Clomiphene is an estrogen receptor-blocker that increases the secretion of a certain hormone, known as gonadotropin-releasing hormone, which blocks estrogen. Typically, Clomid is used to induce ovulation in women who do not produce eggs but desire to become pregnant. Low doses of clomiphene for male infertility may help increase sperm production, and it has been used to treat this condition. Side effects associated with the use of this drug include upset stomach, vomiting, and headache.

When used for female ovulation stimulation, the majority of patients who ovulate will do so after the first course of therapy.
If ovulation does not occur after three courses of therapy, the need for this drug should be re-evaluated. Notify your doctor if bloating, stomach or pelvic pain, blurred vision, jaundice, hot flushes or vomiting occur.
In a study by a Japanese researcher of 59 men with abnormal sperm, 36 men received a gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogue and 23 patients received oral clomiphene for three months.
Sperm density increased in men treated with the hormone analogue, but no significant change in sperm density occurred in men treated with Clomid.
Similarly, sperm motility improved with the hormone analogue but there were no statistically significant increases in men treated with this drug.
Overall, no adverse events were noted in either treatment group. Alternatively, in a Saudi Arabian study, Clomid used for abnormal sperm was associated with a significant increase in total sperm count and total motile sperm count.
The researchers concluded that clomiphene may be more effective in certain men with abnormal sperm and high levels of prolactin.
