Serophene is an estrogen modulator prescribed to treat infertility in women.
How It Works
Serophene can cause the body to increase the levels of hormones like estrogen that induces the ovaries to release a mature egg. This process is commonly referred to as ovulation. Serophene can help women who have trouble ovulating due to hormonal problems.
For Serophene to work, the ovaries must be healthy enough to produce and release a mature egg. Women who are infertile because the ovaries do not produce eggs, conditions referred to as ovarian or primary pituitary failure, cannot be treated with Serophene.
Serophene is mainly prescribed for women with conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome, where naturally occurring ovulation is prevented. Women who needs stimulation for the pituitary gland to release hormones to ovulate are commonly prescribed this medication.
Serophene dosage will vary between individuals due to unique factors. A doctor will prescribe the correct dosage of Serophene for you.
