Sep 4, 2010 Clomiphene Citrate (Clomid) This drug is not a steroid; it is a synthetic estrogen used as a fertility drug. In men it can work as both an anti-estrogen, and a gonadotropic stimulant. Male steroid users find that it can work quite well to prevent gynecomastia while taking steroids that aromatise. It also is used to bring the body's natural testosterone levels back up to normal after a steroid cycle. The clomid acts directly on the pituitary gland to stimulate more gonadotropins. Women have used this drug to reduce the amount of estrogen in their systems, usually to harden up before a show. But in some cases women suffer estrogen deficiencies that can cause a number of side effects. No adverse reactions have been seen in males who used this drug. It can be quite effective, but is not favoured over HCG or Nolvadex in these areas. A dosage of 50 milligram per day for short cycles is most often seen. Clomid typically come in 50 mg tablets in boxes of between 10 - 25 per box in blister packs. Clomid is a synthetic estrogen used to induce ovulation in women. Bodybuilders typically use Clomid as an anti-estrogen and to stimulate testosterone production when coming off a steroid cycle. Clomid causes an elevation of follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone. As a result, natural testosterone production is also increased. After a steroid cycle, testosterone production is suppressed. If testosterone levels are not brought to normal, a dramatic loss in size and strength may occur. Clomid is an excellent drug for preventing this crash. Clomid is also an estrogen that works very well as an anti-estrogen. The reason that it works is that Clomid is a weak estrogen. It will typically bind to the estrogen receptors not allowing the harsher estrogens that are a byproduct of a testosterone cycle from attaching to the receptors. This signifigantly cuts down on the risks of bad side effects such as gyno. Cycling bodybuilders will suffer from an elevated estrogen level at the conclusion of a cycle. A high estrogen levels and low testosterone levels can be a disasterous combination. With the intake of Clomid, the athlete gets the dual effect of blocking out some of the effects of estrogen, while also increasing endogenous testosterone production. As far as side effects go, Clomid is a fairly safe drug. At the worst, you will get bloating, stomach pains, blurred vision, headaches, nausea, and dizzyness. Effective Dose The common dosage in male bodybuilders is 50- 100 mgs. per day taken for up to two weeks at a time. Most of the time you will be back to normal by 1 week of usage but it never hurts to take a little extra just to be on the safe side. You need to take Clomid with meals as well. Street Price This product is really expensive in US pharmacies so the black market price is high as well. It will sell for between $2 - 4 per tablet. Stacking Info This product is usually taken along with HCG. HCG is taken for a week or two first since its effects will start within a few hours of injection. Then Clomid is taken for a few weeks since Clomid helps regenerate the entire testosterone producing cycle whereas HCG only has direct testosterone stimulating effects on the LH (luteinizing hormone) production to stimulate testosterone production.
