Thanks for writing to us, Ovafar (clomiphene) is the drug of first choice for inducing ovulation i.e growing eggs. It is cheap, effective, easily available and well tolerated. It is also used for superovulating normal women to help them grow more eggs. Clomiphene is an antiestrogen and it acts by "fooling " the pituitary into believing that estrogen levels in the body are low as a result of which the pituitary starts producing more FSH and LH - the gonadotropin hormones which in turn leads to stimulation of the ovaries. Only women who produce estrogen will respond to clomiphene. The starting dose is one tablet (50 mg) a day for five consecutive days. The first tablet can be taken on day 2, 3, 4 or 5 of the cycle - this is usually decided by your doctor and depends on the length of your menstrual cycle. It is not enough to just take clomiphene but is equally important to monitor the response as well. Hence will recommend you consult your clinician and avoid any self medications with right dosage. I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. Thanks
