Serophene, with the generic name clomiphene citrate, is an oral medication used as a fertility drug in women whose ovaries do not function properly, including Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). By helping increase the proper hormones, this medication stimulates the ovaries to release mature eggs, increasing the chance of conception.
Doctors often prescribe the drug in cases where a woman's ovaries can make eggs but do not make enough, making conception difficult. By stimulating the ovaries to release eggs, the drug can help increase the number and frequency of eggs that are released, increasing the chances that one will be fertilized. Doctors generally do not prescribe this drug when there is primary pituitary or ovarian failure and the ovaries no longer make eggs properly. Polycystic ovarian syndrome is one common cause of female infertility that doctors may treat with Serophene, helping to balance the hormones and increase the chance of pregnancy. Fertility doctors may also prescribe this medication to treat male infertility, when men have low testosterone levels, increasing sperm count.
Scientists believe this medication works by increasing the amount of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) in the body. These hormones then stimulate the ovaries to produce eggs that can then be released and fertilized.
Your doctor will determine the best dose and treatment schedule for you to take 50 mg. Usually the dose is one tablet a day for five days. If ovulation has likely not occurred after this treatment, the doctor may tell you to take two tablets a day for five days. Never take more than two tablets each day for five days. Doctors may repeat the Serophene treatments if a pregnancy has not occurred, but usually not for more than three treatment cycles. If you miss a dose while taking these tablets, contact your doctor. Do not double dose.
If you have blurred vision, contact your doctor right away. Seek emergency help immediately if you think you might have ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), with symptoms such as
This condition could be fatal although it is rare. Women taking the drug may have a ten percent higher chance of a multiple birth, such as twins, which can increase the chance of complications, such as low birth weight and premature birth. There is also an increased chance of an ectopic pregnancy after taking the medication, which is when the fetus develops in the fallopian tube instead of in the uterus. These may not be all the possible side effects.
Try to take your tablets at the same time each day, although otherwise there is no specific time of day you should take your fertility drugs. Store the drug at room temperature, away from light and moisture. Keep your fertility drugs out of the reach of children.
Fertility treatments with this medication may sometimes be combined with gonadoropins, which may contain follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) with or without luteinizing hormone (LH). This helps stimulate release of the eggs. Doctors may also combine Serophene with Metformin 500 mg or 850 mg, usually used for treating diabetes, when the patient has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Other items, such as fertility monitors and ovulation tests, can also complement Serophene fertility treatments.
PCOS, or polycystic ovarian syndrome, is a hormonal imbalance which usually involves small cysts growing on the ovaries. This hormonal imbalance can disrupt the menstrual cycle and make it difficult to conceive. When the body makes too many androgens, male sex hormones, the woman may stop ovulating among other problems like acne, excess body hair, and problems using insulin, which can increase the chance of diabetes.
