Clomid is an anti-estrogenic drug. It is classified as SERM (Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator). The component of this drug is Clomiphene citrate, it is a non-steroidal fertility drug used to aid women with ovulation issues. Clomid is one of many drugs used by anabolic steroid users to aid from the side effects of elevated estrogen levels that may occur while on anabolic steroids or hormonal replacement therapy.
Steroids such as testosterone and other testosterone derived steroids tend to convert to estrogen, this happens due to the interaction with an enzyme called Aromatase leading to an increase in estrogen levels. A high level of estrogen leads to Gynecomastia (man breast), water retention and might lead to high blood pressure caused by the retention. Stacking Clomid with steroids will inhibit the ability of estrogen to bind with the receptors preventing it from stimulating the mammary gland and having the un-natural growth of them.
Athletes and bodybuilders usually use Clomid in PCT (post cycle therapy), that’s because it has the ability to enhance the production of natural testosterone. when athletes use steroids such as testosterone, a suppression of natural testosterone production happens and it stays suppressed till the cycle ends. However once the cycle has finished, natural production of testosterone starts but in a very slow base, it may take 8 months to even a year for the natural testosterone to reach its pre-cycle level. That is way Clomid is recommended to be used not only during cycle but also in PCT, not only due to its anti-estrogenic effect, but also for its ability to aid with the natural testosterone production.
Note that this drug is not as effective as Aromatase inhibitor drugs such as Arimidex and Femara. If you are a strong anabolic steroid user this drug alone won’t be enough, so you might want to consider the usage Aromatase inhibitor while on a hardcore cycle.
Effects of Clomid 50
Clomid has strong antiestrogenic properties that can be useful in medicine and bodybuilding for athletes using steroids.
The fact is that testosterone and some steroids derived from testosterone are partially converted to estrogen.
An increased estrogen level leads to the development of gynecomastia (growth of the female breast) and excessive fluid retention in the body – both effects are undesirable in bodybuilding.
Excess fluid increases blood pressure and obscures muscle relief. That is why professional bodybuilders take diuretics to remove it from the subcutaneous layers on the drying of the body.
What does clomid: when it is taken on a course of steroids, it blocks estrogen receptors in the body, inhibiting its action. Therefore, it can be useful for the fight against gynecomastia, as the female breast grows under the influence of estrogen.
Most often, clomid in bodybuilding is used by athletes after a course of steroids on PCT (from the English PCT – Post Cycle Therapy – therapy after a course of steroids).
To speed up the restoration of the natural production of testosterone, which is almost completely suppressed while taking anabolics. The degree of suppression substantially depends on the type of steroid and dose.
That is why almost all courses of steroids include exogenous testosterone, but are not limited to one. This is to protect against the effects of low testosterone.
After stopping the use of steroids, the natural synthesis of testosterone begins to gradually recover, but full recovery takes quite a long time: from several months to a year.
PCT was developed specifically to speed up the process of restoring the natural production of testosterone using pharmacology.
The most popular PCT courses typically include clomid and tamoxifen, as well as the peptide hormone – chorionic gonadotropin. Tamoxifen is an analogue of clomid by its antiestrogenic properties.
For the usage of this drug while on anabolic steroid, a dose of 50mg per day throughout the cycle is considered enough. However if this dose is not protecting you from the side effect, then consider replacing this drug with an Aromatase inhibitor.
As for PCT, the duration of the therapy should last from 4-6 weeks. In the first 1-2 weeks the dose starts from 100-150mg per day. After that, the dose should be decreased for 100-50mg per day for 1-2 weeks. At the last two weeks a dose of 50mg per day is taken.
Clomid is considered one of the best tolerated anti-estrogens in sports pharmacology and does not lead to serious side effects in either men or women. This is confirmed by scientific research.
However, some side effects are possible.
Women who take clomiphene citrate to treat infertility report at least one of the following side effects: irritability, mood swings, depression, water retention in the body.
Other possible side effects:
- hot flashes (a sharp increase in temperature);
- uterine bleeding;
- discomfort in the chest;
- vision problems;
When using clomid, visual impairment in the form of blurred and blurred is possible. In this case, it is recommended to stop its use and then vision will be restored in most cases. Several cases are known when this did not happen, most likely due to the fact that clomid was taken for a very long time in very large doses.
It is likely that taking clomiphene can lead to a decrease in bone density.
