In brief: 2 ways

In women who do not already ovulate, Clomiphene helps them to ovulate.
It tricks the body into making more of its own FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) in order to try to grow an egg. In women who already ovulate, it can help you make more than 1 egg at a time.

Clomid can also increase the ammount of Progesterone released such that the quality of ovulation is also improved.
