Is enclomiphene the same as Clomid?
Clomid is a mixture of two isomers: zuclomiphene and enclomiphene. The former is a weak estrogen agonist and the latter is a strong estrogen antagonist. Repros Therapeutics is developing enclomiphene for elevating endogenous testosterone in men with secondary hypogonadism.
How is Clomid used to get pregnant?
It's an oral medication that is often used to treat certain types of female infertility. Clomid works by making the body think that your estrogen levels are lower than they are, which causes the pituitary gland to increase secretion of follicle stimulating hormone, or FSH, and luteinizing hormone, or LH.
How long does Clomid take to get pregnant?
The typical protocol is a 50mg dose per day on days 3 to 7 of the menstrual cycle, though precise treatment will vary by individual. Most women will ovulate 7 to 10 days after taking Clomid pills, which means you're most likely to conceive on days 11 through 21 of your cycle.
Is Clomid the same as enclomiphene?
