Clomid (Clomiphene Citrate)
Clomid stimulates the hypothalamus to, in turn stimulant the anterior pituitary gland to release
gonadotrophic hormones.
The gonadotrophic hormones are follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH). Follicle
Stimulating Hormone (FSH) stimulates the testes to produce more testosterone, and LH stimulates them
to secrete more testosterone. This feedback mechanism is known as the hypothalamic-pituitary-testes
axis (HPTA),and results in an increase of the body’s own testosterone production.
Best way to take Clomid is to wait until androgen levels in our blood get lower and you can determine this
How To Use Clomid
Day 1 300mg
Days 2-7 100mg daily
Days 8-14 50mg daily
Nolvadex (Tamoxifen Citrate)
Nolvadex is a SERM (Selective Estrogen-Receptor Modulator.) It selectively binds to certain estrogen
receptors, effectively blocking the estrogen.
It may be used during steroid cycle in case you feel gyno symptoms at 10mg/day until gyno symptoms go
away or for Post Cycle Therapy at dosage of 20mg/day for 4 weeks.
May be stacked with Clomid in some cases.
How To Use Nolvadex
20mg/day for 4 weeks after steroid cycle.
HCG – Human chorionic gonadotropin.
HCG’s role is to stimulate Leydig cells in testes to produce testosterone even when there is not
endogenous LH.
Leydig cells, also known as interstitial cells of Leydig, are found adjacent to the seminiferous
tubules in the testicle. They produce testosterone in the presence of luteinizing hormone (LH).
Leydig cells are polyhedral in shape, display a large prominent nucleus, an eosinophilic
cytoplasm and numerous lipid-filled vesicles. (c) WIKIPEDIA
Now to main point, many use HCG after cycle in order to help restore natural testosterone production but
we at steroidscycles dot net think that better to use HCG during heavy cycle in order to avoid testicular
atrophy. Using between 500IU and 1000IU per day for 2 weeks is a good choice. Here is good to add
10mg of nolvadex (tamoxifen citrate) in order to prevent estrogenic symptoms which may appear as a
result of aromatisation.
HCG usage during cycle should be stopped with 7 weeks before you begin Post Cycle Therapy.
How To Use HCG
500-1000 IU/day for 2 weeks while on heavy steroid cycle
Great info here except stopping 7 weeks before PCT. This could be a typo. You can actually run a low dose of hcg 125 iu's the last week up to your start day of PCT.

Probably another typo, but FSH increases sperm production while LH increases TT secretion.

That's what I get for using the cell phone that darn spell corrector - 7 weeks? Both you guys are correct but typically many would old school it 7 days not weeks lol. Theory is one needs to regain size of nut on order to house more fluids and soerm. Many guys also run HCG throughout the cycle - you can actually find several theories that have been used, but yes the 7 weeks was typo
