In brief: Blocks estrogen

Clomiphene blocks estrogen receptors in the pituitary gland, which results in an increase in natural gonadotropins (fsh and lh).
Fsh stimulates maturation of a follicle in the ovary.

In brief: Estrogen receptor

Clomid (clomiphene) blocks the estrogen receptors in the brain.
The brain in turn releases hormones that stimulate the ovaries to produce eggs.
