Hello
Thanks for your query.
Basically Ovashield contains clomiphene citrate.
If it did not work for you , you might still give it one more try, as clomiphene is a known and successful agent for ovulation induction.
In some women with PCOD, letrozole ( aromatase inhibitor ) is more effective than clomiphene citrate in inducing ovulation and achieving a pregnancy.
Letrozole is banned, but you can consult your doctor for using Anastrozole, which is equally effective, and the same class as Letrozole.
All the best.
