When the egg matures and releases high estrogen, brain starts releasing LH that trigger ovulation.Clomid (clomiphene) is estr receptr.How come estr surge possibl?

Question?: Each month, fsh is produced that recruits eggs which produce estrogen. The rise in estrogen eventually triggers the lh surge and ovulation. Clomid (clomiphene) is a weak "anti-estrogen" and tricks the brain into over-stimulating the ovaries and increases changes of ovulation, to put it simply. Your question is worded poorly, but i hope this is a good answer for you. ...Read more

After egg matures in ovary, does it releases estrogen to signal brain to release LH even on Clomid (clomiphene) cycle? Or the process different on clomid (clomiphene)?

Once the corpus: Luteum (maturing egg) starts producing estrogen, it feedbacks to the hypothalamus and pituitary gland to inhibit gnrh/lh/fsh production. Clomid (clomiphene) selectively inhibits the estrogen receptor in the hypothalmus which 'tricks' the body to release more fsh, which inturn causes growth of more ovarian follicles, and subsequently rupture of follicles resulting in ovulation to increase fertility. ...Read more

Does lack of hormones to develop an ovarian cyst cause infertility?

Does lack of hormones to develop an ovarian cyst cause infertility?

If no follicle, yes: Ovarian cysts are very common but not 'normal'. I am guessing you mean lack of hormones to develop an ovarian follicle - a cyst-like structure that releases an egg (ovulates). Some women don't ovulate because of low FSH / lh hormones (may be due to stress, exercise, eating disorders, underweight), some have high FSH & low egg supply. Low hormones makes it harder to conceive. See a fertility md. ...Read more
