Estrogen inhibitors such as Clomiphene citrate are administered in cases where the hypothalamic functioning is normal. Clomiphene citrate is mainly used when ovulation induction and intrauterine insemination are combined to increase the production of quality mature eggs. These estrogen inhibitors induce follicular development by stimulating the release of gonadotropins.
