Uses of Promifen Tablets
Promifen Tablets is used in the treatment of:
- Female Infertility

Clomiphene Citrate (Promifen) stimulates the release of hormones necessary for ovulation to occur.
Clomiphene is used to stimulate ovulation (the release of an egg) when a woman's ovaries can produce a follicle but hormonal stimulation is deficient.
Promifen causes the pituitary gland to produce more follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH), which, in turn, stimulate the ovaries into producing more eggs and follicles. Impediments to achieving pregnancy must be excluded or adequately treated before you start therapy using Promifen. Clomifene citrate may also be used for the treatment of secondary male hypogonadism.
