Hello Clomid (clomiphene) (clomiphen) cannot be used in primary ovarian failure.
In primary ovarian failure the ovaries do not produce estrogen to cause ovulation (egg release). Clomid (clomiphene) (clomiphen) works by preventing estrogen from being turned off in the body. If someone does not produce estrogen in the first place than clomid (clomiphene) cannot work. But primary ovarian failure requires a doctor to determine if pt has it

In brief: Clomid (clomiphene)

Clomid (clomiphene) can help an annovulatory woman who does not have ovarian failure to deveop eggs.
Sometimes there will be an attempt with injectables to see whether there is any ovarian response. There is always hope with donor eggs.
