In brief: Three uses

1. Women with irregular cycles don't ovulate (release an egg) every month.
Depending on the cause such as pcos, Clomid (clomiphene) can help you to ovulate, may be combined with metformin if pcos. 2. Women who ovulate regularly can release 2 or 3 eggs in a month with Clomid (clomiphene) increasing chance of pregnancy with 5-10% risk of twins, 1% triplets. 3. Clomid (clomiphene) challenge test is a well-proven test of egg supply.
