Serophene Overview

Updated: 

Serophene is a prescription medication used to induce ovulation in women who do not produce eggs but wish to become pregnant.  Serophene belongs to a group of drugs called ovulatory stimulants. These work similarly to estrogen, a female hormone that causes eggs to develop in the ovaries and be released.

This medication comes in tablet form and is usually taken once a day by mouth, with or without food, for 5 days.

Common side effects of Serophene include upset stomach, flushing, nausea and vomiting, and breast discomfort.

Serophene can also cause blurred vision or dizziness.  Do not drive or operate heavy machinery until you know how Serophene affects you.
