Clomiphene citrate is a hormonal drug that induces ovulation in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). This drug inhibits the effect of estrogens, thereby continuing the production of gonadotropins. The consequence of this mechanism of action is that there is increased follicular growth.

  • Vaginal bleeding.
  • Swelling of the breasts.
  • Nausea.
