Novo-pharm Clomid - Clomiphene Citrate General Description
Clomiphene citrate is a potent antiestrogen drug similar to tamoxifen (tamoxifen citrate). The medicine was first used in female patients in the 1970s to treat infertility. This antiestrogen is used by athletes during anabolic-androgenic steroid cycles to reduce undesirable adverse reactions induced by the conversion of testosterone to estrogen (a female sex hormone) and to increase the development of natural testosterone during post-cycle therapy.
Clomiphene citrate has an effect on the pituitary gland's estrogen receptors. Through binding them, the medication prevents the regular feedback – estrogens usually reduce LH and FSL development, but this is avoided by using the antiestrogen. Clomid does not directly affect the production of female sex hormones in the body.
Novo-pharm Clomid Benefits
Novo-pharm Clomiphene citrate is characterized by a strong antiestrogen activity which athletes who use steroids highly appreciate in sports. This is because many anabolic drugs dependent on testosterone are partly converted into estrogen in the body. High levels of such hormones lead to gynecomastia – the growth of the breast and excessive swelling.
Excess water in the body leads to higher blood pressure and lower development of muscles. That's why diuretics are used by professional athletes. Novo-pharm Clomid blocks estrogen receptors when used in cycles of anabolic-androgenic steroids. That's why it can alleviate signs of gynecomastia. The antiestrogen is used for different effects:
• prevention and elimination of gynecomastia - densities, swelling and breast growth;
• restoration of testosterone production and improved function of the hypothalamic–pituitary–gonadal axis;
• better muscle.
When using this antiestrogen, athletes can maintain muscle and strength gained. Setbacks after heavily aromatized steroids are possible, but not significant.
Clomiphene can suppress excess water retention, but not to the full extent, as it does not reduce the concentration of estrogen in the body, but blocks hormone receptor action. During post-cycle therapy, it is better to use Clomid instead of the anabolic steroid cycle itself. The antiestrogen is needed to restore the natural male hormone production, which starts to return to normal slowly after the use of steroids has been stopped, but this takes a significant period of time – several months or even a full year.
For cases with lower testosterone levels, the concentration of catabolic cortisol hormone is increased, resulting in excess fat deposits and degradation of muscle tissue. If the use of steroids is completely stopped for at least 8 weeks, PCT should be performed with this antiestrogen. If the gap between cycles is a bridge, the incorporation of additional testosterone in the body (this is done by professional athletes) takes less than the specified period of time or within 2 months, so post-cycle therapy is not needed.
The concentration of FSH and LH is rapidly increased to the maximum in the first days of using clomiphene citrate as well as the amount of testosterone in the body. After a few weeks of the cycle, testosterone returns to normal. The normal level of the male sex hormone is restored 2-6 weeks later, while the concentration of LH and FSH is reduced after the antiestrogen use has been stopped. The length of the antiestrogen use depends on the athlete's individual characteristics and the drug cycle severity.
Novo-pharm Clomid Possible Side Effects
Clomiphene citrate is considered a well-tolerated antiestrogen in sports and, as confirmed by scientific studies, does not cause serious adverse reactions. Nonetheless, in cases of human intolerance or excessive dose, side effects are likely.
Females may experience unwanted side effects in the form of irritability, abrupt emotional changes, depressed feelings, swelling. There are also other side effects that are likely frequent headaches, bouts of nausea, sharp increases in body temperature, unpleasant sensation in the chest area, acne, deteriorated vision.
Use of clomiphene citrate can result in visual disturbances such as blurred vision. To remove any side effects, it is necessary to stop using the antiestrogen and substitute it with another medication of the same class of medicines.
Novo-pharm Clomid Administration and Dosage
The dose of the antiestrogen depends on the severity of the anabolic drug cycle completed. The more medications you take, the more dosages you use, the more you need to recover the body's normal functioning. Use can vary:
• PCT after a very mild cycle – 15 days at 50 mg daily, then it’s 15 days at 25 mg of the active component;
• a mild cycle – 15 days at 50 mg daily, then it’s 15 days at 25 mg once every two days;
• a medium cycle – 30 days at 50 mg daily, then it’s 15 days at 25 mg;
• a severe anabolic steroids cycle – 15 days at 100 mg daily, then it’s 15 days at 50 mg, and finally it’s 15 days at 25 mg of the drug daily;
• PCT after a very severe cycle – 3 days at 150 mg, then it’s 12 days at 100 mg, and finally it’s 15 days at 50 mg daily and 15 days at 25 mg.
To restore the production of testosterone, testosterone boosters should be used. It is also recommended to maintain a sport diet. If the main active component of the steroid has stopped its action in the body, clomiphene should be introduced.
