thanks for your query.
PCOD is a condition which interferes with normal ovulation.
Many follicles are present in the ovary, but none matures into a follicle and ovulates.
Hence, assuming your laparoscopy was normal, and both tubes were open, your infertility specialist is right in prescribing you ubiphene.
It contains clomiphene citrate, which stimulates the ovaries to produce mature follicles and hence is a treatment modality for PCOD.
For women whose only infertility problem is anovulation, up to 80% of patients will ovulate using this medication and 50% of those will conceive . Clomiphene may be combined with intrauterine insemination to boost the success of the medication by placing the sperm and egg in closer proximity to each other.
All the best.
