse or artificial insemination. Clomiphene may also be used to enhance ovulation in women who are already ovulating (ovulation augmentation).
