Clomiphene citrate is a drug which is given to induce ovulation. It should only be taken under the supervision of a registered medical practitioner and on a prescription. It should not be taken over the counter by the patient themselves. So couples who are willing or planning for pregnancy should actually go to a doctor and get a preconception counseling done, wherein the full examination will be done for the patient and a few tests will be advised wherein patients are put on folic acid, so after doing the preconception counseling, patients could adopt a very healthy lifestyle, do regular exercises, maintain ideal body weight and then stop smoking or drinking if they are doing so. So if they take all these measures into consideration and then they can plan for a healthy pregnancy ahead.
