Clomid or Clomiphene citrate, is an effective and powerful selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM). Clomid first became known as a powerful drug that helps with infertility in the early 1970s. It is relevant for these purposes and now. Most sports pharmacology users use Clomid for other purposes.
Although the drug is not an anabolic steroid, it belongs to the group of sex hormones. So, Clomid is a synthetic estrogen and can be used for:
- Combating the side effects of estrogen, that is, reducing the amount of female sex hormone.
- PCT cycle to revitalize your own testosterone production after taking anabolic steroids that suppress the production of male hormone.
Clomid’s principle of operation
The drug blocks estrogen receptors in tissues. But remember that it does not interfere with the formation of estrogen. Athletes on steroids suffer from low testosterone, and if this condition is ignored, cortisol levels increase. Subsequently, catabolic processes are triggered and the athlete quickly loses muscles. Doctors call this process the “reversal” effect.
Clomid also stimulates the pituitary gland to release additional FSH and LH, and this will also stimulate an improvement in the production of natural testosterone. Therefore, the use of Clomid during PCT to “launch” testosterone production will be relevant.
