How does Serophene work?

Serophene or clomifene citrate stimulates the pre-ovalutary function and rupture of follicles in women's uterus, which lead to increased level of pituitary gonadotropin. This increased pituitary gonadotropin which stimulates the steroidogenesis and folliculogenesis. Steroidogenesis is responsible for the formation of steroids and folliculogenesis is responsible for the maturation of ovarian follicles. These two processes are very necessary for the formation of egg.

Serophene works by stopping the estrogen receptor in the hypothalamus which inhibits the negative activity of estrogen on gonadotropin release. This increases the regulation of hypothalamic pituitary gonadotropin axis. The hypothalamic pituitary gonadotropin axis means the influence of hypothalamus, pituitary gland and gonads, which is essential for reproduction. Serophene stops the effects of estrogen hormone, causing the increased production of the most important hormone LH(luteinising hormone) and FSH(follicle stimulating hormone), that are responsible for the egg formation and maturation. This whole process is responsible for the normal reproductive procedure.
